LOS ANGELES -- Chris Capuano is getting closer to returning to the Dodgers, and the left-hander is scheduled to make a Minor League rehab start on Wednesday.

Capuano will start for either Triple-A Albuquerque or Class A Rancho Cucamonga and could be activated from the disabled list as early as May 6 to start against the D-backs. He has been on the disabled list since April 17 with a strained left calf, but Capuano said he has not felt any discomfort while throwing.

"It's good that we've been able to take our time with this and hopefully just do it one time," said Capuano, one of seven Dodgers pitchers to spend time on the DL in 2013. "I haven't felt one thing this whole process."

Capuano threw a simulated game on Saturday at Dodger Stadium and said he "felt really good." He was scheduled to throw on Sunday but decided to throw a day earlier because the Dodgers have a day game Sunday.

While Capuano has not had any issues throwing, he's still working to be able to sprint off the mound and cover first without aggravating his calf.
