"He’s coming in as one of our starters," Cashman said.
Capuano went 2-3 with a 4.25 ERA in 12 starts for the Yankees last season after joining the team in late July.
"I can't expect Alex to be anything," Cashman said during a phone interview Tuesday with The Associated Press. "Even before the suspension, he wasn't the same player at third base on the defensive or offensive side.
"We look forward to him hopefully solidifying himself as a tremendous DH for us."
The New York Daily News published a report Monday citing a source saying Rodriguez is determined to regain his role as an everyday third baseman. However, New York re-signed Chase Headley to a four-year deal to be the team's starting third baseman.
"In his mind, he’s still the third baseman," the source said. “That was before (Headley was re-signed) today, anyway.
"Based on what he was being told by the Yankees, Alex believed he would get the chance to play third base, and he believes he can do it. He’s motivated by it because he loves to play the field."
Capuano, who went 3-4 with a 4.28 ERA in 12 starts for the Red Sox and Yankees, was considering playing in Japan prior to the deal being agreed on.
The Yankees re-signed Chase Headley on Monday to be the team's primary third baseman.
"In his mind, he’s still the third baseman," the person said Monday. "That was before (Headley was re-signed) today, anyway.
"Based on what he was being told by the Yankees, Alex believed he would get the chance to play third base, and he believes he can do it. He’s motivated by it because he loves to play the field.
"Whatever (poor) decisions he’s made, he’s still addicted to the game and he says he’s working hard to be ready. He’s said to me, ‘people are going to be surprised,’ meaning he’s convinced he still has game."
Campos was non-tendered by the club earlier in the season, but chose to return. The 21-year-old posted a 3.41 ERA over 87 innings in Class A last year.
