Capuano owns a 4.09 ERA, 1.73 WHIP, and 10:6 K:BB ratio in 11 innings over eight appearances out of the Brewers' bullpen this season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Capuano has eaten a bunch of innings for the Brewers this season, but he has not been particularly effective, allowing 19 runners to reach base in his 11 frames and giving up at least an earned run in four of his eight outings.

Capuano was informed Monday that he made the Brewers' Opening Day roster, Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

When Capuano signed a minor league deal with the Brewers in January, expectations were understandably low, but the 37-year-old has reinvented himself as a reliever and will open the season as an option out of the bullpen. Capuano played for the Brewers from 2004-07, making 120 starts but only 18 relief appearances. He's had an entire spring to work on the transition, however, and appears confident as Opening Day approaches. "This is the first spring where I've had more of a reliever routine, which has been good because I've been able to practice it," Capuano said. "I've just been happy with the results I've had from my off-season training," he continued. "It's helped my arm really bounce back and feel good this spring. That's all you can do as a player. I've felt better and better every time out."

Capuano signed a minor league contract with the Brewers on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It's a case of deja vu for Brewer fans, as Capuano is making his return to Milwaukee after spending the last five years with four different teams. The 37-year-old's best days are behind him, as he posted a horrid 7.97 ERA and 1.7 K/BB last season with the Yankees, but he could find a spot with the rebuilding Brewers as a veteran leader in the rotation or bullpen if he can post strong numbers in spring training.

Capuano's contract was purchased from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He's bounced between the majors and Triple-A multiple times in the past month, with Monday's news landing Capuano on the Yankees' roster once again. It's unclear what role Capuano will serve moving forward considering his struggles this year --- he's posting a 7.71 ERA in 35 innings with New York this season.

Capuano cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Capuano has now been designated for assignment four times in the past 30 days, so it's little surprise to see him accept his assignment once again. The 37-year-old has struggled in the majors this season, pitching to a 7.71 ERA in 35 innings, but could end up earning another promotion when rosters expand Sept. 1.

Capuano pitched a scoreless inning in relief in Friday's loss to the Orioles.

Capuano has actually experienced a big improvement since transitioning to the bullpen, allowing just one run in 4.1 innings with four strikeouts. The lefty still doesn't present much in the way of fantasy value though, as he appears to not be ready for higher-leverage situations and likely won't move back to the rotation anytime soon.

Capuano has been moved to the Yankees' bullpen, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Capuano has been a disaster in three starts this season, posting a 6.39 ERA as a starter. He'll move to the pen with the Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) set to rejoin the rotation Wednesday.
