Former All-Star left-hander Chris Capuano has been added to the roster at Class A Brevard County and is scheduled to make his first start of the season on Tuesday night against Clearwater, according to Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash.
Capuano is attempting to make it back to the Major Leagues following a second Tommy John elbow reconstructive surgery. He had his first in 2002 while he was an Arizona D-backs farmhand, then had another in May 2008 with the Brewers.
He has not pitched in the Majors since 2007 but did pitch in six Minor League games at the end of last season. Capuano was an early bright spot in big league camp this spring before a setback forced him to start from scratch.
