UPDATE: So much for that. Capuano signed with the Dodgers.
Among the many items on the Twins’ to-do list this offseason is adding another veteran starter to the rotation and LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that they’re interested in left-hander Chris Capuano.
Capuano is coming off a bounceback season for the Mets at age 33, remaining healthy for the first time since way back in 2007 while throwing 186 innings with a 4.55 ERA and 168/53 K/BB ratio.
His incentive-laden one-year contract proved to be a bargain for the Mets, but this time around he might be looking for a two-year deal despite a lengthy history of arm problems and zero 200-inning seasons since 2006.
