Los Angeles Dodgers' Freddie Freeman fires agents who led offseason contract talks

After Freddie Freeman left the Atlanta Braves and eventually joined the Los Angeles Dodgers

There was shock within the industry because of Freeman's long history with the Braves.

According to multiple sources, Freeman has fired Excel Sports Management, the agency that represented him in his offseason negotiations

Close, the agent who handled Freeman's negotiations with the Braves and Dodgers, did not immediately respond to a request for comment

Freeman admitted that his relationship with his agent was "fluid," but he refused to confirm the firing in a statement

"It was an emotional weekend for me and my family in Atlanta," Freeman told 

The MLB Players Association sent an email Monday to agents on Freeman's behalf, asking them not to contact the player

After signing with the Dodgers last weekend, Freeman returned to Atlanta for the first time and was outwardly emotional

Crying intermittently from the time he met with reporters to the time he was given a standing ovation by Braves fans on Sunday Night Baseball
