Capuano back with the Brewers

Posted: Updated:

Former All-Star pitcher Chris Capuano has signed a minor-league contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, the team he played for a decade earlier.

Capuano was one of two left-handed pitchers to receive an invitation to spring training from the Brewers on Monday, the other being Cesar Jimenez, who reached a similar agreement.

The left-hander joined the Brewers in December 2003 as part of the trade to send Richie Sexson to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Capuano went on to win 18 games in 2005 before being named an All-Star in 2006. He went 44-48 with a 4.34 ERA in five seasons with the Brewers, having missed two seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Capuano left Milwaukee after the 2010 season and went on to play for the New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox, and New York Yankees. In 2015, Capuano went 0-4 with a 7.97 ERA in 22 games for the Yankees.

Brewers pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Friday, February 19.
