Top 10 MLB Player Agencies

A quick breakdown of the 10 biggest agencies representing MLB players.

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Although it may seem like it at times, Scott Boras does not represent every MLB player your team is attempting to sign. In fact, there are a solid number of players (56) represented by unknown agents or agencies.

The majority of MLB players, however, are represented by large companies in the same ilk as Boras -- most of which, like Boras, are located in Southern California -- and are designed to represent a large body of clients.

Here is a list of the Top 10 agencies -- ranked by number of clients -- along with a few of their notable players, courtesy of MLBFinances.com. (If any of our information needs correcting, please do not hesitate to let us know):
