Welcome Back To The Show Chris Capuano

What an amazing story, after having a second Tommy John surgery and not pitching in a MLB game since 2007, Chris Capuano is back. After last nights Brewers win (probably the best of the season thanks to Gallardo/Hart) the Brewers purchased Chris's contract from AAA Nashville. Cappy actually pitched last night for the Sounds, pitching 4 scoreless innings before being pulled to catch a plane. Chris is not on the 40 man roster so the Brewers will have to make two moves, one to clear a 40 man spot and another to clear a 25 man spot. Estrada, Axford and Braddock all have options, but they have pitched very well. Suppan and Vargas could be DFA options. It will be interesting to see what they do. The other question is does Capunao start or come out of the pen? Perhaps he takes Parra's spot in the rotation after Manny starts tonight. We'll see.

Today May 29th, Capuano had an out clause in his contract that he could become a free agent if not called up to the big leagues. And with how well Chris pitched at A+ Brevard County and AAA Nashville (3-1, 1.77 ERA, 33 K's, 4 BB's in 6 starts) it was obvious that the Brewers would promote him. It's a tremendous story of courage, guts and never giving up for Chris Capuano to make it all the way back. A lot of guys have come back from one Tommy John surgery, not many at all make it back from a second. The last time Chris pitched in a Brewers uniform? September 28th, 2007 vs the San Diego Padres. 2007 was a tough year for Chris, but he was very good in 2005 and 2006. Even making the NL All-Star team in 06'. Cappy has always been a fan favorite in Milwaukee because of his performance, intensity and tremendous work ethic. And to make it back he had to use all of those attributes. Welcome back Chris, we missed you. When he makes his first appearance at Miller Park I expect a long standing ovation.
