The Boston Red Sox could be a fit for Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Chris Capuano, reports Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Capuano could be a fit for Boston — Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) December 9, 2012 The Dodgers entered the offseason amid reports that they’d be willing to trade a veteran starter or two in order to make room for potential acquisitions. They’ve since signed a pair of starters, including Zack Greinke, which may increase their efforts to deal Capuano. Meanwhile, the Red Sox are in the market for starting pitching, and Cafardo believes the veteran left-hander could be a fit. Over 33 starts spanning 198 1/3 innings with the Dodgers last season Capuano posted an ERA of 3.72 to go with a 1.220 WHIP. The 34-year-old is set to make $6 million next year and his contract includes a $6 million option for the 2014 season with a $1 million buyout.  Follow @mlbinjurynews !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.mlbinjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
