Freddie Freeman has fired the agency that represented him in his offseason negotiations, Excel Sports Management, according to multiple sources.

Freeman left the Atlanta Braves and signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in free agency, which came as a shock to many. He had a long history with the Braves and they were coming off a World Series championship.

Freeman acknowledged his status with his agent is "fluid," but did not confirm the firing.

"Last weekend in Atlanta was a very emotional time for me and my family," Freeman said. "I am working through some issues with my longtime agents at Excel. My representation remains a fluid situation and I will update if needed."

The MLB Players Association sent an email to agents on Freeman's behalf Monday, ordering agents to not contact the player. This is common practice when players do not want to be besieged by agents. Freeman is listed within baseball's central system as currently being self-represented.
