Chris Capuano: Comeback Kid?

Chris Capuano

Earlier this week, Manny Parra was ushered out of the starting rotation.  That paved a path for Milwaukee Brewers’ Chris Capuano, who starts Saturday against Pittsburgh.

“When I step onto the mound tomorrow, it will be a feeling of freedom,” said Capuano. “It’s a feeling of release. I can get let go. That’s truly the time you can enjoy the fruits of your labor.”

Three years of intense labor, to be exact. After rehabbing from not one, but two Tommy John’s surgeries, Capuano was placed in relief duty, making 15 relief appearances this season and going 1-2 with an ERA of 3.54. While the bullpen work has prepared the lefty for longer stretches, nothing is sweeter than getting back to the starting spot he has been eyeing all along.
