Still on the free-agent market with time running out before spring training, infielder Felipe Lopez has fired his agent, Scott Boras, according to ESPN.com. Lopez has joined up with the Beverly Hills Sports Council.
Lopez reportedly was frustrated about not having signed despite coming off a season in which he hit .310 with nine homers, 57 RBIs, 88 runs and a .383 on-base percentage for the Diamondbacks and Brewers.
Lopez has been linked to the Cardinals, who aren’t set at third base. His new agency counts St. Louis first baseman Albert Pujols among its clients.
