Braves Hire John Hart As Special Advisor

John HartThe Braves have announced that they have hired John Hart as senior advisor to their baseball operations department.

Hart, you probably know, is the former general manager of the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers.

Hart’s contract with the Rangers was up after this past season. It’s possible this move relates to Nolan Ryan’s departure from the Rangers organization, but given that he predated Ryan in Texas, I wouldn’t read too much into that.

It is likely just a matter of new challenges in a new environment and a chance to work with an old friend in Schuerholz.
