ATLANTA — After putting together a roster that returned the Braves to the playoffs, general manager Frank Wren was rewarded with a two-year contract extension that keeps him in Atlanta through 2013. The Braves announced the deal Monday, an agreement that means Wren and new manager Fredi Gonzalez are signed for the next three years.

‘‘We feel like we’re on the right path,’’ Wren said. ‘‘We finally got back to the playoffs last year, and we want to take it a little father. I’m excited to be part of that.’’

Wren is entering his fourth season as general manager, promoted to the post after longtime GM John Schuerholz moved up to team president.
