Braves name John Hart president of baseball operations
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Braves announced Thursday former Indians and Rangers general manager John Hart has been named president of baseball operations. He has agreed to a three-year contract that runs through the 2017 season.

"I'm delighted that John Hart has agreed to accept the position of president, baseball operations," president John Schuerholz said, per the team's official website. "Our organization is now poised to move forward in the best possible manner to do the important work that lies ahead. John's credentials speak for themselves. He has had great success as a baseball executive and demonstrated remarkable ability to construct championship teams. We are excited by John's dynamic and positive leadership style and look forward to him leading our baseball operations."

Schuerholz named Hart the interim general manager when he dismissed Frank Wren in late September. Schuerholz had hoped Hart would assume the role on a full-time basis before accepting the president of baseball operations role.

The Braves will go without one person holding the title of general manager. However, Hart and assistant general manager John Coppolella will share the general manager responsibilities.

Schuerholz: Story about John Hart, GM job, inaccurate
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves president John Schuerholz has refuted a Yahoo Sports report claiming that interim general manager John Hart has rejected an offer to take the job full-time, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

The Yahoo story indicated that the Braves have turned their attention to assistant GM John Coppolella and Royals GM Dayton Moore because Hart had turned down the post.

"At best the [Yahoo] article was not accurate with either the facts or the assumptions," Schuerholz wrote in an email. Schuerholz did not elaborate.
