Brewers bring back Chris Capuano on minors deal

1 Comment

Left-hander Chris Capuano, who pitched for the Brewers from 2004-2010, is rejoining the team on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training.

Capuano struggled mightily for the Yankees last season and at age 37 he’s nearing the end of the line, but he was effective in both 2013 and 2014 as a swing man starting and relieving.

During his first go-around in Milwaukee he made an All-Star team, topped 200 innings in back-to-back seasons, and posted a 4.34 ERA in 745 total innings. This time around he’ll have to compete for a roster spot on a rebuilding team.
