Alex Bregman Reportedly Leaves Klutch Due To LeBron's Astros Doc
The involvement of LeBron James' media platform, Uninterrupted, in a new docuseries on the Astros' sign-stealing scandal was "perhaps not the only reason" Astros 3B Alex Bregman left Tidal Sports Group's Brodie Scoffield, whose company last month became the baseball arm of James' agency, Klutch Sports, but it was an "overriding factor -- at the very least, the last straw," according to sources cited by Ken Rosenthal of THE ATHLETIC. Uninterrupted, part of James' "budding media empire, is a separate entity from Klutch." However, a source said that Bregman "felt angry and betrayed Scoffield put him in a position in which a fellow Klutch client ... would help develop a series focusing on the darkest moment of his career." Sources said that Bregman's "dissatisfaction with Scoffield's guidance during the fallout might have been one factor in his decision to pursue new representation." But team officials and others "also were advising him at that time." Bregman also "might have been upset that Scoffield aligned with Klutch less than two years after leaving TLA Worldwide, which later became GSE Worldwide, to form his own company" (THEATHLETIC.com, 5/19).
