Braves exercise option on manager Brian Snitker for 2018

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves exercised their option on manager Brian Snitker for the 2018 season on Thursday, providing some stability to an organization now looking for a new general manager.

The decision on Snitker comes three days after general manager John Coppolella was forced to resign when an investigation by Major League Baseball revealed serious rules violations in the international player market. Gordon Blakeley, a special assistant to the GM, also resigned.

Snitker was named interim manager on May 16, 2016 and was named to full-time job following the 2016 season.
