Arnold, 36, replaces Gord Ash, who served in that role for the Brewers since November 2002. Stearns is talking with Ash about assuming another role in the front office.
Arnold previously worked as pro scouting director for the Rays and recently was interviewed by the Miami Marlins for a front office position with that club. He was mentioned as a possible candidate for the Brewers’ GM job but it was Tampa Bay assistant GM Chaim Bloom who actually was interviewed before Stearns was hired.
Arnold assisted Rays president of baseball Operations Matt Silverman in player acquisitions, contract negotiation and internal farm system evaluation. His responsibilities also included foreign and domestic special assignments and coordinating advance scouting coverage for the postseason.
In addition, Arnold oversaw the integration of science, biomechanics and human movement analysis within baseball operations at all levels.

from the article
One day after finishing a dismal 2015 season with a 68-94 record, the Brewers did some major house cleaning on their coaching staff, firing everyone except hitting coach Darnell Coles and third base coach Ed Sedar.
Pitching coach Rick Kranitz, bench coach Jerry Narron, first base coach Mike Guerrero, bullpen coach Lee Tunnell and assistant hitting coach John Shelby did not have their contracts renewed. Kranitz, Narron and Shelby had been on the staff since former manager Ron Roenicke’s first year in 2011.
It was the first official day on the job for new general manager David Stearns but these moves had as much to do with manager Craig Counsell’s plans. Upon replacing Roenicke on May 4, Counsell inherited a coaching staff not of his making and now he has the opportunity to do so.
“Obviously, this is a challenging day,” said Stearns. “Jerry, Rick, Lee, Mike and John have given a tremendous amount to the organization. They have touched players at a variety of levels and have left a very strong impact on a number of people here.

ryan braun tied robin yount’s franchise record with his 251st home run. pretty low bar to clear in terms of career homers for a team.
“It’s definitely a special accomplishment, something to be proud of,” said Braun, whose four career homers against Harang are tied for his highest total against any pitcher.
“Robin’s obviously the greatest player in franchise history. Played here for 20 years, accomplished so many amazing things, so anytime you are mentioned alongside his name it’s definitely a special accomplishment.”
it was one sorry pitch. i think it’s an insult to curves to call that thing a curveball. it just kind of loped its way toward home plate
