NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Well that didn’t take long.

Left-hander Chris Capuano has been put on the New York Yankees major league roster, a day after he was acquired from the Colorado Rockies.

Capuano will start Saturday against Toronto, with Shane Greene pushed back to Sunday.

New York designated right-hander Chris Leroux for assignment on Friday to clear a roster spot.

The 35-year-old Capuano was 1-1 with a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances for Boston, which released him July 1. He was 1-0 with a 2.79 ERA in four starts for the Rockies’ Triple-A and Double-A affiliates.

Capuano, a 2006 NL All-Star, pitched with Arizona, Milwaukee, the New York Mets, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston in parts of 10 major league seasons.

Earlier this month, the Yankees obtained pitcher Brandon McCarthy from Arizona and third baseman Chase Headley from San Diego.
