Alex Bregman Ditches Klutch Sports With Astros’ Doc Looming

March 19, 2019 was a good day for Alex Bregman and his then-agent, Brodie Scoffield. The third baseman became one of five (now six) players at his position with $100 million cumulative contracts.

That same day, he announced that he was brought on board to be a brand ambassador for Adidas. Bregman was blossoming into a star, and Brodie Scoffield was seeing that he was paid accordingly.

But a little over a year after that lucrative day, reports say, Bregman has decided to part ways with Scoffield.

Bregman, along with fellow MLB players Marcus Stroman, Kevin Gausman and Keston Hiura, were a part of the Tidal Sports Group under Scoffield (via MLB Trade Rumors). An impressive client list in its own right, Scoffield's roster merged with an arguably more impressive roster after Tidal was purchased by Klutch Sports. Klutch is the home to super agent Rich Paul and his many clients who include LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Ben Simmons and several other NBA stars.

$100 million, a merge with one of the powerhouses among sports agencies... what's not to like?

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that LeBron, who is clearly the biggest name on the Klutch roster and perhaps on any agency's roster, owns the production company Uninterrupted. Why should that matter? Because Uninterrupted is producing a documentary on Bregman's Houston Astros and the scandal that rocked the baseball universe over the past year (via Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle).

There has not yet been much speculation as to who may be in the running to become Bregman's new agent. Teammate Jose Altuve, along with several of the league's biggest stars, are a part of Scott Boras' extensive roster. Teammate Carlos Correa is part of the William Morris agency under Endeavor Group Holdings, while Michael Brantley and George Springer both belong to Excel Sports Management.
