Anthopoulos to be named Braves GM

Braves narrow search for next GM

The Atlanta Braves will name Alex Anthopoulos their new general manager, a source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, confirming multiple reports.

The official announcement is expected to come sometime during the MLB GM meetings, which begin on Monday. Joel Sherman of the New York Post first reported that Anthopoulos was getting that job. Sherman reports that Hart prefers Anthopoulos for the GM job, while club vice chairman John Schuerholz is thought to prefer former Cubs GM Jim Hendry. There is said to be no evidence directly implicating Hart in the rule breaking found to this point, but he was in charge when it occurred and there's a question of a management issue. The results of the investigation and possible penalties are forthcoming. Anthopoulos is expected to have final say in baseball matters.

Anthopoulos spent the past two seasons working under Andrew Friedman, the Dodgers' president of baseball operations, in Los Angeles. The Braves' first choice for the job had been Royals GM Dayton Moore, but owner David Glass never even granted Moore permission to interview. Shapiro originally offered Anthopoulos a short deal to stay before upper management stepped in and offered about $10 million over five years; Anthopoulos left anyway.
