FORT MYERS, Fla. — Chris Capuano has made only 29 relief appearances over nine seasons in the majors. But it’s a role Red Sox manager John Farrell expects him to flourish in.
The lefthander arrived here Friday afternoon and is expected to be added to the roster Saturday. The 35-year-old West Springfield native was signed to a $2.25 million contract Thursday.
Farrell said Capuano would be prepared as a starter and move into the bullpen if he were not needed in the rotation.
“Experience of both starting and pitching out of the bullpen. Clearly gives us a depth starter if that need were to arise,” Farrell said. “But at the moment, all things considered, he would pitch out of the bullpen for us.”
