Closer Matt Capps made his final rehabilitation appearance last night for Class AA Altoona -- a scoreless inning, with a walk and strikeout against visiting Portland -- and will stay there today for a side session.
He will fly to Milwaukee to join the Pirates tomorrow.
Capps had been on the DL with right shoulder bursitis, and he was mass-dropped several weeks ago. His rehab performance wasn't bad, all things considered. Capps pitched three innings for Altoona and he didn't allow a hit. He struck out five and walked one. Expect him to reclaim the closing gig quickly, though perhaps not immediately.
Also, Richie Zisk bobblehead night is almost here. It's a handsome little fella. Good seats still available.
