Major League Baseball is about to bring the hammer down on the Atlanta Braves after their international signing scandal. As a result of the league's investigation, Atlanta is reportedly expected to lose 12 prospects - including highly regarded shortstop Kevin Maitan - to free agency, will be prohibited from signing a 14-year-old shortstop once he's eligible in 2019, and will lose a third-round draft pick in 2018 as a result of draft-related infractions, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.
Major League Baseball is reportedly set to declare highly regarded Atlanta Braves prospect Kevin Maitan a free agent as part of the punishments expected to be levied against them for violating international signing rules, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that full details of the Braves' punishments are expected to be announced Tuesday. Maitan, 17, was signed by the Braves in July of 2016 for a $4.25-million bonus.
The Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes appear to be tightening up. A source told Mark Feinsand of MLB.com the San Francisco Giants are emerging as favorites to acquire the reigning National League MVP, adding that they've also been engaged in "deeper discussions" about a trade with the Miami Marlins. It doesn't appear a deal is imminent, however, as Feinsand also reports that the St. Louis Cardinals may "still be a factor" in these discussions.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
