Brewers extend contract with Brevard County
MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers finalized a two-year extension of their player development contract with the Class A Brevard County Manatees on Friday, leaving only the team's top two affiliates in limbo beyond this season.

The Brewers' contracts with Triple-A Nashville and Double-A Huntsville expire in September, with Milwaukee officials eying stadium developments in both cities.

The new deal with the Manatees runs through 2014. That team plays home games in Viera, Fla., at Space Coast Stadium, the pitcher-friendly Spring Training home of the Nationals, and has been a Brewers' summer affiliate since 2005.

"General manager Kyle Smith and his front office have made the Manatees a great stepping stone for our Major League hopefuls," Brewers farm director Reid Nichols said in a statement announcing the extension. "This is a working relationship that we hope to continue for many years."
