2016

2015

A change of scenery at the start of 2014 looked to be just what the doctor ordered for Capps, who consistently failed to harness his electric arsenal of pitches into steady production on the field despite being billed as one of Seattle’s finest prospect arms. Capps, however, spent much of his season taking orders from the doctors while spending four months on the disabled list with an elbow injury. The reliever returned in September to finish out the season on a strong note, striking out 10 batters in 8.2 innings pitched over eight appearances. Capps averaged over 97 mph on his fastball during his brief time with the Marlins last season, and he's still just 24 years old, leaving plenty of time for the Marlins' front office look good for buying low on the flame-thrower last offseason. A healthy Capps will slot nicely into a late-inning role setting up Steve Cishek at the start of the season.

2014

Capps turned in a disappointing 2013 campaign for the Mariners. Coming off a year in which he dominated right-handed batters to the tune of a .212 BAA, Capps was hit hard last season from both sides of the plate. His BAA against right-handers ballooned to .288, and he allowed 12 homers in 59 innings after not allowing one long ball in 2012. What's more, the 6-foot-5 reliever, known for his 100-mph heater, saw his average fastball decline from 98.3 mph to 95.6. Capps was sent to Triple-A Tacoma midseason to work on the mechanics of his three-quarter delivery. His return seemed to be going well initially, but nine walks and seven earned runs in 9.1 September innings showed that Capps is still searching for answers. Perhaps he will find them this season. He still has that big fastball, good secondary stuff and a lot of upside, which likely led the Marlins to acquire him for Logan Morrison in December. Capps will look to rebound while working in a setup role in front of Steve Cishek in 2014, and he could be a candidate for the ninth inning if Cishek cedes the job.

2013

The 6-foot-5 right-hander with a three-quarter delivery is know for his 100-mph fastball, but it was the development of his offspeed pitches that helped transform Capps from thrower to pitcher last season. A 2011 third-round pick, Capps dominated at Double-A Jackson - 1.29 ERA, 13.0 K/9 - and spent all of one game at Triple-A Tacoma (striking out three of four batters faced) before a promotion to Seattle where an improving curve, slider and 89-mph changeup became an important part of his repertoire. Capps, whose 98.3 mph average fastball ranked second in the majors last season, is ticketed for a late-inning role again this season. The Mariners have a few options for closer should Tom Wilhelmsen falter or be traded, and Capps is in the mix. As his offspeed pitches continue to develop, he should become even more nasty. Keep him on the closer-in-waiting radar.
