Indians bullpen snapshot

2/1/2013

The Cleveland Indians added some potential depth for the bullpen Thursday by inking veteran Matt Capps to a minor league contract with an invite to big-league spring training. Capps has experience closing, having notched 138 saves over seven-plus seasons, but spent much of last season on the disabled list with a sore shoulder, making just 30 appearances.

The Indians will start the season with Chris Perez as the closer and fellow right-hander Vinnie Pestano the main setup man. After that the roles aren't entirely clear, nor are the names that will head to Cleveland come April.
