Anthopoulos to be named Braves GM

Anthopoulos to be named Braves GM

In regards to Hart's future, Bowman notes that since both Anthopoulos and Hendry are experienced general managers, either could take over the Braves' baseball ops department should Hart no longer continue with the organization. He somewhat surprisingly left the job after his contract was up after the 2015 season, however, the presence of new Jays president Mark Shapiro meant that Anthopoulos would've essentially been demoted to second-in-command on the team's depth chart of baseball decision-makers. He has a background in scouting but was among the first wave of young GMs to fully utilize analytics and is also known to be aggressive in trades.

The Braves' front office was embattled as former GM John Coppolella violated rules in connection with the signing of worldwide players.

Atlanta has operated without a GM since John Coppolella resigned in October. Though Blakeley soon rescinded his resignation, he has not continued as a Braves employee and met again last week with Major League Baseball offficials in NY as part of its investigation.

The Braves' first choice was believed to be Dayton Moore, a former Atlanta assistant GM who left to become Royals GM and built Kansas City into a two-time American League pennant victor and 2015 World Series champion. But Kansas City did not give permission to Moore to interview for the position.

As I was proof reading I learned that Anthopoulus had been hired.

Sherman noted John Hart will remain as the team's president of baseball operations for the time being but called him more of a "counsel/figurehead".
