In July 2011, outfielder Colby Rasmus was traded from the St. Louis Cardinals to the Toronto Blue Jays. Since then, Rasmus has signed a couple of one year deals: a $2.7 million contract in January 2012 and a $4.675 million contract in January of this year. He was represented by Beverly Hills Sports Council for both of those contract negotiations. According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca, Rasmus has new representation for future contract talks.
Going forward, Rasmus will be represented by Casey Close of Excel Sports Management. But Rasmus has nothing bad to say about Beverly Hills Sports Council (at least not publicly). “Beverly Hills was good to me, didn’t do anything wrong or anything like that,” Rasmus said to Nicholson-Smith. “I just decided to go with Excel.”
Excel Sports Management’s baseball division also represents Freddie Freeman, Dexter Fowler, Zack Grienke and Jason Heyward, amongst many others.
