Capuano to Sign Minor-League Deal With Brewers

Right Field BleachersCorrespondent IDecember 15, 2008

The Brewers are reportedly close to signing lefty Chris Capuano to an incentive-laden minor-league deal for 2009.

When Capuano got hurt last year, it appeared his time as a Brewer was going to end, but with the team in need of pitching and Capuano seemingly happy to be in the organization, the two sides worked out a deal that should benefit both sides.

Capuano will start the year in the minors so he can work back from his second Tommy John surgery and he could be first in line for a spot in the Big-League rotation if someone falters or is injured. He helps provide the Brewers, who are very thin in starting pitching within the organization, with some pitching depth.

Welcome back, Cappy.
