Matt Capps (shoulder) hopes to begin pitching in Cactus League games in two weeks.

Capps is on a more gradual throwing program than the other Indians' pitchers this spring due to last season's shoulder issues. "I know when I'm healthy, I'll take my chances with anybody," said Capps. "If I'm healthy in two weeks, and I can go out and physically compete, I think everything will work out pretty well." Capps is trying earn a spot in the Opening Day bullpen as a non-roster invitee, which he should be able to do as long as he's healthy.
