Royals owner David Glass has denied the Atlanta Braves permission to interview general manager Dayton Moore for a job running their baseball operations, according to an ESPN report on Friday that cited anonymous baseball sources.

The Braves’ general manager job has been open since Oct. 2, when John Coppolella resigned in the midst of a Major League Baseball probe into the organization’s conduct in the international player market. The results of the investigation are not expected to be made public until after the World Series.
