FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - A person familiar with the deal says the Boston Red Sox have reached a contract agreement with left-hander Chris Capuano.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because completion of the deal was pending a physical.
The 35-year-old Capuano was 4-7 with a 4.26 ERA last season for the Dodgers. He went on the disabled list twice and was limited to 24 appearances, 20 of them starts. In 2012, he made an NL-high 33 starts and was 12-12 with a career-best 3.72 ERA for Los Angeles.
Capuano has spent his nine major league seasons in the NL.
The Red Sox wanted depth in their rotation after Ryan Dempster said Sunday he would not pitch in 2014. That still left them with five veteran starters.
