Boras starting early this year

Ask Scott Boras about his newest client, Phillies right fielder Jayson Werth, and the first words out of the agent’s mouth are, “He can play center field.”

Werth, a free agent at the end of the season, has made 18 starts in center this season – mostly while Shane Victorino was on the disabled list – and 77 in his career.

Because few center fielders hit like Werth, his marketability will only increase if prospective suitors consider him a viable defender at the position.

“He has the closing speed to play center,” Boras says. “It makes your team so different. Normally you get that production out of a corner outfielder.” (Source)
