Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker has been with the organization for over 45 years in various roles before he took over as manager in 2016. In those seven seasons, Snitker has delivered just two losing records, but that was his first two years and now is on a five-season winning streak.

Snitker's job in 2021 has been his career highlight, helping the Braves to a World Series title, overcoming a number of injuries, including one to Atlanta's best player, Ronald Acuna Jr.

On Saturday, the Braves rewarded Snitker with an extension through the 2025 season.

Snitker's contract went rhough the 2024 season, but this added year is presumed to come with a pay raise as well. 2022 was another solid season for the Braves, winning the NL East, although they fell short in thier bid to repeat as chamions.

Atlanta lost it's starting shortstop Dansby Swanson this offseason but is still projected to compete for the N: East title and be one of baseball's better teams.

As of now, the Braves are tied for the fifth-best odds to win the 2023 World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest MLB odds.
