On To The Next One: James Loney
First baseman James Loney has made a change of representation, switching from Creative Artists Agency (CAA) to The Legacy Agency. Loney was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers and made his professional debut with the club in 2006. In 2012, he played for the Boston Red Sox and in 2013 enjoyed a successful season with the Tampa Bay Rays. Loney is now a free-agent, and The Legacy Agency will earn a commission based on the next team contract that he signs.
In December 2012, Loney signed a 1-year, $2 million contract with the Rays, which was a more than $4 million discount from the contract he signed with the Dodgers in January of that same year. Loney batted .299 with 13 home runs and strong defense, which will likely lead Loney to a larger payday this next go around.
A few months ago The Legacy Agency also picked up Chicago White Sox reliever Matt Lindstrom as a client. Lindstrom had been represented by The Sparta Group.
