MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

According to Mark Bowman of MLB.com the investigation by MLB into the Atlanta Braves may be soon over and one of the final pieces is the interview of John Hart this week.

Hart took over the interim GM position when ex-GM John Coppolella resigned due to an MLB investigation into possible Braves IFA infractions. Hart seemingly was one of the closest people to Coppolella in the front office, although recent reports have made it apparent they were not as close as it seemed.

In an earlier tweet Bowman stated that it is likely the result of MLB’s investigation will come to light after the conclusion of the World Series. Any possible penalties would also be handed down by MLB at that time.
