Red Sox hire ex-Braves GM Frank Wren as senior vice president

Friday September 25th, 2015

The Boston Red Sox have hired former Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren as their new senior vice president of baseball operations, the team announced Friday.

The news comes one day after the Red Sox promoted Mike Hazen to general manager. It’s the latest move made by Dave Dembrowski, who was hired in August as president of baseball operations.

Wren and Dombrowski worked together for 11 years in Montreal and Florida before Wren moved on to become the general manager of the Baltimore Orioles for the 1999 season.

He then joined the Braves as a top assistant general manager for eight years before becoming the team’s executive vice president and general manager from 2008 to 2014.

The Red Sox also promoted Jared Banner to director of player personnel and named Brad Person the head athletic trainer.
