Free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran has severed ties with longtime agent Scott Boras and is now represented by Dan Lozano, according to a report on

Beltran, 34, was acquired by the Giants for the 2010 stretch drive. He is a free agent for the first time since signing a seven-year, 119 million deal with the Mets in 2005.

Beltran appeared in 44 games with the Giants, batting .323 with seven home runs and 18 RBI. He is a candidate to win a Gold Glove for his play in right field last season.

He is s a .283 hitter with 302 home runs in 14 seasons.

Boras was quoted in September that Beltran was open to returning to San Francisco.

"He came to the Giants for a reason," Boras said at the premiere of "Moneyball.' "Obviously he has played very well here. He has gotten a chance to get to know the city and the organization."

Lozano also represents Albert Pujols and Jimmy Rollins.

Boras is most familiar to Giants fans as the agent who negotiated Barry Zito's seven-year, 126 million dollar contract with San Francisco.
