|Indians bring back two pitchers|
|by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com|
(3/26/13) Less than three days after releasing the duo, the Indians re-signed pitchers Daisuke Matsuzaka and Matt Capps to minor-league deals Tuesday. Matsuzaka allowed two runs and 10 hits over eight innings during Cactus League play, and Capps had a 3.00 ERA over six relief appearances for the Indians.

(3/25/13) The Indians released reliever Matt Capps on Monday, according to MLB.com. However, the team is interested in re-signing Capps and keeping him in their system. Capps posted a 3.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in six spring innings. He also had one save.
|Matt Capps won't make Indians' opening day roster|

(3/18/13) Matt Capps will not make the Indians' opening day roster, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reported Monday.
Capps, 29, was wild in his few appearances this spring, as he walked three batters in four innings. Capps posted a 3.68 ERA (111 ERA+) last season but struggled with injuries. He missed 79 games over two disabled list stints with shoulder inflammation.
The Indians have not yet decided if they will release Capps or keep him in the minors. If Capps and the club agree for him to start the season in the minors, Capps can take a $100,000 retention bonus and opt out of his contract on or before June 1.
|Capps gets game action|
|(2/25/13) Indians reliever Matt Capps made his Cactus League debut on Monday against the A's after dealing with shoulder issues for most of last season. It was not the sharpest of outings, however, as he allowed two runs on three hits over an inning of work. Capps also walked one while throwing 11 pitches, six for strikes.
|Even though Matt Capps struggled sharing closer duties with Joe Nathan in 2011, the Twins brought him back to close full-time in 2012, and he did a fine job of it for half a season. Unfortunately, he lasted only half a season, succumbing to irritation in his right rotator cuff around the All-Star break. In his absence, lefty Glen Perkins quickly rendered him an afterthought, providing the strikeout-per-inning potential Capps had always lacked. Back on the market and without a clear suitor, Capps isn't a particularly enticing option for Fantasy owners. His experience as a closer could make him an emergency fill-in somewhere later this season, but he's unlikely to be earning saves in April. Even in leagues that value middle relievers, he's probably not worth the trouble on Draft Day. (Updated 1/8/13)|
