Major League Baseball is expected to hammer the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday for circumventing rules governing the signing of global amateurs, declaring 12 minor league players, including vaunted prospect Kevin Maitan, free agents as part of sweeping penalties against the organization, sources familiar with the situation told Yahoo Sports.
In an unprecedented punishment, the Major League Baseball also said it would dock the Braves a third-round pick in next year's amateur draft, while barring the team from signing any global player for more than US$10,000 in the 2019-2020 window.
The Dodgers, Angels and other teams have exceeded their bonus pools for signing global amateurs at various times, well aware that the result would be a severe reduction on what they could offer worldwide amateurs for the subsequent two years.

Manfred said MLB's investigation determined the Braves funneled extra signing bonus money to five players in 2015-16 by giving the funds first to another player considered a foreign professional under baseball's rules and having the money redistributed to the other five.
