DENVER -- The Rockies sent veteran left-hander Chris Capuano, who had made three starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs after being released by the Red Sox, to the Yankees on Thursday for cash considerations, the club announced.

Capuano, 35, was 1-1 with a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances with the Red Sox before being released on July 1. The Rockies signed him July 4 in the hopes he could build up his innings and possibly help an injury-depleted starting rotation.

Capuano went 1-0 with a 3.07 ERA with Colorado Springs. His last start, on Monday in Nashville, was his best. He went seven innings and gave up two runs on four hits. Capuano pitched 14 2/3 innings and had 14 strikeouts against three walks at Colorado Springs.

The Yankees could use Capuano as a starter or reliever.
