After making the playoffs in two of the last three seasons, the Atlanta Braves have extended the contract of general manager Frank Wren through 2014 and have promoted two of his assistants.

Wren was named GM on Oct. 11, 2007, and has been a large part in the Braves' recent success. Since 2009, only the Phillies have more wins in the National League.

"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 told braves.com.

This year, Wren was able to make a number of moves before and after the non-waiver trade deadline that helped the Braves win 94 games, their most since 2004, en route to a Wild Card spot in the playoffs.

The Braves have also promoted assistant general manager and director of player development Bruce Manno's title to include vice president at the beginning. John Coppolella has been promoted from director of professional scouting to assistant GM as well.
