BALTIMORE — From the time he signed with the Red Sox in February, Chris Capuano consumed himself with getting acclimated with every possible detail.

There was his new ballpark. He had been to Fenway Park a handful of times growing up in West Springfield, Mass. But the last time he was there, he was a 20-year-old in the Cape Cod League. He spent spring training getting acclimated to the angles at JetBlue Park (a.k.a. Fenway South).
