According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Braves are expected to lose rights to prospect Kevin Maitan as punishment for international signing violations.

It's believed that the Braves surrendered their rights to additional international signings, as well. Fines and restrictions on future spending could also be included. Official word on punishment could come down as soon as Tuesday. The 17-year-old Maitan received a $4.25 million bonus as the top prospect in the 2016 international class. He batted .241/.290/.340 with two homers and 18 RBI over 42 games in rookie ball this season, but he's still very young with a lot of room to grow.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com hears from a source that the Marlins and Giants have had "deeper discussions" on a possible Giancarlo Stanton trade.

The source believes that the Giants are the favorites to land Stanton, though the Cardinals are also in the mix. Craig Mish of SiriusXM reported Monday that there was talk of packaging Stanton with Dee Gordon for second baseman Joe Panik and prospects Tyler Beede and Chris Shaw, but it's unclear if such a proposal is seriously being entertained by Miami. One thing we do know is that Stanton would likely be amenable to a trade to San Francisco. He has the power in this situation due to his full no-trade clause.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, MLB and MLBPA officials have "reached compromise" that addresses union concerns on the "pull back" provision for Nippon Professional Baseball clubs in the posting system.

One of the issues has been that NPB clubs have been able to pull back a player if a contract doesn't provide enough compensation in return for a move to MLB. There's apparently been some resolution on the matter, though the specifics aren't yet clear. It remains to be seen whether NPB teams will approve whatever MLB and the MLBPA hammered out, but we should know more soon. There's another 8 p.m. ET deadline on Tuesday. Whether Shohei Otani makes the jump this offseason largely hinges on progress in the posting system.

ESPN's Buster Olney writes that lefty reliever Mike Minor is expected to be among the first free agents to sign.

Olney cites Minor's strong position in the market as one of the most-coveted relievers, with "aggressive interest from a high volume of teams." After missing back-to-back seasons due to injury, Minor thrived with a move to the bullpen this season with a 2.55 ERA and 88/22 K/BB ratio over 77 2/3 innings. He also notched six saves for the Royals. The Mets are among the teams who have shown interest thus far.

Ravin was designated for assignment earlier Monday but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. He has posted a 5.05 ERA but has struck out 44 over 35 2/3 innings in the majors.
