UPDATE: OK, maybe not. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, Nick Swisher has hired Dan Lozano as his new agent, not Scott Boras.

Oh well. We’re pretty sure Boras will find a way to get along just fine without him.

11:27 PM: Robinson Cano switched agents last week, going from Bobby Barad to Scott Boras, and now Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Boras has also lured one of his Yankees teammates away from his current representation.

Sherman quotes “two sources” as saying that Nick Swisher “is leaving his longtime agent Joe Bick to go with Boras.” Once that happens, Boras would represent four-ninths of the Yankees’ lineup with Cano, Swisher, Alex Rodriguez, and Mark Teixeira, plus setup man Rafael Soriano and backup outfielder Andruw Jones.

The timing of Cano’s agent switch seemed odd, because he’s under the Yankees’ control through 2013 anyway. Swisher is under team control through 2012, as he’ll earn $9 million this season and the Yankees have a $10.25 million option or $1 million buyout for 2012.

    As long as he realizes that he Nick Swisher and not Cano it’ll be fine. Otherwise, his days with the Yankees are numbered.

      Interesting dilemma. My guess is the Yankees obviously pick up his 2012 option. Then see whats available at the end of that season. If Swisher/Boras are expecting anywhere in the neighborhood of a Jason Werth type of deal from the Yankees when he hits FA. I think he will be sorely mistaken.

        I love him but Swisher is going to be 33 years right after the 2012 season, .. he’ll be lucky to keep getting Nick Swisher money at that point.

    Of course! Soon Boras will rep everyone. Who wouldn’t want to have him as their agent after what he pulled off this winter with Werth?? I totally get it. We have no one to blame but the stupid GMs who buy Boras’ BS. Rizzo – this means you.

    Do you have a Lexus dealer in town? Do you have a Kia dealer? If the quality of goods are better at Neiman-Marcus than Kmart, which do you pick?
    This is not a communist country, you can choose what to buy in your price range.
    And look, there’s a used car section for Damon and Manny. Low milage, good condition, sawdust in the transmission!

      “… Damon and Manny. Low milage, good condition, sawdust in the transmission!”

      With Damon I’m not so sure about the low mileage, .. might have had the odometer rolled back a bit but can he still gets you from point A to point B. With Manny, the sawdust is between his ears.

    So I guess with this new/latest update Swisher will be represented by the same agent that represents Pujols and Votto.
