Atlanta general manager, permanently expelled for ‘international contract expedient’, discipline lifted… “Reflection Enough”

Reporter Seo Jang-won = ESPN reported on the 10th (Korean time) that former Atlanta Braves general manager John Coppoella, who had been permanently expelled for committing an expedient in the course of an international amateur contract, had his disciplinary action lifted.

It was revealed that Coporella violated the deposit limit rules and signed double contracts in the process of contracting with international amateur players from 2015 to 2017 while he was in Atlanta. Because of this, he was permanently expelled from the Major League (MLB) Secretariat.

Bae Ji-hwan (Pittsburgh Pirates) was included among the players Atlanta signed at the time of the problem, and Bae Ji-hwan, whose contract was eventually invalidated, signed a contract with Pittsburgh and is still active. 안전놀이터

Corporella, who had been kicked out of the industry just like that, got a chance to come back to baseball when his recent suspension was lifted.

ESPN quoted a source as saying, “After Coporella applied for reinstatement, MLB officials determined that he had made a real effort to improve himself.”

A spokesperson for the MLB Secretariat also told The Athletic that it “considered Coporella’s more than five years on the ineligible list, the remorse he has expressed, and other actions he has taken on the matter.”

Meanwhile, Corporella accomplished a lot during his tenure as Atlanta’s general manager.

He brought infielder Dansby Swanson and pitcher Max Fried in trades, and helped strengthen his power by signing Ronald Acuña Jr. to a contract. Using this as a stepping stone, Atlanta achieved the World Series championship in the last 2021 season.

Meanwhile, it is known that Corporella is currently working for a residential rental company in South Carolina, USA. Atlanta’s Alex Ansopoulos has taken over as general manager after Coporella’s resignation.
