Prior to tonight's game, the Brewers made a roster move, placing left-hander Chris Capuano on the 15-day DL with left elbow soreness. Capuano had pitched in last night's game and allowed two runs in an inning of work. The injury is concerning considering that it is Capuano's left elbow, which has already been reconstructed twice through Tommy John surgery.

Early indications are that the elbow is just inflammed, and there's not much concern that the injury is too bad. The immediate plan for Capuano is to rest for a few days and receive treatment, and then re-evaluate from there. The team could also elect to have Capuano undergo an MRI to make sure there's no additional damage in the elbow.

In a corresponding move, the Brewers recalled David Goforth from Triple-A Colorado Springs prior to the game. This is Goforth's second stint with the Brewers this season. His first didn't go too well, as he posted a 7.20 ERA and 6.09 FIP in five innings over four appearances. In Colorado Springs this season, he has posted a 3.93 ERA and 4.23 FIP over 18.1 innings in 13 appearances. Goforth is in Atlanta tonight and available to pitch if needed.
