NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez and longtime agent Scott Boras have split.

The New York Yankees slugger said Friday that he and Boras had “a good run,” but he no longer needs some of the things he needed 20 years ago.

It’s unlikely that Rodriguez will have to negotiate another contract during his playing career. The third baseman is in the third season of a record $275 million, 10-year deal that carries through the 2017 season, when he will turn 42.

Rodriguez has said he negotiated that contract without Boras‘ help. The three-time MVP opted out of his previous deal after the 2007 season but criticized Boras for the timing of that news, which broke during Game 4 of the World Series between Boston and Colorado.
