Atlanta Braves hire Alex Anthopoulos as next general manager


The hire has not been confirmed publicly by the Braves.

Anthopoulos is expected to make final decisions on all baseball matters, though John Hart remains with the club as president of baseball operations.

The official announcement is expected to come sometime during the MLB GM meetings, which begin on Monday. He would replace John Coppolella after he resigned last month as a result of a breach of Major League Baseball rules regarding the global player market after two years on the job.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits concerns over new Sadio Mane injury problem
The Senegalese federation stated Mane had "slightly felt his old injury" and returned to his club to continue treatment. Mane will be assessed when he returns to the club's Melwood training facility.

The team cited a breach of rules in the global market as the reason for Coppolella's resignation in early October. The results of the investigation and possible penalties are forthcoming.

Anthopoulos was the Braves' second choice for the job with Kansas City Royals GM Dayton Moore being their favourite, Sherman writes. Hart's own contract with the Braves expired after the 2017 season, and it isn't yet clear if he will remain atop Atlanta's baseball ops pyramid or if the team could desire a clean slate with a new name in charge of the front office.

This past season the Dodgers made it to the World Series for the first time since 1988, but fell one game short of winning the championship. Moore spent more than a decade with the Braves as a scout and executive before taking over as Royals general manager in 2006.

Alex Anthopoulos, 40, served as general manager for the Toronto Blue Jays from 2009 to 2015 when he declined the team's offer of a five-year extension.

Anthopoulos had a mostly successful tenure in Toronto, where he built a playoff team with some big and bold moves, but he left after Mark Shapiro was named Toronto president and a personality difference surfaced.
