Chris Capuano


The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Capuano's next start for the Brewers will be moved from Saturday to Friday against the Atlanta Braves.


Capuano worked the first shutout and complete game of his career Sunday, limiting the Chicago Cubs to five hits and striking out six in a 9-0 Milwaukee win. The 27-year-old left-hander has allowed just three runs in his last three starts, and he improved to 4-2 with a 2.36 ERA that ranks ninth among National League hurlers.


Capuano agreed Friday to a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers that is worth $450,000 if he is on the 40-man roster and $272,000 if he is in the minors. The 27-year-old left-hander went 18-12 with a 3.99 ERA last season, posting career highs in wins, ERA, games started (35), and strikeouts (176).


Pitching in one of the league's most hitter-friendly parks, Capuano silenced the Colorado Rockies' bats, scattering six hits over seven shutout innings in Wednesday's 2-0 victory. The Brewers' lefthander matched a season high with eight strikeouts and did not walk a batter.


Despite turning in the longest outing of his major league career, Capuano was unable to notch a win in Wednesday's disappointing 1-0 loss to the Washington Nationals. The Brewers' lefthander went 8.1 strong innings, allowing just one run on five hits. He struck out six and did not walk a batter.
