CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Indians re-signed right-handed reliever Matt Capps to a Minor League contract with a non-roster invitation to spring training the team announced Thursday.
Capps, 30, was signed by Cleveland last January 31 but was limited to 7 spring training and 6 regular season relief appearances (AAA Columbus) before undergoing season-ending right shoulder surgery on June 5.
In 8 seasons, Capps is 29-33 with 138 saves and a 3.52 ERA in 444 relief appearances with Pittsburgh, Washington and Minnesota since debuting with the Pirates in 2005.
