    Exclamation Kevin Maitan Could Be Declared a Free Agent

    If this happens, wow. I would think he'd command more than $4.25M this time.


    Jeff Passan‏ @JeffPassan
    Sources: MLB is investigating Atlanta's signing of top prospect Kevin Maitan. If improprieties are found, he could be declared a free agent.

    Would this be the first time something like this has happened? What I mean is, an international player who was previously drafted but then hit free agency because some shady organizational sh!t went down?

    I don't remember something like this happening to a guy who's of his stature. I do remember Miguel Sano had signed with, I want to say the Yankees?, and then something shady happened and that contract was void and he signed with the Twins. That seems to happen quite a bit early on in the careers of latin players with using fake names/birthdates/funneling money to family members/etc.

    So international free agents and college basketball might have a little bit in common?

    It's tricky. Sometimes things are legal even though they are wrong (think basically the entire Western banking industry, i.e.) and sometimes things are illegal even though they are not wrong per se, such as earning a living from your own talents. Comment more directed at recent news in re college basketball but applicable generally IMO.

    Crazy what could befall the Braves stacked system of prospects. A boost for the NL East rivals in the coming years!

    It would be bad for your team but probably good for your collection.
    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.
