Capps signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Thursday, which includes an invite to spring training, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Capps' 2013 was cut short after just six appearances at Triple-A Columbus, as arthroscopic shoulder surgery put him out of action. He also missed the second half of 2012 with shoulder inflammation, but despite the ongoing shoulder issues, it's clear the Indians still have some hope that the righty will return to form. In the first half of the 2012 season, Capps converted 14 of 15 save chances with a 4.50 K:BB ratio over 29.1 innings.
