Dodgers Decline Options On Mark Ellis, Capuano

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (FOX 11/AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have declined to exercise their 2014 options on infielder Mark Ellis and pitcher Chris Capuano, making both free agents.

Ellis had a $5.75 million option, and he will be paid a $1 million buyout. The 36-year-old second baseman batted .264 with 13 home runs and 79 RBIs in two seasons with the team. He's expected to be replaced by Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero, who signed a $28 million, four-year deal.

Capuano had an $8 million option, and will be paid a $1 million buyout. The 35-year-old left-hander didn't make the roster for the National League championship series. He was 4-7 with a 4.26 ERA while pitching in 24 games this season, including 20 starts. Capuano was on the disabled list twice during the season.

Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett comprise the Dodgers' rotation for next year.
