Several prominent young major leaguers changing agencies
A number of prominent young major leaguers are changing agencies due to the departures of two player representatives from Relativity Baseball to TLA Worldwide.
Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts, Orioles second baseman Jonathan Schoop, and Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray are among the players leaving for TLA, according to major-league sources.
The list of departures also includes Indians right-hander Cody Anderson, Twins right-hander Trevor May and Cardinals reliever Kevin Siegrist, plus Indians outfielder Rajai Davis, Marlins reliever Carter Capps, Phillies righty Jerad Eickhoff and Rockies catcher Tony Wolters, sources said.
A number of minor-league prospects also are following the two agents, Steve Veltman and Ed Cerulo, from Relativity to TLA, which previously was known as the Legacy Sports Group.
TLA already represents a number of top young players, including Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and outfielder George Springer, Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock and Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman.
Robert Murray of Baseball Essential first reported the move of Betts from Relativity to TLA.
