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.
In 2012, Capps saved 14 of his 15 chances with the Minnesota Twins before being sidelined in the second half with shoulder inflammation.
