Chris Capuano throws 76 pitches, allows two runs in rehab start.

Chris CapuanoChris Capuano‘s first — and likely last — rehabilitation start is over.

The left-hander allowed two runs in 5 ⅓ innings for the Albuquerque Isotopes on Wednesday, walking one and striking out four. Capuano also grounded out to the shorstop and pitcher and had no apparent issues with his strained left calf.

Capuano hadn’t experienced any pain in his calf recently, though he had to miss three starts after aggravating the injury on April 16.

His next start could come Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium, or on Monday if Dodgers manager Don Mattingly chooses to give Josh Beckett an extra day of rest.

Capuano is 0-1 with a 9.61 earned-run average (five runs in 4 ⅔ innings) with the Dodgers this season.
