Daily Hammer Podcast: John Coppolella reinstated by MLB

The former Braves GM is able to work in baseball once again.

MLB: General Managers Meetings Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Monday started off with quite the surprise for many Braves fans and many in general around Major League Baseball. Former Braves GM John Coppolella was reinstated from a lifetime ban, a punishment received for not cooperating with MLB’s investigation into the Braves back in 2017. At the time, the lifetime ban and overall penalties placed on the Braves were eye-opening. Fortunately, the franchise was able to overcome the penalties in time, and now Coppolella can return to work in baseball in some capacity if a franchise where to hire him.

Shawn Coleman looks at this and other Braves news:

  • Coppy’s reinstatement puts closure on 2017’s scandal
  • Coppolella may still find difficulty finding a position in baseball
  • Luke Jackson Signs with the Giants
  • Carols Correa in Talks with the Twins
  • Arbitration Figures exchanged on Friday
