In this paper, the Cauchy problem of the $ 3 $D compressible Navier-Stokes equations with degenerate viscosities and far field vacuum is considered. We prove that the $ L^\infty $ norm of the deformation tensor $ D(u) $ ($ u $: the velocity of fluids) and the $ L^6 $ norm of $ \nabla \log \rho $ ($ \rho $: the mass density) control the possible blow-up of regular solutions. This conclusion means that if a solution with far field vacuum to the Cauchy problem of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations with degenerate viscosities is initially regular and loses its regularity at some later time, then the formation of singularity must be caused by losing the bound of $ D(u) $ or $ \nabla \log \rho $ as the critical time approaches; equivalently, if both $ D(u) $ and $ \nabla \log \rho $ remain bounded, a regular solution persists.
