The Legacy Agency was recently ranked one of the top-five MLB sports agencies in 2014, according to research by Forbes.com. TLA represents the likes of OF Carl Crawford (Los Angeles Dodgers), P Edwin Jackson (Chicago Cubs) and 2B Rickie Weeks (Milwaukee Brewers).
The standout athlete representation and marketing firm also recently inked top Houston Astros prospect, Carlos Correa. The 20-year-old Correa was previously represented by the Kinzer Management Group.
“Carlos is one of the brightest new faces in baseball and we are excited to be able to represent him in all aspects of his,” said TLA sports agent, Greg Genske. “He has both the ability on the field and the personality off the field to be one of MLB’s true crossover multicultural stars in the coming years, and we are looking forward to helping him in every way possible.”
Added Correa: “After the expiration of the agreement with my previous representation, I explored a number of opportunities before concluding that Greg and TLA were the best fit for me. I look forward to working with them as I continue my career. The rehabilitation of my broken fibula is proceeding as expected and I look forward to being at full strength in the very near future.”
Correa finished the 2014 campaign with Lancaster of the Single A California League where he finished with a .325 batting average. A former No. 1 overall draft pick of the Astros in the 2012 MLB Draft, Correa is expected to move up to AA to begin next season, according to TLA.
