James Loney has changed agencies and will now be represented by agents Brian Peters and Scott Parker of the Legacy Agency, according to Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal (on Twitter). Loney had previously been represented by CAA Sports.
The 29-year-old Loney enjoyed a rebound campaign with the Rays, slashing .299/.348/.430 with 13 homers and his typically excellent defense at first base. Loney signed just a one-year, $2MM contract with Tampa this past offseason and will surely enjoy a considerably larger payday on his next contract.
The Legacy Agency represents a number of high-profile Major League clients including CC Sabathia, Carl Crawford, Aaron Hill, Francisco Liriano and Martin Prado, as can be seen in MLBTR's Agency Database, which contains info on nearly 2,000 Major League and Minor League players.
