MILWAUKEE — The Brewers have rounded out manager Craig Counsell’s staff, bringing in Steve Karsay as bullpen coach to work with new pitching coach Chris Hook.

Hook was promoted from pitching coordinator following 11 seasons in Milwaukee’s minor league system as an instructor. He’ll be joined by Karsay, an 11-year major league veteran who spent the past three seasons as pitching coach at Triple-A Columbus in Cleveland’s system. Karsay worked with Indians starters Michael Clevinger and Shane Bieber.

Milwaukee also added Andy Haines as hitting coach. Haines spent one season as assistant hitting coach for the NL Central-rival Chicago Cubs. He was the Cubs’ minor league hitting coordinator from 2016-17.

Haines also spent eight seasons with the Marlins organization, where he managed Brewers outfielder and NL MVP Christian Yelich in the minors.

General manager David Stearns also announced Jason Lane would return as assistant hitting coach. Scott Barringer was named head athletic trainer.
