Ready will replace Dave Brundage, who left after six years as the Braves’ Triple-A manager (two in Richmond, four in Gwinnett) to take the Triple-A managing job in the Phillies organization in Lehigh Valley.

Ready, 52, comes to the Braves from the Texas Rangers where he served as their minor league hitting coordinator last season. But a majority of his experience comes from his time with the San Diego Padres, where he served as their major league hitting coach from July of 2009 through the 2011 season.

Prior to that, Ready spent six seasons as a minor league manager for the Padres, including 2008 and the first part of 2009 with Triple-A Portland. He is 489-466 as a minor league manager.

Ready is a former major leaguer – primarily playing second and third base – who spent 13 seasons with the Brewers, Padres, Phillies, Athletics and Expos.

“I’m very excited to join the Atlanta Braves organization,” Ready said in a press release. “The Braves have been a model of consistency as an organization for a long time. I’m looking forward to the upcoming 2013 season and being a part of the Braves family moving forward.”

this is going to be the Braves’ top signing this odd season. they had to hire a new manager otherwise they would have left the job vacant to save a few more dollars.

he can’t be worse than the parent team’s manager.

I haven’t seen any team besides the Braves lose a free agent off their 2012 25 man roster yet. at least we lead the majors in something.

Wow! The Fredi bashers come out from the woodwork when they see a story about someone else. Go ahead people. Keep it up all winter. I`m sure that Fantastic Fredi
is laughing at you. Fredi for Manager of the Year 2013. Go Braves!

Amber Girl, I read your post. I am sure you know who you are dealing with. These guys are a bunch of know it all. If they were as smart as they say they are braves could get all their managers in Atlanta

183 wins in two seasons with a substandard payroll, and at least three ‘quick outs’ in the lineup when Mac plays hurt and the pitcher hits…
Can we please get an owner who wants to put a real winner on the field?

I guess promotions are not made anymore within the organization. It too bad but they must have thought nobody was qualified enough to fill the post.

@Dwight Thanks for info. Just trying to figure out who will be our opening day catcher. Maybe “pretty” boy Wren can catch.

Could it be that they wanted Fredi’s replacement close by?????

hey amber girl. i don’t exactly understand the question. you asked if he can catch. does that mean can he be our catcher? he’s probably a little old. he is the new manager for AAA gwinnett braves. also, you don’t have to call us all “mister.” our opening day catcher will be evan gattis, christian betancourt, or the “veteran” that they will acquire during the offseason as a backup plan.

dwight, are you calling me a know it all? i don’t really appreciate that.

@urban redneck Thanks fir info. I just wanted to know who are catcher will be opening day? I called you Mister out of respect. Mom told me to respect my elders.

Life is Lonely ! When you date much older or much younger people, you have probably had to navigate the age gap. Whenever it becomes painfully obvious that you two are from totally different generations, or have polar opposite outlooks on life. How do you hand the difference in age?

It is very common that many Young Women are attracted to 40 Plus Older Men; coz Older Men are usually more Stable and Mature. If you want to make your life more adventurous, I would encourage you to take a try on AgeGapMatch.com .This Is Where Things Start To Get Better. where you can meet plenty of classy, intelligent, and adventurous girls who like 40 Plus Older Mature Men. Date a Younger Woman and feel Young again. It’s worthy a try.

2AgeGapMatch.com. You are crazy if you think any thing is going on between urban redneck and me. I am trying to learn about Braves baseball that is all. I think he is married and I am not interested in men. So if you are referring to me just shut the h… up. Thank you.

Way before season’s end everyone knew we needed more offense and also needed to replace Chippper; yet the clock keeps ticking, soon it’ll be Christmas and what has Wren done so far? —Ross is a Red Sox and Schafer’s a Brave again.

Great! Just great!

As much as it sucks to lose Ross already, please remember that they haven’t even named the Cy Young or MVP winners – it’s still early. Following Thanksgiving, you’ll see the flurry of moves. Teams are still exchanging numbers with agents behind closed doors…just scares me that the Braves apparently have interest in both Torii Hunter and Nick Swisher. Here’s to hoping they both sign somewhere else quickly before Wren panics and throws a stupid contract at them both…

I’m surprised that Schureholtz didn’t give the job to his son. He already drafted him and then gave him a manager’s job in rookie ball when he couldn’t hit.

Well, I suppose you can’t go wrong with someone named Ready, huh?

Welcome to the Braves, Mr. Ready. Wishing you much success.

Fredi finished fourth in the manager of the year voting. That and making the post season will saddle us with his sorry ass for at least two more miserable years.

New GW manager RR was a pro’s pro when he played. Scrappy, hard worker who played a variety of positions…all of them well. I would almost guarantee he will be more engaged than FG and his solid career will generate respect from the guys. Good hire. I see the desire to bring guys “up” from within and wish it could happen all the time. Sometimes, it’s just not the best thing to do.
But hey…what do I know? It’s all conjecture on my part.

Braves Fans – you are going to love Ready. Great teacher and motivator. Very upbeat guy. Will have his players ready to play every day, which will translate to immediate benefits when they make it to the show. Congrats on a very good hire.
