The Yankees announced Thursday evening that they have acquired veteran left-hander Chris Capuano from the Rockies for cash considerations.

This is just the latest move by Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, who has added the likes of Brandon McCarthy, Jeff Francis, and David Huff as the club attempts to get by after a number of injuries in their starting rotation. Capuano originally began the season in a relief role with the Red Sox, but he was given his release at the end of June after posting a 4.55 ERA and 29/15 K/BB ratio over 31 2/3 innings. The 35-year-old quickly latched on with the Rockies and posted a 2.79 ERA over four starts in Triple-A.
