MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers and manager Craig Counsell have agreed to a contract extension through the 2023 season.

"Over the last five seasons, Craig has led our team with a passion and intelligence that has resulted in some of the greatest success in the history of the franchise."

Counsell is entering his sixth season as the Brewers' manager and fifth full season.
