Top MLB freelance agent Carlos Correa moves agency, hires Scott Boras

The persistent owner lockout means that Carlos Correa, the top free-to-play player on the market this season, has yet to sign a team. However, Correa could switch agents, and that’s exactly what he did.

As Mark Berman reports, Correa has hired Scott Boras, perhaps the top agent in all of sports, to represent him ahead of his next contract. He was previously represented by William Morris Endeavor (WME). Correa on Tuesday issued the following statement about its decision:

“I have decided to hire Boras Corporation to represent me moving forward. Boras Corporation offers the highest level of baseball expertise and proven experience.”

As The Athletic’s Evan Drellich recently reportedWME agents may be about to lose their MLBPA certification as the company recently purchased 10 minor league franchises. Likely, this played a role in Correa’s decision.

Correa, 27, is a two-time All-Star, and he will begin a 2021 campaign with the Astros in which he comes fifth in the AL MVP poll. Importantly, he was also able to stay healthy for the most part, which has not been the case during his career. Correa is an elite pack of high tier defense skills on short range and top tier production at disc (127 OPS + for his career with strong power numbers). With the market short, Correa’s next contract is estimated to be worth more than $300 million. Going into winter, our RJ Anderson ranked Correa as top free agent of class 2021-22.

As for Boras, he has long been one of the most powerful figures of all MLB. His current client list includes the likes of Bryce Harper, Max Scherzer, Anthony Rendon, Corey Seager and Gerrit Cole – all of whom have signed major free agency deals in the past. In addition, Boras also represents Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman, longtime Correa teammates in Houston.

Whenever the owner lockout ends and the tournament resumes, Correa is expected to be aggressively hunted by several teams — the Cubs, the Yankees, and perhaps the Braves among them.
