ATLANTA (AP) The Atlanta Braves fired general manager Frank Wren on Monday, less than 24 hours after being eliminated from the NL playoff race.

The move was announced by team president John Schuerholz, who called it a "cumulative" decision based on the team's performance and troubling signs in player development.

Former Cleveland and Texas general manager John Hart replaces Wren on an interim basis. While the 66-year-old Hart said it wasn't his desire to take the job permanently, Schuerholz said it's possible he would be considered.
