ATLANTA – The Atlanta Braves have exercised their 2018 contract option on manager Brian Snitker.

The 2018 campaign will mark Snitker’s third at the helm of the Braves and his 42nd as a member of the organization.  He was named interim manager on May 16, 2016, before officially being named as the club’s manager on October 11, 2016. 

“Brian is a life-long Brave who has earned the respect and admiration of our players, staff and front office,” Braves President of Baseball Operations John Hart said. “He has devoted his last 42 years to this organization and has proven that he is dedicated to guiding the team through this transition period. We are excited to have him back in the dugout to lead our club next season.”

Decisions on the remainder of the coaching staff will be made in the coming weeks.
