John Hart, the Atlanta Braves' president of baseball operations, did not play a role in numerous rules violations that forced two club officials to resign in early October, a source told ESPN. Major League Baseball is nearing the end of an investigation into the violations that prompted general manager John Coppolella and international scouting director Gordon Blakeley to resign after the regular season. The Braves broke MLB rules related to both the domestic amateur draft and the international signing market, the source confirmed. The Braves are subject to a mix of sanctions that could include a fine, loss of picks in the June first-year draft and the loss of international pool space. Commissioner Rob Manfred's office is expected to announce its findings in November after the completion of the World Series.
