More on Capuano

Brewers Bar points out that next season the Brewers must either offer Chris Capuano salary arbitration or allow him to become a free agent. The key is that the minimum amount they can offer him is $3M - a 20% reduction from this year's salary. It is highly unlikely that they would do that, especially given the salary climate they are in with other players. Therefore, Capuano will be free to shop his services around to other clubs. There are a whole bunch of teams that would probably take a chance on a left handed starter who is three years removed from an 18 win season with a fresh tendon in his elbow for somewhere in the $1-$1.5M range. If he pitches again in the Majors, it will most likely not be in a Brewers uniform.
