Chris Capuano wants a two-year deal

8 Comments

The entire starting pitching market is waiting for Masahiro Tanaka to sign. Nothing is gonna happen of significance until he does. Thus stuff like this:

 

Capuano knows that he’ll look better to teams who try to get Tanaka or Ervin Santana or whoever else is left and fail, so he’s smart to wait. And maybe he gets that two-year deal.

Capuano — 35 — is coming off a season in which he posted a 4.26 ERA and 81/24 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. While he bounced back and forth from the rotation to the bullpen in 2013, he’s likely to snag a starting job someplace. He throws with his left hand, after all.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
