Red Sox first baseman Mitch Moreland has switched agencies and hired Paragon Sports as his representation, MLBTR’s Steve Adams reports. MLBTR has made note of the change in our Agency Database.

The soon-to-be 35-year-old Moreland is entering his fourth season with the Red Sox, who have signed him to three short-term contracts dating back to the 2016 offseason. He most recently inked a one-year, $3MM deal with the team back in January. That pact includes a $3MM option or a $500K buyout for 2021, so Moreland could stick on their roster beyond this season.

Since his career started in 2010, Moreland has consistently offered league-average production on offense, having batted .251/.319/.444 (99 wRC+) with 166 home runs in 4,132 plate appearances. Although injuries limited Moreland to 91 games and 335 PA in 2019, it was nonetheless one of his most productive and powerful seasons. He slashed .252/.328/.507 (112 wRC+) with 19 homers and a personal-best .255 ISO, which betters his lifetime mark of .192 by 63 points.
