Report: Gio Gonzalez fires Scott Boras, likely to opt out of Yankees contract

Gio Gonzalez Max Scherzer

Gio Gonzalez is making some changes, and it appears he’ll soon be on the market once again.

According to Mark Feinsand of, Gonzalez has fired agent Scott Boras. ESPN’s Jeff Passan adds that Gonzalez is considered likely to exercise his opt-out clause in his deal with the New York Yankees and become a free agent.

Despite the injuries the Yankees have suffered, Gonzalez still hasn’t cracked the rotation, so it makes sense for him to take the opportunity to move somewhere else. Now that the season has started and teams are realizing they need to fortify their rotations, he may draw wider interest than he did in the offseason. The firing of Boras is also interesting, as it hints at Gonzalez’s dissatisfaction with how his free agency was handled.
