|Marlins swap Logan Morrison for Carter Capps |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(12/11/13) The Miami Herald reports that the Marlins traded first baseman Logan Morrison to the Mariners for reliever Carter Capps on Wednesday.
The Marlins had been aggressively shopping Morrison since their recent signing of first baseman Garrett Jones. In 85 games, Morrison hit .242 with six home runs and 36 RBI in 2013.
Capps made 53 appearances for the Mariners this past season and went 3-3 with a 5.49 ERA and 66 strikeouts in 59 innings.

|New pitch yielding results for Carter Capps |
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/9/13) Mariners reliever Carter Capps has had success with a new pitch early, MLB.com reports. He has been throwing a hybrid slider/cutter from a similar three-quarter arm slot with his fastball in the low-80s.
The right-hander struck out two with the pitch during his outing against the Astros and is sporting a 2.08 ERA through four appearances. He also has seven strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.
"Last year, I'd throw eight or nine fastballs in a row, then I'd throw a curve, I'd struggle with it, and then I'd throw another eight or nine fastballs," Capps said. "But this pitch is working better. It's pretty effective throwing out of the same window [as the fastball]."
|Carter Capps sharp in first 2013 appearance |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(4/3/13) Mariners reliever Carter Capps was sharp in his first relief appearance of 2013 Tuesday against Oakland. The 6-foot-5 righty threw 1 2/3 scoreless innings with one hit and one walk against a strikeout.
If Tom Wilhelmsen were to lose the closer's role in Seattle -- whether by injury or ineffectiveness -- Capps may be next in line. Capps' velocity was merely in the 92-95 mph range Tuesday night, but he's capable of touching triple digits and pairs it with a sharp curveball -- the pitch used to strike out Yoenis Cespedes. Capps will be a reliever worth watching as the season goes on.
2014 team preview: Seattle Mariners
The Mariners made a huge splash in the offseason by signing Robinson Cano, but is it enough to make them serious contenders in the AL West? Let's preview their season.
2014 team preview: Miami Marlins
The Marlins were a bit of a punchline in 2013. Will 2014 bring respectability?
|Carter Capps burst onto the prospect scene during a breakout season in 2012. The 2011 third-round pick went 2-3 with a 1.23 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 19 saves over 39 appearances between Double-A and Triple-A. He also struck out 13.1 batters per nine innings and had a 6.25 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Capps would even make his MLB debut in 2012, posting a 3.96 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 25 innings over 18 appearances for the Mariners. Unfortunately, Capps had a lot of ups and downs in his first full major-league season in 2013. While he continued to post a great strikeout rate (10.1 K/9), he dealt with some command issues (3.5 BB/9) and was hit hard (11.1 H/9). Capps was also burned by the long ball, yielding 12 home runs in 59 innings. After posting a 5.49 ERA and 1.63 WHIP last season, the Mariners shipped the hard-throwing right-hander to the Marlins in the offseason in exchange for Logan Morrison. While Capps has the potential one day to develop into an MLB closer, he still has some issues to iron out. Capps has marginal Fantasy appeal on Draft Day.
