Report: K-Rod agrees to switch to Boras

By Adam Rubin

Scott Boras has a new Mets client. The Mets' web site reports Francisco Rodriguez has switched to Boras from Paul Kinzer. Kinzer negotiated the deal with the Mets that will be worth four years, $51 million assuming the closer finishes 55 games this season.

Since this is K-Rod's last deal with the Mets, the impact may be minimal to the organization. The only issue that could arise is if the Mets try to trade K-Rod to one of the 10 teams on his no-trade list, and Boras has a difficult stance as far as securing an extension or some other additional compensation.
