Farewell (Again), Claudio Vargas

And the loser in the whole Capuano promotion turns out to be our old friend Claudio Vargas. I assume that Vargas just edged out Jeff Suppan for the honors of who would be the odd man out in that bullpen, but again something about that hefty contract of Suppan's makes it hard to let him go... for some reason. But I can't really argue about Vargas getting designated for assignment, as he had a 7.32 ERA in 19.2 innings of work this season. Vargas really never saw that much time, he again was more reserved for the mop up role.

As for Capuano, he's coming up to Milwaukee today, but still no word on what his defined role will be. The Brewers do not currently have a starter scheduled for their Wednesday game against the Marlins, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Cappy get the nod then.
