The Yankees have outrighted lefty pitcher Chris Capuano to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after he cleared waivers. He was designated for assignment by the team on Wednesday.

It’s the latest saga in what has been a busy season for Capuano:

  • April 4: Placed on the DL with a strained right quad
  • May 17: Activated from the DL
  • June 1: Demoted to Yankees’ bullpen
  • July 28: Re-inserted into Yankees’ rotation
  • July 29: Designated for assignment
  • July 31: Outrighted to Triple-A
  • August 12: Contract purchased by the Yankees
  • August 15: Designated for assignment
  • August 18: Contract purchased by the Yankees
  • August 22: Designated for assignment
  • August 24: Re-signed to a one-year contract by the Yankees
  • August 26: Designated for assignment
  • August 28: Outrighted to Triple-A

If you’re counting, that’s four DFA’s for the 37-year-old. Capuano has pitched 35 innings at the big league level this season, compiling a 7.71 ERA with a 32/20 K/BB ratio.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
