Ronald Acuña Jr. has changed agents, hiring Magnus Sports, a source tells @TheAthletic. His brothers, Luisangel, 20, the Rangers’ No. 7 prospect per @MLBPipeline; and Bryan, 17, a Twins prospect, are also joining Magnus, as is his cousin Maikel García, the Royals’ No. 5 prospect.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) November 20, 2022
Acuña was represented by Peter E. Greenberg who negotiated his eight-year, $100 million extension with the Atlanta Braves in 2019. Peter E. Greenberg and Associates was acquired by Rep 1 Baseball in February of 2020.
Acuña will join a group of players including Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Luis Robert and teammate Raisel Iglesias who are all represented by Magnus Sports according to MLB Trade Rumors’ Agency Database.
Acuña’s deal with the Braves also includes a pair of club options that bring the total value to $124 million. It has long been regarded as an extremely team-friendly pact. If Atlanta exercises both options, Acuña wouldn’t become a free agent until after the 2029 season.
