News: Capuano agreed to a one-year contract with the Yankees on Tuesday.
Impact: Capuano will return to New York after making 12 starts for the Yankees last season. As things stand, he will have a chance to open the season in the starting rotation, though he could eventually be forced to secure a spot during spring training.

News: Capuano is staying with the New York Yankees, just like fellow free agents Chase Headley and Chris Young. A person familiar with the negotiations says the left-hander has agreed to a $5 million, one-year contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the agreement had not yet been announced.
Impact: The 36-year-old started last season with Boston and had a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances. He was released July 1 and signed with Colorado three days later but never made it to the majors with the Rockies. New York purchased his contract July 24, and he was 2-3 with a 4.25 ERA in 12 starts for the Yankees.
