Pittsburgh Pirates Closer Report: Matt Capps Makes Strong Comeback

Matt Capps has been bothered by what he called a "sharp pain" in his elbow and it kept him out of action for the past eight days.

Tuesday night he finally came back and looked shaky, giving up a single and walking the bases loaded, but struck out two and got out of the innings untouched.

John Grabow will not be the closer as Capps will resume full closer duties.

Capps closed out the win against St. Louis on Wednesday and notched his sixth save. It didn't look like he would get the chance, but Jesse Chavez, after getting one out, put a couple of guys on base and...enter Capps.

Capps looked strong, so you should have full confidence in starting him.
