Brewers' Jake Cousins: Cleared for NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (biceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday and included on Milwaukee's NLDS roster, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

President of baseball operations David Stearns said earlier in the week that Cousins was expected to be available against Atlanta, and the right-hander is now officially on the roster. The 27-year-old should fill a high-leverage role for the Brewers after posting a 2.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 44:19 K:BB over 30 innings this season, especially with setup man Devin Williams (hand) sidelined.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Available for NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (biceps) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Friday prior to the Brewers' National League Divisional Series with Atlanta, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

President of baseball operations David Stearns said that Cousins is "good to go" for the upcoming playoff series. The reliever has been on the 10-day IL since Sept. 25, but his return is a welcome one after he generated a 2.70 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 30 appearances this season.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Starts rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (biceps) reported to Triple-A Nashville for a rehab appearance Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Cousins is then expected to rejoin the Brewers and continue to face live hitters in hopes of being activated ahead of the NLDS, which begins Friday. The 27-year-old has a 2.70 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 44:19 K:BB over 30 innings this season, and he could play a significant role in the playoffs with setup man Devin Williams out indefinitely with a fractured hand.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Likely to return for NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (biceps) is expected to return for the NLDS against Atlanta, which begins Oct. 8, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Cousins has been sidelined with a strained right biceps since Saturday and will be out for the remainder of the regular season. However, Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns said Friday that the right-hander should be back in action in time for the postseason. The 27-year-old made 30 appearances this year and recorded a 2.70 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 30 innings.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Out with biceps strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins landed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right biceps Saturday.

With just nine days left on the schedule, the move ends Cousins' regular season. Whether he has a chance to return during the playoffs is unknown. He'll finish his rookie season with a 2.70 ERA in 30 innings of relief, with his 35.2 percent strikeout rate proving to be more than enough to overcome a 15.2 percent walk rate. Miguel Sanchez was recalled to take his spot in the bullpen.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Continues coming through
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins tossed a scoreless eighth inning and picked up his sixth hold of the season in Wednesday's victory over the Giants.

With setup man Devin Williams unavailable Wednesday manager Craig Counsell turned to Cousins, and although he allowed a double and walked a batter, he also prevented either runner from crossing the plate while picking up two strikeouts. Cousins' 17-appearance scoreless streak was snapped in late August, but he has still given up just two earned runs over 24 innings out of the Brewers' bullpen this season.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (illness) was activated off the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday.

Cousins tested positive for the virus at the end of July, but his battle with the illness evidently wasn't a particularly long one. The Brewers will be quite happy to see him back in the bullpen, as he's had a dominant start to his big-league career, striking out 20 batters in 14.1 scoreless innings of work while allowing just four hits and five walks.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Awaiting activation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins could be reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list as early as Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Cousins landed on the COVID-19 IL at the end of July after he tested positive for the virus, but he's now cleared re-entry testing. While the righty won't return for Monday's series opener against the Cubs, he has a strong chance to rejoin the bullpen ahead of Tuesday's contest.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday.

Per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Cousins has tested positive for the virus himself. That indicates he'll miss more than just a day or two, though exactly when he'll return is unclear.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Collects first big-league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (1-0) picked up the win in a 5-0 victory over the Mets during the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader, striking out one in a perfect inning of relief.

The rookie worked the fifth inning as the first man out of the bullpen in relief of Brett Anderson, and with the Brewers already holding a 2-0 lead, Cousins was rewarded with his first MLB win. The 26-year-old has yet to allow a hit, much less a run, through his first six big-league appearances with a sharp 12:3 K:BB in 7.1 innings.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Gaining trust in late innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins retired one of the three batters he faced Tuesday but recorded his first career hold in the Brewers' 2-1 win over the Cubs.

Cousins entered the contest in the seventh inning with two outs and a runner on first base when reliever Brent Suter checked out of the game. The rookie didn't make things easy on himself by walking Willson Contreras and then hitting Javier Baez with a pitch to load the bases, but he was able to extinguish the threat by striking out Ian Happ on four pitches. Though Tuesday's outing wasn't the smoothest for Cousins, manager Craig Counsell's willingness to use him in a big spot speaks to how quickly the 27-year-old has gained the skipper's trust. Cousins was making just his third big-league appearance after he was utterly dominant in his first two outings, striking out nine while allowing no runs, no hits and one walk across four innings.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Contract selected by Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins had his contract selected by the Brewers on Monday.

The right-hander will join the Brewers for his first taste of major-league action after receiving a promotion to Triple-A Nashville in late May. Cousins began the season at Double-A Biloxi and has a 2.55 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 30:5 K:BB across 17.2 innings between the two minor-league levels. Zach Godley was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
