Francisco Rodriguez Hires Scott Boras

Francisco Rodriguez has changed agents. MLB.com's Adam Berry and Anthony DiComo report that the Mets' closer has signed on with Scott Boras after having been represented by Paul Kinzer of Wasserman Media Group.

Rodriguez, 29, is scheduled to become a free agent after the season as long as his $17.5MM option for 2012 does not vest. He needs to finish 55 games for the option to kick in, and right now he's at 34 and on pace for 62. K-Rod's name has popped up in trade rumors all year and that figures to continue this month, so the option could become moot if he's dealt to a team that would use him as a setup man.

Yesterday we learned that K-Rod and Boras met in Los Angeles earlier this week. Boras has also been trying to snag Jose Reyes, another impending free agent. Check out our Agency Database for a list of Boras and WMG clients.
