Yesterday marked the beginning of a new chapter in baseball, amid returning to some sense of normalcy toward the end of the global pandemic. Out of the 15 games played, four of them featured a starting pitcher represented by no other than CAA. The four players spotlighted were Sandy Alcantara, Max Fried, Jack Flaherty, and Lucas Giolito.
The four pitchers gross an AAV of $2,720,000 and all are on at least two-year ARB contracts. CAA, a continual powerhouse in the agency game, currently represents a group of players who accumulate more than 90 all-star appearances, with four Cy Young and three MVP winners.
CAA is in tough competition, treading the same waters as Boras Corporation, however, the firm continues on their upward trajectory, acquiring the names of global young talent.
