The Milwaukee Brewers announced the signing of veteran left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training on Monday.
The 37-year-old Capuano pitched for the Brewers from 2002 through 2007 before injuring his arm and missing two seasons. He returned to Milwaukee in 2010 before becoming a free agent and signing with the New York Mets.
Capuano went on to pitch for the Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees. He went 0-4 with a 7.97 ERA in 22 games with Yankees last season and is 76-91 with a 4.39 ERA in 300 major league games, including 225 starts.
Capuano’s best season came in 2005 when he won 18 games and made the National League all-star team the following season. In 139 games (120 starts) for the Brewers, he was 44-48 with a 4.34 ERA.
The Brewers also signed lefty Cesar Jimenez, who signed a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.
