Capuano, Dodgers reach agreement

The Los Angeles Dodgers and left-hander Chris Capuano reached agreement Friday on a two-year deal worth $10 million, a major-league source confirmed to

The deal includes a $1 million incentive package, the source said.

Capuano went 11-12 with a 4.55 ERA in 33 games (31 starts) with the New York Mets this year. He should slot fourth in the Los Angeles rotation, behind Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, and Ted Lilly. The fifth spot will likely belong to left-hander Dana Eveland or right-hander Nathan Eovaldi.

The Dodgers have been one of the most aggressive teams on the offseason market, even as the franchise itself is up for sale. General manager Ned Colletti reached deals with Capuano, catcher Matt Treanor, and infielders Mark Ellis and Adam Kennedy in advance of the winter meetings. Most notably, superstar center fielder Matt Kemp signed an eight-year, $160 million contract extension.
