Sources: Royals’ Kendrys Morales leaves Scott Boras, now repped by Wasserman

Kansas City Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales has left agent Scott Boras, according to multiple league sources.

Morales, 32, is now represented by Wasserman Media Group, sources said.

In 2014, Morales signed after the June draft and played in only 98 games where he hit .218 with only eight home runs and 42 RBI and it left many wondering if his best days were behind him. That, however, has not been the case.

After a shortened, sub-par 2014 season, Morales has had a fantastic season with the Royals, hitting .291 with 22 home runs and 106 RBI and figures to be in consideration for comeback player of the year.

Morales was one of the best value signings this past offseason. He has more than outplayed his two-year, $17 million deal and figures to land a big payday in 2016 if he continues his stellar play and if he decides not to pick up his end of a mutual option with the Royals.

This is also Wasserman’s second big move in the last couple weeks, as they added Chicago White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija, as Liz Mullen of the SportsBusinessJournal first reported.
