Capuano actually did spend some time with the Red Sox this season, tossing 28 relief appearances for Boston, but he been more impressive since joining their hated rivals, the Yankees, and returning to a starting role. Overall this season, Capuano has posted a 4.35 ERA in 33 games (5 starts) but his 3.21 FIP shows that he has pitched better than his results suggest. He isn’t a star by any means but a team could do much worse than Capuano as their fifth starter.
