    Red Sox "Likely To Sign" Chris Capuano?

    Red Sox Likely To Sign Chris Capuano

    By Jeff Todd [February 20 at 11:31am CST]

    The Red Sox are likely to sign free agent hurler Chris Capuano, with a deal potentially announced later today or tomorrow, tweets Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. GM Ben Cherington said today that the team "may be close to bringing another pitcher to camp," Alex Speier of WEEI.com reports on Twitter.

    Reports of Boston's interest in the 35-year-old southpaw arose on Tuesday, after it was announced that Ryan Dempster would sit out the season. Capuano struggled with injuries late last year, and ultimately ended up finishing his tenure with the Dodgers spending time throwing from the pen. That probably suits the Sox just fine, however, as the team is said to be interested in adding a swingman who can contribute innings in either capacity.

    Capuano has worked from the rotation over much of his career, making 209 starts out of 238 total appearances. Across the last two years with Los Angeles, he logged a cumulative 3.91 ERA in 304 innings, with 7.2 K/9 against 2.3 BB/9.

    Unless there's injury with our pitching staff, I really don't understand this move.  If everyone's healthy and Ben signed Capuano, I think a trade is coming soon maybe during the ST.

    Are you being comedic, or do you really think Capauno is somehow jumping the line for fifth starter?

    Re: Red Sox

    I love this move. There is real value in that swingman role that Aceves filled so well and that Capuano is going to play, and for cheap! Still leaves us room to make a deal at the deadline if we want to.

    He doesn't have to be that good, just come into games and eat innings when the occasional starter has a bad day and has to leave after 3 or 4. Protects the pen.

    More importantly it gives Workman the opportunity to start in Pawtucket rather than pitching out of the pen in Boston. If he can be a successful starter at all we should try and give him every opportunity to work on that, rather than shuttling him back and forth between the rotation and the pen. Great move.

    AAA rotation is more crowded than the Red Sox.

    This does seem to ensure that Workman starts the season in Triple-A...but big deal. Cherington is covering his rear to make sure no 2006-style pitching collapse happens on his watch; if there's an injury or two, we don't have to rest all our hopes on Workman or Webster or one of the other kids being ready to shoulder the load.

    Ben has been a wizard of stockpiling pitching depth this winter. I love it.

    I don't get it either. Departure of Dempster opened a path for the ypitching prospects. This seems to block it again.

    Coud it be there  is major trade in the works (Stanton?) to include one or more of pitching prospects, in which case this would make some sense?

    If the Sox signed 35 yr old Capuano, so that they could trade their young pitching for a position player, I'm going to be ticked off.

    I guess Workman will start the year with the Pawtucket.  Workman-Webster-Ranaudo-Barnes-DRL.  It's not a bad move but it's an unnecessary move IMO.  Workman would have served perfectly as a swing man and we have plenty of depth.

    Nothing like demoralizing your stable of young prospects who were given a glimmer of hope with the Dempster situation.  What is it with this organization and pitching?  Does a pitcher really need several years of AAA seasoning just to get a shot?  If the Sox had Felix Hernandez or Clayton Kershaw we would be talking about them maybe being ready for a September call-up this year.

    Now, maybe I am being naive or I am not seeing the big obvious picture here, granted, but:  why are people assuming that 35 year old Chris "I haven't seen meaningful action in forever and when I did I was moderately acceptable" Capauno gets slotted in above Brandon Workman?

    ...if certain people didn't show up to b***h every time we signed a player, no matter how minor, cheap, or peripheral to the team's success, it wouldn't need to be said.
