Chris Capuano was given a platelet-rich plasma injection for his injured elbow on Friday.

He'll continue to rehab his flexor strain at the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona. There is no timetable for Capuano's return to Milwaukee. He's undergone Tommy John surgery twice in his career and the left-hander will turn 38 years old next month.

Brewers transferred LHP Chris Capuano to the 60-day disabled list.

Nothing has changed with the status of the veteran southpaw, this was simply done as a procedural move to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Will Middlebrooks. Capuano is recovering from a flexor strain in his left elbow and will be sidelined for at least another four weeks.

Chris Capuano (elbow) will be sidelined for another 4-6 weeks after being diagnosed with a flexor strain.

Capuano has already been on the shelf for a month and he's now essentially back to square one. The southpaw has already undergone two Tommy John surgeries and will turn 38 in August, so his baseball future is looking pretty cloudy.

Chris Capuano is experiencing renewed elbow discomfort.

Capuano is traveling back to Milwaukee from the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona and will visit a specialist Sunday. They'll probably run an MRI. The veteran left-hander has been on the disabled list May 26 with what was originally labeled elbow inflammation.

Chris Capuano (elbow) threw a successful bullpen session on Tuesday.

He'll throw a simulated game in Los Angeles on Friday. If that goes according to plan, he'll then begin a short rehab assignment. The veteran left-hander has done a serviceable job in middle relief this year with a 4.13 ERA over 16 outings.

Brewers placed LHP Chris Capuano on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation.

Capuano must have hurt himself in Wednesday's outing against Atlanta. A starter for most of his career, the veteran has spent most of his last two seasons working in middle relief. Capuano has already undergone two Tommy John surgeries so his elbow issues are well-documented. David Goforth will take his place on the active roster.

Brewers selected the contract of LHP Chris Capuano from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Capuano was already told he made the Opening Day roster so this was just a formality. The veteran allowed just two runs in 13 1/3 innings this spring. This will be his second stint with Milwaukee after playing there from 2004-2010.
Sat, Apr 2, 2016 11:20:00 PM

Chris Capuano was informed that he has made the Brewers' Opening Day roster.

It's an expected decision, as Capuano has posted a 1.69 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 innings this spring. The 37-year-old was a rotation staple with the Brewers from 2004-2007, but he'll function as a left-handed bullpen arm this time around.

Chris Capuano gave up one hit in two scoreless innings of relief against the Cubs on Friday.

Capuano, a non-roster invitee, allowed only a bunt single while walking none and striking out two. The veteran left-handers owns a 1.69 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio over 10 2/3 innings of work this spring. He appears to have a strong chance to win a spot in Milwaukee’s bullpen.

Brewers signed LHP Chris Capuano to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Capuano was pounded for 38 runs -- 36 earned -- in 40 2/3 innings last season with the Yankees, finishing with a brutal 7.97 ERA. And he wasn't very good in 2014 either. But the Brewers have embarked on an aggressive organizational rebuild and the veteran southpaw will be given the opportunity to claim a spot in their Opening Day rotation this spring.

Yankees purchased the contract of LHP Chris Capuano from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Capuano has been pushed off and then added back to the Yankees' 40-man roster several different times over the last five weeks. The veteran left-hander owns a 7.71 ERA in 35 innings this season at the major league level.
Mon, Sep 7, 2015 11:10:00 AM

Yankees sent LHP Chris Capuano outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The merry-go-round for Capuano continues. He has the opportunity to declare free agency if he wants.

Yankees designated LHP Chris Capuano for assignment

They needed to reinforce the bullpen after Capuano allowed six runs over two innings Tuesday. It's the fourth time he's been designated for assignment this season.
Wed, Aug 26, 2015 12:28:00 PM

Yankees signed LHP Chris Capuano to a one-year contract.

Capuano was pushed off the Yankees' 40-man roster on Saturday, but New York has already called him back with CC Sabathia (knee) landing on the disabled list. Capuano, 37, has a 6.55 ERA in 33 innings (four starts, 13 relief appearances) this season for the Yanks. He'll presumably pitch in a long relief role.
