David Stearns steps down as Brewers’ president of baseball ops

David Stearns is stepping down as the Brewers’ president of baseball operations but will remain with the organization in an advisory role to owner Mark Attanasio, the team announced Thursday.

Matt Arnold, who has been the Brewers’ senior vice president and general manager since 2020, will take over the lead role in overseeing baseball operations.

Stearns had led the Brewers’ baseball operations during arguably the franchise’s greatest run of sustained success. He joined the Brewers in October 2015 as general manager and was named president of baseball operations before the 2019 season.

So he is still under contract which is why he isn't leaving but stepping down as GM means he won't stay. Astros and Mets waiting to pounce

It seems like if this was a ploy to allow him to leave for another PBO role, the Brewers would see through that, right?

Yeah, he can't go for a year. But that allows Mil to make a transition. What this means is he isn't staying in MIL past his contract

saw a tweet somewhere that he said "I'm not going anywhere. I'm staying in Milwaukee."

It's a curious move regardless. He's only 37, a bit early to be put out to pasture. Even if his plan is to go elsewhere next year, there's no real difference between Stearns grooming Arnold for another year then handing over the reins when he leaves. Possibly this is more about knowing they won't be able to keep Stearns past next year but making sure Arnold sticks around -- maybe his contract was also coming up so promote (and extend?) him now.
