Matt Capps will attempt his comeback with the Diamondbacks

One-time All-Star reliever Matt Capps threw for teams earlier this month in the hopes of securing a minor-league contract to attempt a comeback and he looked decent enough to convince the Diamondbacks to sign him.

Capps hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2012 with the Twins and the 32-year-old right-hander logged a grand total of just 12 professional innings from 2013-2015 due to arm problems.

He seems likely to begin the season at Triple-A, where the former Pirates, Nationals, and Twins closer will try to prove to the Diamondbacks that can still be a useful bullpen piece after all these years.
