Fredi Gonzalez, coaching staff get contract extension

Embattled manager Fredi Gonzalez as well as the rest of the coaching staff just received a contract extension

One of the more talked about aspects of the Braves is the future of manager Fredi Gonzalez. While some argue that the results this year shouldn't effect his future with the team, others argue that his handling of the lineup as well as the bullpen this year (and years prior) among other reasons warrant the organization moving on.

Well, it appears that for now at least, Fredi Gonzalez is going to be the manager of the Braves through at least 2016 with a club option for 2017.

And it isn't just Fredi, every MLB coach for the Braves is getting extended.

That means the Braves will presumably be able to keep pitching coach Roger McDowell from leaving to pursue a managerial job as well as longtime coaches Eddie Perez and Terry Pendleton.

Gonzalez has a managerial record of 634-569, including a 400-337 record with the Braves.
