Yankees re-sign Chris Capuano for $5 million

As of last month Chris Capuano was talking about possibly going to Japan to continue his career, but now he’s re-signing with the Yankees.

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that it’s a one-year, $5 million for the 36-year-old left-hander, who posted a 4.35 ERA and 84/34 K/BB ratio in 97 innings for the Yankees and Red Sox in 2014.

Capuano can start or relieve, giving the Yankees some flexibility, and while his upside is obviously limited at this point he’s generally been a decent back-of-the-rotation starter.
