Per a Tweet by Ken Rosenthal, Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado is leaving The Boras Corporation and joining Wasserman Media Group.
Arenado is coming off an All-Star season in 2015, in which he batted .287/.337/.575 with an NL-best 42 homers and an MLB-best 130 RBI. This comes in addition to his Gold Glove-caliber defense, for which he was awarded in the 2014 season and named a finalist for the 2015 season after boasting a .966 fielding percentage.
The 24-year-old will be arbitration eligible for the first time this winter as a Super Two player. A Super Two player comes from the group of players who have between two and three years service time, and at least 86 days service time from the previous year. These players go to arbitration four times, instead of the usual three, which means they make more many than the players who have between two and three years of service time. MLB Trade Rumors contributor Matt Swartz projects Arenado to earn a $6.6 million salary.
Arenado leaves super-agent Scott Boras to be repped by Joel Wolfe and Nick Chanock at Wasserman Media Group. It is worth noting that Wolfe is the agent for Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton, who signed a monstrous 13-year, $325 million extension last offseason.
