Free agent SS Carlos Correa has hired agent Scott Boras, according to Jeff Passan of With "transactions frozen and Correa still without a team," the 27-year-old player joins Boras after entering this winter on the "top of most free-agent boards." Before hiring Boras, Correa was represented by WME, whose parent company, Endeavor, purchased nine minor league teams in December via its Diamond Baseball Holdings. The MLBPA recently sent a letter to the company with "possible discipline on the table for running afoul of agent regulations that prohibit the ownership of minor league teams." The "murkiness" with WME was the "backdrop against which Boras recruited Correa" (, 1/18). In Houston, Chandler Rome notes Correa was previously represented by Jon Rosen of WME. Meanwhile, Boras negotiated SS Corey Seager’s 10-year, $325M deal with the Rangers in November. Seager entered the winter as the "second-best available free-agent shortstop," while Correa "is the first" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/19).
