With Spring Training quickly approaching, Atlanta Braves news is beginning to return to midseason form. First up, the Braves announced the minor league coaching staff for the 2024 season.

Kanekoa Texeira is at the helm for the Gwinnett Stripers to replace Matt Tuiasosopo, who was promoted to the major league coaching staff. 37-year-old Texeira previously managed the Rome and Mississippi Braves.

Angel Flores, previously the manager of the Rome Braves, will take over as manager for Double-A Mississippi. The high-A affiliate, recently dubbed the Rome Emperors, will be managed by Cody Gabella. The Augusta GreenJackets, the low-A affiliate, will be managed by rookie manager Winston Sawyer. The FCL and DSL Braves will stick with the same managers for the upcoming season.
