Alex Bregman leaving Klutch Sports over planned sign-stealing documentary?
Alex Bregman is now seeking new representation, and there may be more to the story than meets the eye.
Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday that the Houston Astros star has parted ways with agent Brodie Scoffield, who negotiated the $100 million extension that Bregman signed with the team last year. Scoffield formerly ran Tidal Sports Group, which was acquired by Klutch Sports last month to serve as its baseball wing.
Jon Heyman of MLB Network adds that Uninterrupted, the media company founded by Klutch Sports star LeBron James, is producing a documentary about the Astros’ sign-stealing scandal. Heyman says that other players aren’t thrilled either and that it could be a clue about Bregman’s exit from Klutch.
This may be a clue why Bregman is switching agents. Old agency Klutch’s big client LeBron James’ Uninterrupted is planning a documentary series on Astros sign stealing scandal. Others players aren’t thrilled either but Bregman was 1 Astro repped by Klutchhttps://t.co/SkW6Ifn976

The two-time All-Star Bregman, who finished second in AL MVP voting last season, had taken on somewhat of a defiant tone about the Astros’ cheating scandal. While there may have been other factors that went into his decision to part ways with his agent, plans for an unflattering documentary about his team probably didn’t help matters.
