Astros pitcher Jose Capellan, who played for the Greenville Braves years ago, pitched five scoreless innings against the Braves today in his first official start of the year.
After bouncing around the league with several teams, he signed a minor league contract with Houston in January. He’s fighting for a spot on the roster.
I photographed Jose in Greenville, and for years had a photo of him hanging on my home office wall. It was a kick to see him again.
