The Atlanta Braves are in the NLCS against the Dodgers, making another postseason appearance under their current manager.
The Atlanta Braves have become a perennial postseason team in MLB with their crop of young talent, even if they’re in the 2021 NLCS without Ronald Acuña Jr. But that takes a good manager to get the team to that point, no matter how talented.
But if you’re wondering who the Atlanta Braves manager is, you aren’t alone.
Who is the Atlanta Braves manager?
The Braves are managed by Brian Snitker. The former MLB player took over in 2016 and has won the NL East in each of the last four seasons. Moreover, he’s produced a winning record overall with a 429-383 clip since he took over.
That’s a big improvement managed by Snitker. When he took over the team in 2016, they finished the year at 59-65 under his watch. The following year, they went only 72-90. But that jumped to 90 wins the following season and the Atlanta Braves have not looked back.
Suffice it to say, Snitker likely won’t be going anywhere soon with how well he’s done with the Braves to this point.
Of course, the next step for the Braves manager will be to get his team over the hump as they’ve lost in the NLDS twice and the NLCS once before their current series against the Dodgers.
