The New York Yankees have designated left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano for assignment, according to Jack Curry of the YES Network. The team has also promoted Caleb Cotham to take Capuano place on the active roster.
Not a surprise after last night, but Capuano will be designated for assignment.— Jack Curry (@JackCurryYES) July 29, 2015
Capuano, 36, has struggled this season, posting a 6.97 ERA in 31 innings. He had a very bad outing yesterday, giving up five earned runs on three hits and five walks in just 2/3 of an inning against the Texas Rangers.
The Yankees signed the veteran to a one-year, $5 million deal in the offseason.
