ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have fired general manager Frank Wren.
The move was announced Monday by team president John Schuerholz, one day after the team was eliminated from the NL playoff race.
Schuerholz has appointed former major league executive and MLB Network analyst John Hart as the team's interim general manager.
The Braves have formed a three-person team to conduct the search for Wren's replacement. It will include Schuerholz, Hart and former Braves manager Bobby Cox.
Wren was in his 15th season with the Braves and his seventh as the club's general manager. He was named to the GM post after the 2007 season, when Schuerholz gave up his longtime job to become team president.
