All-Star outfielder Carlos Beltran is leaving agent Scott Boras for Dan Lozano’s Iconic Sports Group, ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick tweeted today.

The controversial Boras helped Beltran secure a seven-year $119 million contract in January 2005 with the New York Mets after the then 27-year-old hit .267/.367/.548 with 38 home runs with both the Kansas City Royals and Houston Astros.  Beltran has now decided to hit the free-agent market with a new partner.

Beltran had a comeback year in 2011 playing for both the Mets and the San Francisco Giants. In 142 games the 34-year-old hit .300/.385/.525 with 22 home runs and 84 RBI. His .910 OPS was the highest the slugger has posted since 2007 when he hit .275/.388/.594 with 41 home runs for the Mets. Beltran has hit .283/.361/.496 with 302 home runs throughout his 14-year-career.
