Red Sox found in violation of international signing system

The Boston Red Sox have been found in violation of the sport's international signing system, and as a result, the team is barred from signing any international amateur players during the 2016-17 signing period, according to sources.

Because of the violations, the contracts of players involved in the situation have been voided, including outfielders Simon Muzziotti and Albert Guaimaro, pitcher Cesar Gonzalez, and infielder Antonio Pinero.

The players who've had their contracts voided can be scouted by all other teams at a workout on July 5 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
