FORT MYERS, Fla. - Chris Capuano has had his first workout with the Boston Red Sox.

The team announced the left-hander's signing Saturday after he passed a physical. Capuano gets a one-year contract for $2.25 million after spending the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Joining the Red Sox is a homecoming for the pitcher who grew up in West Springfield, Mass. He said that played a part in his decision to sign with Boston.

The Red Sox plan to use Capuano in relief and as a sixth starter if the need arises for one.

Fenway Park is one of the stadiums where he hasn't pitched as a major leaguer, although he pitched and played left field there during a high school all-star game between teams from Massachusetts and Connecticut.
