So Far Capuano Proving To Be A Sage Signing

When Ben Cherington signed West Springfield native Chris Capuano, many pointed to the risk of signing a guy with two Tommy John surgeries in his past. While Capuano has always been a steady performer, injury concerns lingered. So far in 2014, Capuano has delivered an impressive 2.45 ERA in eleven innings of work—including three hitless innings against The Evil Ones yesterday. The lefty will work out of the bullpen, but could be used as an emergency starter if Boston loses one to injury. In 2012, Capuano made 33 starts for the Dodgers and delivered 12 wins, along with a 3.72 ERA over 198 1/3 innings.
