MLB To Meet With Braves Players On Tuesday
Major League Baseball has informed several Braves prospects that they will meet with them on Tuesday afternoon, according to multiple sources. The players will either meet with league officials in person in the Dominican Republic or be informed of what’s happening by phone.
Baseball America was not able to confirm every player contacted to meet with MLB, but the players contacted appear to include nearly all of the team’s top international signings from 2016, the year the Braves went over their international bonus pool.
MLB has been investigating the Braves’ international signings, with the team expecting to lose multiple players they signed in recent years. While few specifics have come out regarding what rules MLB has determined the Braves violated and what sanctions the team will face, given that MLB has called a meeting with the players for tomorrow, those details should emerge soon.
