After seven seasons with the Houston Astros, where he contributed significantly to three World Series appearences with the team, All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa is a free agent.

Correa changed agents and signed with Scott Boras’ company in the wake of his free agency, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported Tuesday night.

Mark Berman, Sports Director at Fox 26 in Houston, also reported that Correa has employed Scott Boras, perhaps the sport’s foremost agent, to represent him before he signs his next contract. Boras has recently negotiated premium contracts for Bryce Harper, Max Sherzer, and Gerrit Cole, among others.

Correa on Tuesday issued the following statement regarding his decision:

“I have made the decision to hire Boras Corporation to represent me moving forward. Boras Corporation offers the highest level of baseball expertise and proven experience.”

Carlos Correa had one of the best seasons of his career. He finished 5th in the AL MVP voting, was healthy all year, and has a unique combination of offensive and defensive skills. He should command a premium in the marketplace. The Chicago Cubs and New York Yankees should be likely suitors.

Correa had earlier been represented by the William Morris Endeavor (WME). As Evan Drellich of The Athletic reported recently, WME agents may lose MLBPA certification because of the recent purchase of 10 minor league franchises.
