Braves exercise option on manager Brian Snitker for 2018

ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves have exercised their option on manager Brian Snitker for the 2018 season.

The decision to retain Snitker came after the Braves finished third in the NL East at 72-90, a small improvement from 68 wins in 2016.

The improvement was not as substantial as Snitker and the Braves had hoped. Snitker and the Braves were held back by a mix of young pitchers not yet ready to succeed in the majors and such veterans as Bartolo Colon and Jaime Garcia who mostly struggled after being signed as one-year fill-ins.
