Reports say Atlanta Braves pick Fredi Gonzalez as manager
Cox is expected to speak to the media a final time as manager Wednesday, after which the team reportedly will announce Gonzalez as his replacement.
Gonzalez was third-base coach on Cox's staff from 2003-06. He was hired by the Marlins in 2007 and went 276-279 during his 3 1/2 years as manager before being fired in June. Gonzalez, whose family residence remained in Atlanta during his tenure with the Marlins, immediately emerged as a leading candidate to as Cox's successor.
The Braves were eliminated by the San Francisco Giants in their National League division series Monday.
