The Atlanta Braves gave contract extensions to manager Fredi Gonzalez and general manager Frank Wren, the team announced Wednesday.

No contract terms were revealed. Gonzalez and Wren were entering the final year of their contracts.

Gonzalez took over as manager when Bobby Cox retired after the 2010 season. Under Gonzalez, the Braves have made the playoffs twice and won one National League East title. His career record in Atlanta is 279-207.

Gonzalez is just the Braves' second manager since the 1990 season and is entering his fourth season in 2014.

Wren has served as general manager since John Schuerholz was named team president in 2007. Schuerholz had been the GM since 1990.
