Chris Capuano P COL 4 Days

The Rockies could call up Chris Capuano from Triple-A Colorado Springs to start on Tuesday against the Nationals.

The Rox have decided to give Eddie Butler more time in the minors, so Capuano and Yohan Flande are looking like the main options for Tuesday. Signed to a minor league contract earlier this month following his release from the Red Sox, Capuano has put up a 2.93 ERA over 12 1/3 innings in the minors as he stretches out to start again. He went 4 2/3 frames in his latest outing, so he obviously wouldn't have the stamina yet to pitch too deep into Tuesday's game.

Rockies signed LHP Chris Capuano to a minor league contract.

It's a good fit, as the Rockies are desperate for rotation depth and Capuano is better than what he showed in Boston, when he put up a 4.55 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 31 2/3 relief innings. He'll need to stretch out after pitching exclusively out of the bullpen with the Red Sox but should rejoin the Rockies' rotation sometime after the All-Star break.

Red Sox released LHP Chris Capuano.

Not surprisingly, Capuano cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox last week. The 35-year-old had a 4.55 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 31 2/3 innings of relief with Boston this season. It shouldn't be long before he finds a new home elsewhere.

Red Sox designated LHP Chris Capuano for assignment.

Capuano had a 4.55 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 31 2/3 innings of relief, and after a five-run outing his last time out the Red Sox finally decided they'd seen enough. He may catch on somewhere else on a minor league deal, but it appears to be getting to the end of the road for the 35-year-old.

Chris Capuano pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings for a relief victory Wednesday against the White Sox.

Capuano has been a revelation in relief for the Red Sox, throwing nine scoreless innings in the team's first 15 games. Given his injury history, we'll see if he can keep it up. He has to be in line for a couple of days off after the long outing tonight.

Making his spring debut, Chris Capuano yielded two runs in two innings Wednesday in his start against the Cardinals.

A Xavier Scruggs homers did the damage. Capuano projects as the swingman on the Red Sox staff; he's expected to be in the pen initially, but he could step into the rotation as soon as a starter is needed.

Red Sox signed LHP Chris Capuano to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Capuano passed his physical on Saturday morning making the deal official. He'll compete for the final spot in the Red Sox rotation this spring, but will likely end up as the long-man out of the bullpen. He's only relevant in mixed leagues if he's in the Opening Day rotation.

Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston reports that Chris Capuano has arrived at Red Sox camp and will undergo his physical on Saturday.

If all goes well and the deal becomes official, he'll throw his first bullpen session with his new squad on Sunday. He'd make for an interesting late-round flyer in mixed league drafts if he earns the final spot in the Red Sox rotation, but the most likely scenario has him winding up as the long man in the bullpen.

Ron Chimelis of the Springfield Republican reports that the Red Sox have signed left-hander Chris Capuano.

It's a one-year, $2.25 million deal, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. Capuano drew surprisingly little interest this winter despite dominant career numbers against left-handed hitters and the ability to both start and relieve. The Red Sox will let him compete for their fifth rotation spot this spring but will likely use him as a swingman (moving between the bullpen and rotation) once the regular season begins. Capuano, 35, boasts a solid 3.91 ERA and 1.286 WHIP in his last 304 major league innings.

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Red Sox have made "some progress" with free agent Chris Capuano.

Boston is viewing the veteran left-hander as a potential swingman who would work primarily in relief but could also step in for some spot starts. Capuano, 35, posted a 3.91 ERA and 1.286 WHIP in 304 innings during his two-year run (2012-2013) with the Dodgers. He has held left-handed batters to a .231/.288/.331 slash line in his nine-year major league career. The Mariners are also known to have interest.
