Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has switched his representation and is now a client of Roc Nation Sports, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports (Twitter link). Juan Perez will serve as Aybar’s agent, Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal reports (via Twitter). Aybar had previously been represented by Relativity Baseball.
Aybar is halfway through a four-year, $35MM contract he signed with the Halos in April 2012, and he’s owed $8.5MM in each of the next two seasons. The extension kept the 31-year-old off the open market, as he was scheduled to hit free agency following the 2012 campaign. Aybar has a .277/.318/.385 slash line over 4161 career plate appearances and has flashed a generally above-average glove at short, winning a Gold Glove in 2011.
