Capuano 'feeling great,' set for Triple-A rehab start

LOS ANGELES -- Chris Capuano threw a bullpen session and worked on his fielding to test his strained left calf on Monday at Dodger Stadium, and the left-hander is scheduled to make a Minor League rehab start on Wednesday.

Capuano had no issues bouncing off the mound to field bunts or sprinting to cover first in a workout before Monday's game against the Rockies. He's on track to start for Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday and then hopes to return to the Dodgers during a three-game series against the D-backs from May 6-8.

"I'm feeling great," Capuano said. "Every box has kind of been checked. Today was the last box. The calf feels good."

Capuano has been on the disabled list since April 17. He strained his calf running to cover first in the second inning of a start on April 16. The injury did not prevent Capuano from throwing, though, and he believes he will need just one rehab outing.
