Garret Anderson Hires Scott Boras
Anderson was represented by Chris Arnold for most of his career, including April 2004 when he signed a four-year, $48 million contract extension with the Angels. Shortly after that signing, there were changes in Arnold’s agency and Anderson elected to go without an agent for the past few years.
Anderson’s situation changed this fall when the long-time Angel became a free agent for the first time in his 14-year career. The contract extension he signed in 2004 included a club option for 2009 at a $14 million salary. The Angels elected to buy out that option for $3 million, allowing Anderson to file for free agency.
