The career of Chris Capuano lives on, and in a pretty decent place too.
Capuano, 35, will add rotation depth for the Red Sox, who were need of it after Ryan Dempster announced he would not pitch this season.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported Capuano will receive a base salary of $2.25 million from the Red Sox, with performance bonuses that could take it to $5 million. He already received a $1-million buyout from the Dodgers.
Capuano struggled to stay healthy last season, having to overcome calf, shoulder and groin injuries. He finished the season 4-7 with a 4.26 earned-run average and a 1.41 WHIP.
Still, you have to wish him well. He never became a clubhouse problem and ultimately was willing to move to the bullpen to help the team, and try to win a playoff roster spot. He appeared in one division-series game against the Braves, picking up a win, but did not make the roster in the National League Championship Series against the Cardinals.
