Dodgers Place Capuano on Disabled List
Decorated Soldier Reunited With Family During Rose ParadePASADENA (CBSLA.com) — A decorated soldier originally from Michigan was reunited with his family Tuesday in a heartwarming moment captured by cameras and witnessed by millions during the 124th Tournament of Roses Parade. Army Sgt. First Class Eric Pazz was riding on the “Canines of Courage” float sponsored by Natural Balance Pet Foods Tuesday when he was reunited with his wife Miriam and four-year-old son, Eric Jr. Both were watching the parade from the grandstands after winning seats. They were under the impression that 32-year-old Pazz, who was deployed, was still in Afghanistan. Video of the parade shows the heartwarming scene as Eric Jr. runs toward his father and the announcer says, “he sees Daddy. he had no idea.” After the reunion, his family joined him on the float for the remainder of the parade.
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed pitcher Chris Capuano on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of a left shoulder strain.
Shortstop Hanley Ramirez was reinstated from the DL and started against San Diego on Tuesday night.
He made three rehab starts for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga after being on the DL since May 4 with a strained left hamstring. Ramirez had previously appeared in just four games with the Dodgers this season.
He missed the first 25 games of the season while recovering from right thumb surgery after getting hurt playing for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic title game.
Capuano is 1-4 with a 5.45 ERA in eight games this season.
Originally thinking it was a triceps strain, Capuano suffered the injury during his last start, in Anaheim.
Stephen Fife was recalled to replace Capuano in the rotation, and he got his first major league win on Monday.
