NEW YORK (AP) Newly acquired left-hander Chris Capuano will join the New York Yankees' rotation and take the spot of Chase Whitley, who is being moved to the bullpen.
Capuano will start Saturday against Toronto, with Shane Greene pushed back to Sunday. David Phelps, Brandon McCarthy are Hiroki Kuroda are New York's other starters, with only Kuroda left from the original rotation that was decimated by injuries to CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda.
"We're going with the guy that's a little bit more experienced. It doesn't mean that Chase won't have any more starts for us," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Friday, a day after Capuano was acquired from Colorado for cash.
