Red Sox looking at veteran lefty

This past weekend the Boston Red Sox found out they would be without the services of pitcher Ryan Dempster in 2014. Since that time many have speculated whether the Red Sox would bother to sign someone else or just head into the season with what they have. Well it appears the Red Sox are at least poking around the free agent market. According to Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal the Red Sox are in talks with lefty Chris Capuano.

The veteran pitcher spent last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers and had a record of 4-7 in 20 starts. He has an earned run average of 4.26 just a tick under his career ERA.

Capuano could be a great fit with Boston as long as fans realize what they are getting if they sign him. He is a .500 pitcher whose ERA will be around 4.00. He will be a cheaper version of Dempster from the left hand side. He would also be a great insurance policy if injuries hit the rotation, which is probably just a matter of time.
