Capuano was a feel-good story after coming back from his second Tommy John surgery to make nine starts for the Brewers, appearing in the majors for the first time since 2007. The 32-year-old went 4-4 with a 3.95 ERA in 24 appearances and had hoped to work out an extension.
“Chris wants to be a starting pitcher and we don’t see a match at this time,” Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin said. “We like Chris a lot but we both decided it was best he look elsewhere. I heard teams are showing interest.”
The Brewers have added starters Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum to their rotation this offseason, and the Brewers also intend to start Yovani Gallardo, Randy Wolf and Chris Narveson.
