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.
