Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman has parted ways with agent Brodie Scoffield of Klutch Sports, according to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. An upcoming documentary based on the Astros sign-stealing scandal produced by LeBron James’ media company, UNINTERRUPTED, is speculated for Bregman’s reasoning.
Uninterrupted is a separate investment of Klutch Sports, operated by James and longtime friend Maverick Carter.
During his time with Scoffield, Bregman secured a six-year $100 contract extension prior to the start of the 2019 MLB season. While helping the Astros reach the World Series where they fell in seven to the Washington Nationals, Bregman finished top-five for the American League MVP honors hitting .296 with 41 homers, 112 RBI, 122 runs and a 1.015 OPS.

In November, an article published by The Athletic involved allegations that the Astros used sign-stealing tactics en route to their World Series title in 2017.
Although no players were punished, the MLB penalized the Astros $5 million, docked their first- and second-round draft picks in 2020 and 2021 and suspended manager Jeff Luhnow and general manager A.J. Hinch — who were both fired by the team.
