Braves fire GM after missing playoffs
ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves have fired general manager Frank Wren, less than 24 hours after being eliminated from the National League playoff race.
Former major league executive and MLB Network analyst John Hart has been named as the team’s interim general manager.
Wren was in his 15th season with the Braves and his seventh as the club’s general manager.
The Braves have been one of baseball’s biggest disappointments this season. A half-game behind the Washington Nationals for the NL East lead on July 29, Atlanta plummeted out of contention by winning just 18 of its next 49 games.
