Chris Capuano to make rehab start for Triple-A Albuquerque Wednesday

USA TODAY Sports

Capuano has allowed five runs in 4⅔ innings in three games, including one start, for the Dodgers this season.

Chris Capuano will make his minor league rehab start on Wednesday with Triple-A Albuquerque, the Isotopes announced on Monday. The start will put Capuano in line to start either May 6 or 7 against the Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium.

Capuano is on the disabled list with a strained left calf, an injury suffered on Apr. 16 in a start against the Padres. Capuano had a platelet-rich plasma injection into his calf on Apr. 18, and has been rehabbing at Dodger Stadium ever since. He threw 34 pitches in two simulated innings against Dodgers batters on Saturday in preparation for the minor league rehab start.

The Dodgers could have sent Capuano to either Stockton with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga or to Albuquerque, who will play the Memphis Redbirds of the Cardinals' system. Most players tend not to care the opponent during rehab games, but Capuano is unique.

"I would probably lean toward going to Albuquerque, with Memphis in town, just to get the highest level of competition possible," Capuano said Saturday. "But it probably comes down to logistics."

The Dodgers have used nine starting pitchers so far this season.
