Being naughty when it comes to international signings can come back to bite you, hard.

Coppolella gets banned for life. Former Braves Special Assistant Gordon Blakeley, the team's international scouting chief, was suspended from performing services for any team for one year.

Quote:
MLB also declared nine Braves players to be free agents. Most notable among them is Kevin Maitan, an infielder from Venezuela who signed for $4.25 million in 2016. Other "high-value" players the Braves will lose include Juan Contreras, Yefri del Rosario, Abrahan Gutierrez, Juan Carlos Negret, Yenci Pena, Yunior Severino, Livan Soto and Guillermo Zuniga.

Additionally, the Braves will be prohibited from signing any international player for more than $10,000 during the 2019-20 signing period and their international signing bonus pool for the 2020-21 signing period will be reduced by 50 percent.
