Anthopoulos to be named Braves GM

Former Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos will be announced as the Atlanta Braves' new general manager, and it appears he will have ultimate decision-making authority in the baseball department.

Anthopoulos is expected to be introduced Monday at the GM meetings in Orlando.

Current baseball president John Hart will not retain those type powers, sources say, but is expected to remain in the organization in some capacity, perhaps as more of a consultant.

The Braves have been without a general manager since John Coppolella resigned over a month ago.

The Blue Jays hired Mark Shapiro as their president prior to the 2015 postseason, which ultimately resulted in Anthopoulos and the club parting ways at the end of the season.

The Atlanta Braves reportedly have their new general manager. But Kansas City did not give permission to Moore to interview for the position.

The Braves' first choice was believed to be Dayton Moore, a former Atlanta assistant GM who left to become Royals GM and built Kansas City into a two-time American League pennant victor and 2015 World Series champion.

Anthopoulos took over as Blue Jays general manager in 2009 and rebuilt that team into a division victor in 2015, ending a postseason drought of 22 years in Toronto. The former Blue Jays GM will be taking over for John Coppalella, who was sacked following MLB's investigation into the team's activities in the global market.

Anthopoulos joined the Los Angeles Dodgers in January of 2016 as the team's vice president.
