• Indians add Capps to bullpen competition

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Jan 31, 2013
    The Cleveland Indians have signed free-agent reliever Matt Capps to a minor league contract. Capps' deal, announced Thursday, includes a non-roster invitation to spring training. The top right-handed options for the three openings includes Capps, Bryan Shaw, Cody Allen and Frank Herrmann. Huff, who will enter camp as a possibility for the rotation or bullpen, is also out of Minor League options. As things currently stand, the only perceived locks for the bullpen include closer Chris Perez, setup men Vinnie Pestano and Joe Smith, and right-hander Matt Albers, who is out of Minor League options. He opened last season closing for the Twins and had 14 saves in his first 15 chances, but was slowed by shoulder inflammation and pitched just four innings after June 15.
