Current Client Roster
You won't find a lot of names here, as I've purposely kept my practice small enough to treat every client as a priority.
"After having to cut ties with my first agent, I had the good fortune of being hooked up with David through a teammate. As a rookie level player at the time, David talked to me as if I were any one of his big league clients. Whenever I need something he gets it done. Very quick, honest and hard working I value David very much as my agent and also as a good friend"
ARLINGTON, Texas. – The Indians won't confirm it, but it has been reported that they've come to terms with their second pick in the first-year player draft.
Jim Callis of mlb.com reported early Friday morning that the Indians and high school left-hander Justus Sheffield agreed on a $1.6 million signing bonus. It was below the slotting bonus of $1.733 million for the 31stoverall pick in the draft and included tuition for eight semesters at Vanderbilt University.
Sheffield committed to play at Vanderbilt, where his brother Jordan is a pitcher, before coming to terms with the Tribe.
"I'm not going to comment on any negotiations or signings until we have officially announced them," said Brad Grant, Indians director of amateur scouting.
Sheffield, 18, went 10-0 with a 0.34 ERA and 131 strikeouts in 61 2/3 innings for Tullahoma (Tenn.) High School this year. The 6-1, 180-pound Sheffield was the first player from Tennessee to win Gatorade's National Player of the Year award. Clint Frazier, the Indians' No. 1 pick last year, won the award a year ago.
In announcing the signing Thursday night on the first day of the draft, Grant said, "He's a very athletic left-hander with a really good track record. He played for Team USA and played in all the showcases over the summer. He's got a good combination of pitches – a fastball up to 95 mph, a power slider, a feel for the change-up and an advanced feel to pitch."
