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.
