Capuano lost in his return to Boston on Friday.

Capuano pitched 6 1-3 innings for New York, allowing four runs and eight hits. He began the season with the BoSox, who dumped him in late June.

Capuano made his Yankees debut Saturday.

Capuano allowed two runs in six innings. He gets to face his former team, the Red Sox next, so revenge will be on his mind. Boston dumped him July 1.

Capuano has been put on the New York Yankees major league roster, a day after he was acquired from the Colorado Rockies.

The 35-year-old Capuano was 1-1 with a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances for Boston, which released him July 1. He was four starts at Triple-A and Double-A for the Rockies.

The New York Yankees have acquired Capuano from the Colorado Rockies in their latest trade with a team from the NL West.

Capuano started the season with Boston and went 1-1 with a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances. The Red Sox released him on July 1 and he signed with Colorado. He made four total starts in Triple-A and Double-A for the Rockies. Capuano has pitched with Arizona, Milwaukee, the Mets, the Dodgers and Boston in parts of 10 major league seasons. He was an NL All-Star in 2006.

Capuano has been designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox to clear a spot on the 25-man roster for right-handed starter Clay Buchholz.

Capuano was 1-1 with a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances for Boston this season. He started strong, not allowing a run in his first 12 appearances of the season but struggled recently. In his last five relief appearances, Capuano had given up 10 earned runs, including five to the Mariners in Monday's series opener.

A person familiar with the deal says the Boston Red Sox have reached a contract agreement with Capuano. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because completion of the deal was pending a physical.

The 35-year-old Capuano was 4-7 with a 4.26 ERA last season for the Dodgers. He went on the disabled list twice and was limited to 24 appearances, 20 of them starts. In 2012, he made an NL-high 33 starts and was 12-12 with a career-best 3.72 ERA for Los Angeles.
