The Wasserman agency announced Friday that it has purchased Jet Sports Management and hired Jet founder and president B.B. Abbott as an executive vice president. Today’s press release indicates that agents Andrew Lowenthal, Al Goetz, Hank Sargent, Alex Ott, Tyler Pastornicky and Blaise Salter are all joining the Wasserman staff immediately as well.
Wasserman already stood as one of the largest agencies in the business, and their acquisition of Jet furthers that position. Among the dozens of clients joining the Wasserman roster are the likes of Byron Buxton, Zack Wheeler, Matt Olson, Charlie Morton, Clay Holmes, Corey Kluber, Chris Sale, Logan Gilbert, Gavin Lux and Mike Minor.
The changes in representation will be reflected in MLBTR’s Agency Database, which contains information on the hundreds of big leaguers who’ve appeared in the Majors over the past several seasons. We do our best to keep those records up to date, but changes in representation happen regularly.
