Freddie Freeman’s Agent Never Relayed Braves Offer

Casey Close never told Freddie Freeman about the Braves final offer" - Fresh details emerge about Freddie Freeman firing his agent after returning from his weekend series against Braves

Freddie Freeman fired his former agent, Casey Close, yesterday. Freeman told friends he was motivated to make the decision out of anger for how Close handled his off-season negotiations with the Atlanta Braves.

Close represented Freeman on behalf of the company Excel Sports Management, with which Freeman has now cut all ties.


Freeman played 12 seasons with the Braves prior to signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers in March. MLB analysts speculated that Braves General Manager Alex Anthopoulos refused to offer Freeman a competitive extension. Freeman signed a six-year, $162 million deal with the Dodgers.

Freeman returned to Atlanta for the first time this season to face the Braves over the weekend.

“Last weekend in Atlanta was a very emotional time for me and my family,” Freeman said on Tuesday. “I am working through some issues with my longtime agents at Excel. My representation remains a fluid situation and I will update if needed.”
Details have now emerged giving context to Freeman's conflict with Casey Close. According to analyst Doug Gottlieb, Close never told Freeman about the Braves' final offer this off-season. Once Freeman became aware of this, he fired Close.

Casey Close never told Freddie Freeman about the Braves final offer, that is why Freeman fired him. He found out in Atlanta this weekend. It isn’t that rare to have happen in MLB, but it happened - Close knew Freddie would have taken the ATL deal

Gottlieb mentioned that this is not an unusual thing to happen between MLB players and their agents. However, in a situation as touchy as Freeman's relationship with the Braves, Close's decision was unquestionably imprudent.

Freeman's tenure with the Los Angeles Dodgers has been one of distinction. He's batting .306 this season.

It became all too clear last weekend that Freeman's emotional connection to the Atlanta Braves was still very much alive. The first baseman broke down in tears during multiple press conferences while recounting his time with the organization.

Probably why he is so bothered by the Braves re-union last weekend. He thought he would spend his whole career with the Braves and ended up like Will Smith and his dad

Ive never seen no sh*t like this. Im sure he wouldve took the deal because it was close to what the dodgers offered. sh*t wouldve set off the olson deal to the yankees and we wouldn't of had Gleyber or Rizzo and possibly this great start. Who knows but the domino affect of this is nuts when you think about it

His agent did him dirty. He wanted to stay in atl but felt lowballed.

His atl deal would've been the same or more with the LA tax

Wow!!! This some crazy a*s sh*t.

Man this seems like something missing here. So Freedie Freeman ain't speak with the Braves at all? Just his agent? With a deal this important?

That sh*t hard for me to believe

As a player, you have to be involved more with the process. There’s no way that should happen. He can blame his agent all he wants, be he dropped the ball. Same thing with Noel passing up 70 million because Paul told him not to sign.

Agent about to lose his license and all his clients because of this. As a player agent, client representation is built upon trust and the agent broke that by withholding that information for his own financial benefit. Malpractice at it's finest

One agent presents a contract offer and advises his client not to take the deal, a*suming that a better deal is coming at some point.

Another agent does not present a contract offer at all.

How are these two things similar...

I never understood why a player wouldn't sit in on the meetings between the agent and the organization

My problem again is that he was offered 50 million less by the braves I hear the “he wanted to be there talk” but know you worth so what you didn’t hear the final offer was anything close to what the dodgers offered? If not his agent did his job and got him the best money possible

No in court he would lose the dodgers offered 50 million more than the braves what agent in his right mind would let his client walk away from that? That would be his last negotiaton
