Braves penalized for int'l signing violations

Commissioner Rob Manfred issued the following statement today: “My office has completed a thorough investigation into violations of Major League Rules by the Atlanta Braves. The Braves cooperated throughout the investigation, which was conducted by MLB’s Department of Investigations. The senior Baseball Operations officials responsible for the misconduct are no longer employed by the Braves.

The bucket of Gatorade doused Peoria Javelinas manager Luis Salazar on Saturday with the usual mixture of cold, wet, sticky goo. His club had just defeated the Mesa Solar Sox, 8-2, at Scottsdale Stadium to win this year’s Arizona Fall League championship. This was a happy moment for the 61-year-old native of Venezuela who has endured more than enough grief in recent years.
