Chris Capuano designated for assignment by the Yankees


Chris Capuano failed to make it out of the first inning in Tuesday’s start and now the Yankees have decided to part ways with the veteran left-hander, designating him for assignment.

Capuano pitched reasonably well for the Red Sox and Yankees last season, but he allowed 26 runs in 31 innings this year while making $5 million.

At age 36 he’s nearing the end of the line, but another team could give Capuano a look as a long reliever and spot starter. He posted a 4.16 ERA from 2010-2014, with a sub-4.60 ERA each year.
