Los Angeles Dodgers re-assigned Chris Capuano to the minor leagues


Game two of this National League Championship series is set for this afternoon and the Los Angeles Dodgers have made another roster move.

The move was made before yesterday’s loss, which afterwards they activated right handed reliever Carlos Marmol who should be used out of the bullpen today. Capuano picked up a victory last Sunday against the Atlanta Braves.

The Dodgers won that game by a huge seven points but only managed to pitch three innings. He didn’t give up a hit, but he walked three batters but also struck out three. It was his only playoff appearance after eight years in the league as the 35 year old left hander heads back home for the rest of the year.

The team is choosing to keep one left hander in the bullpen for the NLCS, that pitcher happens to be J.P. Howell. With Capuano being sent down to the minor leagues he’s set to become a free agent in 2014.

The 35 year old may be able to pick up a minor league contract but crack the opening day roster if he performs well in Spring Training. He could have at least two or three seasons left in that 35 year old arm.
