Oakland Athletics second baseman Jemile Weeks has switched representation, going from Williams & Connolly (Washington D.C.-based law firm) to Casey Close of Excel Sports Management.
Weeks was a Williams & Connolly client when he was selected by the A’s with the 12th overall pick in the 2008 MLB Draft. He played his college ball at the University of Miami.
Rickie Weeks, Jemile’s older brother, was also once represented by Williams & Connolly. The elder Weeks switched to Greg Genske of newly created The Legacy Agency (aka TLA). I wonder why the brothers have decided to choose different agents and whether they will remain with different agencies for the remainder of their careers.
