Chris Capuano activated from DL, Alex Castellanos optioned

Jeff Gross

The Dodgers will carry 13 pitchers for the time being.

The Dodgers activated Chris Capuano from the disabled list in between games on Wednesday's doubleheader with the Yankees, as the left-hander will start Game 2. To make room, the Dodgers optioned Alex Castellanos to Triple-A Albuquerque.

That means the Dodgers will carry 13 pitches for the time being, with Chris Withrow getting a reprieve. He will stay as part of an eight-man bullpen.

Capuano is 1-4 with a 5.45 ERA in eight games, including six starts, this season, with 24 strikeouts, 13 walks and six home runs allowed in 37 innings. He missed 18 games while sidelined with a lat strain. Capuano threw four scoreless innings on just one hit and two walks with five strikeouts in his lone minor league rehab start on Friday with Triple-A Albuquerque.

It's likely Capuano will be limited on Wednesday, as he only threw 58 pitches on Friday.

Castellanos was 2-for-9 (.222) with a double in four games with the Dodgers. He started Game 1 in left field on Wednesday and was 0-for-2. He was pinch hit for in the seventh inning.
