Today In Brewer History: Recapturing Capuano

On this day one year ago, Chris Capuano completed an epic comeback with a start against the Marlins. Capuano had been out of the major leagues since September of 2007, taking over two years to recover from his second Tommy John surgery. But on this day he returned to the mound, starting and pitching 3.2 innings. The results weren't anything to write home about (three runs allowed on seven hits, a walk and four strikeouts), but Capuano took a key step towards proving he was healthy and ready to contribute again.

Capuano received sporadic work out of the bullpen until September, when he made six starts and posted a 2.91 ERA over 34 innings. That was enough to land him a one year, $1.5 million deal with the Mets, where he's made ten starts and two relief appearances with a 5.19 ERA over 60.2 innings. He's on pace to make 29 starts for the first time since 2006, when he was an All Star as a Brewer.

With help from the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to 2002 Brewer Robert Machado, who turns 38.
