Agency Notes: Victorino, Wright, Sanchez, ACES

It's been an unusually active day for agent-related news. Here's the latest from around the league:

  • Shane Victorino, who left ACES earlier today, informed his agents of his impending departure long before fellow client Melky Cabrera was suspended for PED use, according to WEEI.com's Rob Bradford (Twitter link).
  • ACES client David Wright won't be following Victorino out the door, tweets ESPN's Adam Rubin.
  • Left-hander Jonathan Sanchez left the Boras Corporation months ago and will now be represented by Jim McNamara of the McNamara Baseball Group, the agency informed MLBTR via email. Sanchez will hit free agency this offseason, though his struggles in 2012 will present McNamara with a challenge. McNamara, a former MLB player, worked with the Boras Corporation for approximately 15 years before leaving to open his own agency this past spring.
  • Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes that several people around baseball are wondering if Victorino's departure from ACES will be the first of many. The agency is under investigation by MLB following Cabrera's PED suspension and the ensuing web site coverup scandal.

I see Sanchez (Jonathan) being looked at hard by Duquette over the off season. Fits his mold to a “T” excellent upside and super low cost. Could possibly be another find of his that has blossomed perfectly and why not a SP his club could use going forward in 2013 until his better SP prospects are ready?

I was thinking the same thing. I’d like to give him a season to see if he could get back to his San Fran form.

I think if Shane Victorino was smart, I would look closely to The SF Giants as a 4th Outfielder. His Dodgers days are over.

He already said he has no interest in a 4th Of job as he was approached by the dodgers with the idea. He could start on several teams. But everyone knows what they will get, .250 15hrs 60 rbi and an inability to hit leadoff (and will throw a tantrum hitting anywhere lower then 5th). Shame for Shane but his time in Philly was worn out and I wish him the best wherever he goes.
