On To The Next One: Matt Lindstrom
Chicago White Sox reliever Matt Lindstrom is currently in the middle of a 1-year, $2.8 million contract he signed in January of this year. There is a $4 million option for 2014, which includes a buyout if the White Sox choose to not pick up the option. However, all signs seem to indicate that the White Sox will keep Lindstrom on their roster for the 2014 season, which would mean that the agency that negotiated Lindstrom’s current deal would earn the commission on his 2014 salary. That agency is The Sparta Group. It is also now considered Lindstrom’s former agency.
Lindstrom has signed with Greg Genske of The Legacy Agency, and Genske will negotiate Lindstrom’s future Major League Baseball team contracts. Other baseball players represented by Genske and The Legacy Agency include Johan Santana, Joe Saunders, Rickie Weeks and Vernon Wells.
The Sparta Group represents Nate McLouth and many former prominent MLB players including Troy Glaus, Mike Cameron, Pokey Reese and Jerry Dipoto.
