Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has ended his relationship with longtime agent Scott Boras.
Teixeira made the announcement before Wednesday’s spring training game against Houston.
Boras negotiated Teixeira’s eight-year free-agent contract with the Yankees that runs through the 2016 season.
Teixeira says he had a great relationship business wise with Boras, but that after 12 years together sometimes it’s time to make a little bit of a change. He has not yet selected a new agent.
Teixeira’s off-field charity work was not handled by Boras’ group.
