"With respect to individual discipline, former Braves General Manager John Coppolella will be placed on the permanently ineligible list, effective immediately", Manfred's statement read.
ATLANTA (AP) - Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred hit the Atlanta Braves with heavy sanctions, including the loss of 13 players, on Tuesday for rules violations committed by the team in the global player market.
Coppolella lasted only two seasons as Atlanta's GM before being forced to resign last month after Major League Baseball announced its investigation.
Additionally, the Braves will be prohibited from signing any worldwide player for more than $10,000 during the 2019-20 signing period and their global signing bonus pool for the 2020-21 signing period will be reduced by 50 percent. None will be eligible to re-sign with the Braves.
Of the 13 players declared free agents, nine were from the 2016-17 signing period and three were from the 2017-18 period - including prized 17-year-old Venezuelan prospect Kevin Maitan.
The Braves also evaded the limits in 2016 and 2017 by paying "inflated bonuses" to player agents for lesser prospects in exchange for desired prospects signing at a lower amount.
The Braves were found to have offered impermissible benefits to draft picks as well in order to circumvent their limited signing bonus pool. Lo and behold, MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has since released an official statement while the Braves will pay a hefty price for such infractions.
