Player Notes
Yankees re-signed LHP Chris Capuano to a one-year contract.

Advice: Capuano posted a 4.25 ERA in 12 starts down the stretch with New York this past season and now he projects to begin 2015 in the starting rotation. His role could change if the Yankees decide to splurge on another pitcher prior to spring training, but the veteran southpaw isn't a terrible placeholder.

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees have re-signed Chris Capuano to a one-year, $5 million.

Advice: Capuano considered a move to Japan this offseason, but he's back with the Yankees as back-end rotation insurance. The 36-year-old posted a 4.25 ERA and 55/19 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings over 12 starts with New York down the stretch in 2014.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Chris Capuano is close to a deal with an unidentified team.

Advice: Crasnick adds that the deal isn't with a Japanese team, which is notable given Capuano's previous comments about the possibility. The 36-year-old southpaw held a 4.35 ERA with 84 strikeouts over 97 1/3 innings for the Red Sox and Yankees this past season. He could fit as a starter or a reliever somewhere.
