Free agent lefty Jose Mijares has switched agents and is now represented by agent Eric Goldschmidt, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). Mijares had previously been represented by Relativity Baseball (formerly called SFX).
The 29-year-old Mijares elected free agency after being outrighted to Triple-A by the Giants in November, He had been projected to earn $2.1MM in arbitration, but the Giants cut him in favor of giving Javier Lopez a three-year, $13MM extension. Mijares posted a 4.22 ERA with 9.9 K/9, 3.7 BB/9 and a 34.6 percent ground-ball rate in 2013. His typically excellent splits against left-handed batters regressed this past season, as they batted .276/.343/.367 against Mijares.
As can be seen in MLBTR's Agency Database, Goldschmidt also represents clients such as Alberto Callaspo, Ramon Hernandez, Juan Rivera and Alex Gonzalez.
