    If your local talk radio host is frothing at the mouth over Michael Pineda today he is being willfully ignorant of baseball’s approach to doctored baseballs.

    Free agent left-hander Chris Capuano is on the verge of signing with the Red Sox, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. Cafardo reports that a deal could be completed as soon as today.

    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…

    Feb 18, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chris Capuano

    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…

  6. Paul Maholm willing to pitch out of the bullpen if necessary

    Feb 9, 2014, 6:05 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Pittsburgh Pirates

    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…

    Chris Capuano

    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  …

    The Orioles are still unsettled at closer and could use another bat for the designated hitter spot, but Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports hears that adding another starting pitcher is the club’s “primary focus” at this time. As we have heard throughout the winter, veteran right-hander A.J. Burnett is at the top of their list.…

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason.

    Atlanta Braves v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Three

    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…

  14. Dodgers’ playoff roster: Ethier and Capuano make it, League and Marmol left out

    Oct 3, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Andre Ethier Getty

    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…

  15. Joey Votto has reached base in nine consecutive trips to the plate

    Sep 7, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Reds first baseman Joey Votto last made an out in the eighth inning on Thursday in the series finale against the Cardinals. Since then, he has gone 4-for-4 with five walks in nine trips to the plate against Dodger pitchers. Last night, in a 3-2 victory, Votto drew a walk off of Chris Capuano, singled…

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Chicago Cubs

    As recently as June 22, the Dodgers were 31-42, 9.5 games out of first place in the NL West.

    There’s no stopping the red-hot Dodgers. They defeated the Cubs by the score of 6-2 at Wrigley Field yesterday afternoon to move 10 games over .500 for the first time this season. Hyun-Jin Ryu matched a season-high by giving up 11 hits, but managed to escape with just two runs scoring over 5 2/3 innings.…

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Yasiel Puig

    Rumors of Yasiel Puig‘s demise were greatly exaggerated. After lighting the baseball world on fire following his debut on June 3, Puig went into a skid, posting a .579 OPS in 16 games between July 3-23. The thought was that the league had finally caught up to him, but entering this afternoon’s series finale against…

    Matt Kemp Getty

    Well, we won’t have to worry about that logjam in the Dodgers’ outfield anytime soon. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports that Matt Kemp is headed to the 15-day disabled list. The 28-year-old outfielder was given a cortisone shot after he aggravated his surgically-repaired left shoulder during Friday’s game, but he still felt…

    Ryan Howard

    The Phillies won’t be using first baseman Ryan Howard in the starting lineup until Sunday, reports Matt Gelb.

    Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com says the Dodgers and Marlins are engaging in trade talks involving Ricky Nolasco. While rotation depth was supposed to be a major strength for the Dodgers this year, the team has lost Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett to injury and has gotten little from Ted Lilly so far. The team’s rotation…
