Matt Capps failed to make the Indians out of spring training and then appeared in just six games at Triple-A before undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery, but he’ll give it another try next year.

Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that the Indians have re-signed Capps to another minor-league contract with an invitation spring training, where the former Pirates, Nationals, and Twins closer will try to resurrect his career as a middle reliever.

Capps is still just 30 years old, but he never really had much business closing and was mostly limited to low-leverage work at the end of his time in Minnesota.

    What’s more suprising? Cleveland re-signing him or he’s 30? Dude looks like he’s 45.

    “never really had much business closing” except when he made the All Star team doing that for the Nats.
