The Braves have extended general manager Frank Wren through the 2014 season.

The Atlanta Braves have extended general manager Frank Wren through the 2014 season, reports Mark Bowman of MLB.com:

"These changes are a reflection of the good work and success of our Major League baseball team and the work of Frank and his senior staff," Braves president John Schuerholz said.

Along with Wren’s extension, the Braves announced that assistant general manager and director of player development Bruce Manno will be promoted to vice president and assistant general manager/player development.

Wren took over as Atlanta’s GM prior to the 2008 season. After finishing 72-90 in ‘08, the Braves have won at least 86 games in each of the past four years, making the playoffs twice. Wren has a career record of 432-378 as Atlanta’s GM.

Following last year’s late-season collapse, the Braves rebounded to win 94 games and claim the National League’s top Wild Card playoff spot. Shrewd summer acquisitions of starting pitchers Ben Sheets and Paul Maholm helped Atlanta make the postseason.

While they lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in the inaugural one-game Wild Card playoff, the Braves figure to be a contender in the NL once again next season.
