Jacob deGrom has left the CAA and is now represented by VC Sports Group, which also represents Mookie Betts among others, sources told The Post.
DeGrom was long represented by Brodie Van Wagenen at the CAA before Van Wagenen left to become the GM of the Mets. That puts deGrom in a quirky situation when negotiating an extension with a team that recruits his former agent, even though Van Wagenen has pulled himself out of negotiations for the alliance in the past.
DeGrom has signed a 5-year contract. Renew $ 137.5 million at the end of March 2019. He has three years left with $ 97.5 million in that contract.
Van Wagenen was no longer with the Mets since Friday, leaving after Steve Cohen bought the official franchise.
