Capuano won't return to Brewers

Chris Capuano The Brewers have broken off negotiations with lefty starter Chris Capuano after determining there wasn't a spot for him in the rotation, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

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.

Capuano won't return to Brewers

My Nostradamus alter ego is envisioning Cappy joining someone like the Diamondbacks and just smoking the Brew Crew in a game or two this season.  My only hope is some AL team takes a liking to him.

One of the smartest guys you'd ever meet that wears a baseball uni.

Capuano won't return to Brewers

Well as a Brewers fan I wish him well and nothing but the best.  He always was a guy that made the best of his ability and had a dont back down mentality.  If half the pitchers in this league had his determination this would be a much better game as far as pure baseball goes.  Good luck Cappy and hope you find a team that fits you well, you deserve it.
