Chris Capuano has tough start Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Yankees pitcher Chris Capuano had a tough start Tuesday against the Astros. 

Capuano allowed four runs on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out eight and walked two. Capuano performed well early, but fell apart later in the contest. He allowed one run in the fifth before things collapsed in the sixth. Capuano led off the inning by giving up a single to Dexter Fowler. Fowler scored on a groundout. Capuano then proceeded to allow two straight singles. He was pulled from the game at that point. Both runs came around to score, and were charged to Capuano.

The Yankees battled back, giving Capuano a no-decision. He’ll take on the White Sox in his next start.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Capuano watched the first batter of the game reach base safely on an error by shortstop Derek Jeter, and that runner would later score on a sacrifice fly. The starter shut things down from there, not putting two runners on base at the same time until his final batter of the game. Capuano owns a 3.91 ERA and 46:20 K:BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings.

Twins had early interest in signing Chris Capuano


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

"That pretty much filled that need for them," Capuano said of the Twins re-signing Pelfrey.

Chris Capuano surrenders two runs in spring debut


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Red Sox pitcher Chris Capuano allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk in two innings while striking out one in his spring debut Wednesday as the Red Sox fell to the Cardinals, 8-6.

"[It] felt good out there," Capuano told MLB.com. "It was good to get my feet wet this spring and get out there in a real game. I was able to work on my pitches. Had runners on base there in the first inning, so got to work out of the stretch a little bit, got to field my position. [I] got a little bit of everything today."

Capuano could be a factor in the team's rotation plans with Ryan Dempster out for the season and with Jake Peavy potentially needing a DL stint due to his injured finger.


Report: Chris Capuano set with Sox


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2014) Left-hander Chris Capuano has passed his physical to make his deal with the Red Sox official, per SB Nation.

Capuano could serve as a spot starter, but history says he will prove more valuable as a reliever to face mostly left-handed batters, against whom he is far more effective. He has held left-handed batters to a .231 average in his career, but right-handed sticks have batted .276 against him. The splits were more pronounced in 2013 (.248-.312).
