Milwaukee Brewers: Top 5 Candidates to Replace Dale Sveum as Hitting Coach

After weeks worth of speculation, the Chicago Cubs finally found their manager of the future with the hiring of now former Milwaukee Brewers bench and hitting coach Dale Sveum (via Washington Post).

While the move will prove to be brilliant for the north-siders, the same cannot be said for the team relinquishing their former assistant-skipper of the last six seasons.

Aiding in Milwaukee's first postseason series victory since 1982 and first NLCS appearance, the 47-year-old California native was a valued piece in one of the greatest seasons in the club's history. He has served as a helping hand to Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun and every hitter on Ron Roenicke's depth chart.

Now that Sveum has moved on to pursue his own managerial career, who will replace him in Milwaukee's dugout? 

Here are five candidates worth mentioning.
