Dodgers decline options for Capuano, Ellis

The Sports NetworkOctober 31, 2013 

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Thursday that the club has declined the 2014 contract options on both pitcher Chris Capuano and infielder Mark Ellis.

Capuano finished an injury-plagued year just 4-7 with a 4.26 earned run average in 24 games -- 20 starts -- for the NL West champions. The 35-year-old left-hander departs LA having gone 16-19 over the last two seasons.

Ellis hit .270 with six home runs, 13 doubles and drove in 48 runs over 126 games in 2013, his second with the Dodgers.
