MILWAUKEE (AP) – Almost 14 years after the Milwaukee Brewers traded infielder Dale Sveum, the team is bringing him back as its third-base coach.

Sveum replaces Rich Donnelly, who was let go at the end of the season. Sveum was most recently the third-base coach for the Boston Red Sox for two years.

The Brewers picked Sveum 25th in the first round of the 1982 amateur draft. He hit .243 with 46 home runs and 236 RBIs in his five years in Milwaukee.

A career .236 hitter, Sveum’s best year for the Brewers came in 1987 when he batted .252 with 25 home runs and 95 RBIs.

Sveum also played for the Chicago White Sox, Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners, Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Yankees.
