The Brewers beat the Marlins in a 7-1 rout in Sunday’s home finale, but the result was secondary on an emotional afternoon at Miller Park. For those who have yet to sift through the links on Brewers.com, here’s a bit of a recap:
Brewers lefty Chris Capuano takes his place in the starting rotation tonight with a return engagement against the Pirates, the team he beat in his most recent start on July 19. He’ll get a series of starts in a very important final five-plus weeks of the season. For Capuano, it’s a chance to showcase his ability heading into free agency. For the Brewers, it’s a chance to see whether he’s worth continuing to invest in.

For the third straight season, the Brewers are removing left-hander Manny Parra from the starting rotation.
Filling-in for the injured Doug Davis, Brewers left-hander Chris Capuano will make his second start of the season tonight as the Crew begins a four-game series in Pittsburgh. Here’s how they’ll line up behind him:
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.
