Snitker gets 2-year extension; managed Braves to playoffs

ATLANTA (AP) Brian Snitker has a two-year contract for only the second time in his 43 years with the Braves.

It's little wonder that Snitker, who turns 63 on Wednesday, said Monday he never assumed he'd be asked to return as manager even after leading Atlanta to a surprise NL East division title and its first playoff berth since 2013.

"I've been around long enough to know you're never guaranteed tomorrow in this business," Snitker said after his two-year deal was announced by general manager Alex Anthopoulos. The deal includes a club option for 2021.
