Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Red Sox are engaged in negotiations with free agent left-hander Chris Capuano. Rosenthal says Boston’s front office is looking at Capuano as a potential swingman — somebody who would pitch primarily in relief but could also be available for some spot starts. Capuano registered a 4.26 ERA…

Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners are in talks with free agent Chris Capuano. Why not? He’s a lefty who was somewhat serviceable last year, going 4-7 with a 4.26 ERA for the Dodgers despite the fact that he had multiple injuries and ailments. The Dodgers still had faith enough in him to put him…

The Dodgers made a depth signing when they agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal Saturday evening. With Dan Haren suffering from back and shoulder issues over the past two seasons, and with Josh Beckett working his way back from shoulder surgery last July, the Dodgers needed a fallback option in the event either or…

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports is reporting that the Orioles are talking with free agent starters Joe Saunders and Chris Capuano. The Orioles had previously shown interest in A.J.

The entire starting pitching market is waiting for Masahiro Tanaka to sign. Nothing is gonna happen of significance until he does. Thus stuff like this: Chris Capuano is looking for a two-year deal, and is said to be willing to wait for that deal to evolve someplace. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) January 6, 2014 …

Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that the Dodgers are making some changes to the playoff roster for the NLCS, adding Carlos Marmol and Edinson Volquez and removing Chris Capuano and Paco Rodriguez.

It was a close back-and-forth affair between the Braves and Dodgers for the first three and a half innings in Game 3 of the NLDS in Los Angeles tonight. The game was tied at four-all, then the Dodger offense woke up, building a lead as large as nine runs entering the bottom of the ninth.…

Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu is currently scheduled to square off against Braves right-hander Julio Teheran in Game 3 of the NLDS on Sunday in Los Angeles, but Ken Gurnick of MLB.com noticed something that would appear to indicate that he’s not feeling 100 percent at the moment. For example, Ryu worked out this week with…

Andre Ethier spent the past few days trying to convince the Dodgers and their training staff that he was capable enough of playing through an ankle injury to be an asset in the NLDS and apparently it worked. Ethier has made the opening-round playoff roster, but will likely be limited to pinch-hitting duties after sitting…
