(1090 The Fan) — The Seattle Mariners are reportedly talking with free-agent left-hander Chris Capuano about a possible deal.
CBS Sports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman says, “there still may be a difference of opinion over the price but discussions are ongoing, according to people familiar with the talks.” The veteran lefty is reportedly after a two-year deal.
Heyman also notes Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik knows Capuano from his best seasons in Milwaukee.
Capuano, who has played ten seasons in Major League Baseball, started 20 games for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2013 and tallied four wins and seven losses. In 105.2 innings he maintained a decent WHIP of 1.41 and struck out almost three and a half batters for every walk or hit batsman he issued.
The 35-year-old was an All-Star for the Brewers in 2006.
