Capuano's called up, to join Brewers Saturday

MILWAUKEE — Nearly 30 months since his last Major League appearance, lefty Chris Capuano will rejoin the Brewers on Saturday at Miller Park.


Capuano — whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Nashville — hasn’t pitched in the big leagues since his last start of the 2007 season and has been rehabbing the second Tommy John surgery of his career. After seven Minor League starts, Capuano has finally made it back to the Majors.

Brewers officials announced the move after Friday’s 2-0 victory over the Mets. However, a corresponding roster move was not announced at the time.

With Capuano not being on the Brewers’ 40-man roster, the move will mean more than simply sending someone from the 25-man roster down to the Minors.
