Free agent outfielder Alex Rios hires Scott Boras as his agent


CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that free agent outfielder Alex Rios has hired Scott Boras as his agent.

Rios became a free agent for the first time in his career yesterday after the Rangers declined his $13.5 million club option for 2015. He was previously represented by the Kinzer Management Group.

Rios turns 34 in February and batted .280 with just four home runs and a .709 OPS across 131 games this past season. Boras will attempt to find him a starting job and a place to reestablish his value.
