Yankees' Capuano (quad) about one month away from return


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Capuano hit the disabled list before Opening Day due to a strained right quadriceps. He was diagnosed with the injury in mid-March, so it appears the issue will keep him sidelined for about two months, if he hits his current timetable.


Yankees place pitchers Chris Capuano, Ivan Nova on DL


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Adam Warren likely to fill in as starter for Capuano


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) Yankees pitcher Adam Warren was considered an emergency starter for the team heading into spring training. Now, with Chris Capuano on the shelf until after opening day, Warren is likely to fill into the No. 5 role in the rotation, reports MLB.com.

"At this point, I'm not really thinking about it," the right-hander said. "I'm trying to get myself ready for the season. I'm still trying to get myself back in the swing of starting a little bit. But at the same time, it does put a little more meaning to it. You want to go out there and impress, but at the same time, I want to go out there and work on some things and get ready for the season as well, so it's kind of a mixture."


Yankees P Chris Capuano has PRP injection, will miss opener


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/12/2015) Yankees pitcher Chris Capuano had a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his strained right quad Thursday and likely will miss the first week or two of the season, according to MLB.com.

Yankees P Chris Capuano diagnosed with Grade 2 quadriceps injury


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) The Yankees announced left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano has a Grade 2 quadriceps injury which will likely place him on the disabled list to begin the 2015 season, according to MLB.com.

“I’d be surprised if he’s not down for a while,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said, via The Journal News.

Capuano injured his quad in Wednesday's 10-6 spring training loss to the Red Sox. Capuano sustained the injury when covering first base during the game. An MRI revealed the extent of the injury.  

Capuano was the favorite to open the season as the Yankees' fifth starter, though now it looks like the club will have to look elsewhere for that spot in the short term. 

“We’ll look at everyone, that’s the bottom line,” Girardi said. “Because we need to fill a spot now.”

Rothschild: Yankees pondering using a sixth starter in April and May


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Wednesday the team is considering using a sixth starter at times in April and May to help reduce a potential early strain on their rotation, per MLB.com. The Yankees have a stretch of 30 games in 31 days beginning April 17.

"It's a result of some of the stuff that's gone on over the last few years, not just here, but everywhere," Rothschild said. "We're aware of situations here and early in the season, we need to get these guys through these stretches. Being that possibly early in the spring, some of them aren't going to be able to throw a lot, we're going to need to build them up too and give them the extra days when we can."

CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Capuano are expected to make up the team's five-man rotation. However, Tanaka, Sabathia and Pineda were all injured last season, as the Yankees used 13 starting pitchers.

Bryan MitchellEsmil RogersAdam Warren and Chase Whitley are some of the other pitchers that will be stretched out this spring.

"It'd be nice to go through a season with five starters, but there's a good chance we're not going to," Rothschild said. "There's a good chance every team in baseball won't, so it doesn't hurt to see who might fit in as a sixth starter."
