MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Brewers and manager Craig Counsell have agreed to a three-year contract extension through the 2020 season.

General manager David Stearns made the announcement on Friday at Miller Park.

The 46-year-old Counsell just finished his first full season as skipper. He has a 134-165 record since taking over in May 2015 for the fired Ron Roenicke.

The rebuilding Brewers finished 73-89 this past season, a five-win improvement from 2015.
