Free agent pitcher, Jason Hammel, has signed with ACES for his representation, where he will be represented by Seth and Sam Levinson. He was previously represented by Octagon.
After being drafted by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the 10th round of the 2002 amateur draft, Hammel made his debut on April 11, 2006. He has also played for the Colorado Rockies, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs (twice), and Oakland Athletics. He has been with the Cubs since 2014, and although left off the postseason roster, won his first World Series in 2016.
After the Cubs declined his option for the 2017 season, he became a free agent. There have been many rumors as to which team would sign the 34-year old starter with a five pitch mix.
ACES (Athletes’ Careers Enhanced and Secured) was founded by the Levinson brothers and has represented professional baseball players in all phases of their careers for more than 25 years. The Levinson brothers have been named to Forbes’ list of “The World’s Most Powerful Agents,” having negotiated over $3 billion in multi-year, arbitration and free agent contracts.
