RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Capuano's first season in Los Angeles went about as well as can be expected - 3.72 ERA, 12 wins and 162 strikeouts. For a guy who made just nine big league starts from 2008-2010 around his second career Tommy John surgery, the late-career renaissance has been impressive. While he saw a slight decline in his strikeout rate (to 7.3 from 8.1 K/9), most of his peripheral stats were the same as the prior two seasons. The only worry was a 4.76 ERA after the All-Star break. However, he enters the spring in a logjam of starters with the Dodgers and may have to win the final rotation spot or could be traded.

2012

Capuano came all the way back from his second Tommy John surgery to post the best strikeout rate of his career while starting his most games since 2006. That said, Capuano was inconsistent from start-to-start and posted a 5.08 ERA in 14 starts after the All-Star Game. Part of that might have been due to an extremely low strand rate, and it's worth noting that his FIP was a third of a run below his ERA. Capuano signed a two-year deal with the Dodgers, so he gets to pitch in another pitchers park, which should help his overall numbers.

2011

Capuano made a remarkable comeback from a second Tommy John surgery and actually pitched decent for the Brewers. Nearly all of his rate stats were similar to before his pre-surgery marks, though he did get a little lucky with his strand rate. Capuano is a free agent this winter and the Brewers are trying to bring him back. He'll try to find a team that will give him a shot at a rotation spot.

2010

Capuano missed all of the 2008 season and most of the 2009 season after undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career. He returned late in 2009 and pitched in six games at the rookie level for the Brewers. No one really has any idea what to expect from him in 2010, but the Brewers will bring him to spring training and take a look. He'll need to prove himself and might need to start in the minors before getting another chance with the Brewers.

2009

Capuano missed the entire 2008 season due to Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow. It's the second time he's had the surgery and he'll attempt a comeback, but don't expect much.

2008

Capuano's decline appears to have started right after he pitched in the All-Star game in 2006. Since that time he's gone 5-12 with a 5.13 ERA and was removed from the starting rotation late in 2007. A closer look at Capuano's BB/9IP and K/9IP numbers show that they were very similar to his 2005 season when he was 18-12 with a 3.99 ERA. The biggest difference was in BABIP, which jumped from .291 to .340 and may be related to a poor defense behind him. The Brewers appear ready to trade him if they can find a taker. Still, don't expect him to put up 18 wins with any team, even though he could have a bounceback season.

2007

Capuano rode a hot start to an All-Star game appearance, but faded down the stretch. After going 10-4 with a 3.21 ERA in the first half of the season, he finished with a 5.17 ERA in the second half. It was the second year in a row where his first half stats were better than his second half stats, which may or may not be a trend. He was victimized by the long ball in the second half of the season, allowing 19 home runs in just 92.1 innings. The Brewers will slot him second in their rotation behind Ben Sheets and hope that he can find his good stuff for an entire season.

2006

Capuano rode some of the best run support in the league to an 18-12 record in 2005, despite a 3.99 ERA. Many owners will overpay for him because of the wins, but they mask the fact that he was otherwise not much better than league average.

2005

Capuano was a solid back of the rotation starter in 2004 when he was healthy. His biggest problem was the long ball, giving up 18 home runs in just 83 1/3 innings pitched. The Brewers will slot him as the fourth or fifth starter to begin the year.

2004

Capuano came back from Tommy John surgery in 2002 to put up decent numbers in 2003, going 9-5, 3.34 in 23 starts at a hitter-friendly Triple-A park in Tucson, then putting up a 4.64 ERA and a fine 1.15 WHIP in 33 innings of swingman duty for the D-Backs. He's a prime candidate to make Milwaukee's rotation in 2004 after going over in the Richie Sexson deal.

2003

Capuano, 24, went a promising 4-1, 2.72 in six starts at Triple-A early last season before going down with a severely torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching arm. Capuano was considered probably the best rotation prospect in the Arizona organization before his injury. He won't be back until June 2003 at the earliest, and he'll rehab in the minors when he does return.
