Pirates' Capps will pitch vs. Yankees this weekend

NEW YORK -- No ruling will be made on Pirates closer Matt Capps' appeal of a four-game suspension until early next week, meaning he can pitch this weekend against the New York Yankees.

Capps was suspended for hitting the Milwaukee Brewers' Prince Fielder with a pitch May 5. He argued then, and again today in meeting with MLB vice president Bob Watson, that he did not throw at Fielder intentionally.

"Thought I did a pretty good job," Capps said, laughing. "Kept my composure."

A ruling is expected Monday or Tuesday.

He added that he was delighted to have the chance to pitch at Yankee Stadium.

"Music to my ears," Capps said. "I'm ready for it."

Salomon Torres would have been the Pirates' closer for the weekend if Capps had not been available.
