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.
