    Red Sox sign Capuano - $2.25M

    @PeteAbe 3m
    Cherington indicates the #redsox are close to signing a veteran starter. Capuano would seem like a likely candidate.

    Source : Capuano to Red Sox likely. Deal could be announced later in day or tomorrow.

    Dempster replacement.

    I like it as insurance. He'll make a decent swing type and not cost nearly as much as Dempster would have.

    He's garbage. Hope we see as little of him as possible this year.

    FORT MYERS, Fla. — According to a report from MassLive.com, the Red Sox have signed veteran left-hander Chris Capuano. CBS Sports reports that the deal is worth $2.25 million with incentives that could net Capuano up to $5 million.

    Capuano, 35, would resupply Boston with some of the starting depth lost when Ryan Dempster hung up his cleats for 2014. It does not appear as if Capuano would compete for a spot in the starting rotation. Rather, he’d be a guy who can be stored in the bullpen and used as a spot starter when needed.

    Capuano has limited experience as a reliever, including four relief appearances last season for the Dodgers. He spent the last two years in Los Angeles, going 16-19 with a 3.91 ERA in 57 games.

    An All-Star while with the Brewers in 2006, Capuano missed both the 2008 and 2009 seasons because of Tommy John surgery. (That was his second Tommy John surgery; the first came in 2002 while in the minor leagues.) Over that period, he endured an ignominious stretch in which Milwaukee lost 26 consecutive games in which Capuano appeared.

    He revitalized his career in 2011 with the Mets, making 31 starts and posting a 4.55 ERA.

    This would mark a bit of a homecoming for Capuano, who grew up in Springfield, Mass.

    The Red Sox have had interest in Capuano before: He was the subject of rumors in September 2011, when the team considered acquiring a pitcher for a potential one-game wild-card playoff.

    The move would likely curtail competition for the final bullpen spot since, presumably, it would belong to Capuano. It also signals that Brandon Workman would probably open the year in Triple-A Pawtucket.

    2 million for a mediocre starting pitcher is a terrific signing.

    2M is basically pennies in today's market. Especially when guys like Bronson Arroyo are getting like 13M.

    Lol this for sure. We got Capuano and Andrew Miller for a combined base salary of somewhere around 5MM? I'll take that, if they pitch well and earn incentives, then odds are we're winning games - which I like, a lot.

    It's a good deal.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    A vet pay is usually $2M just as roster filler. This is no different.

    Decent signing I guess. Capuano will give us added pitching depth.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: 9-11, games this week vs. New York Yankees (3), Toronto (3)
    Indianapolis Colts: 11-5, 2013 AFC South Champs, great season guys.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, good effort guys.

    Kieth Law is an idiot. He's a bargain considering the market.

    Also this after he signed.

    Great Signing.

    Will probably produce the same value Dempster would have this year at 11 Mil less. Love it...

    Plus, keeping Workman in the BP for the full season is a big plus, having him start then relieve then start could have caused some problems for him.

    Capuano can be a long reliever who can also function as a lefty specialist when there are a few lefties coming up in a row when Bucholoz is healthy.

    Will Buch or Capuano get more starts this year? I will go with Capuano.
