  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Hits snag, but MRI clean

    Bukauskas (triceps) experienced a setback with his shoulder during his rehab appearance June 13 with Triple-A Nashville, but Brewers manager Pat Murphy said Monday that an MRI came back clean, MLB.com reports.

    Bukauskas has been on the injured list since April 14 with a right lat strain, with the team later reclassifying his injury as a right triceps strain. Though he was able to complete his scheduled inning in his first rehab outing with Nashville, Bukauskas reported significant discomfort in his shoulder the next day. Fortunately for Bukauskas, he doesn't look to be dealing with anything more than inflammation, and Murphy said that the right-hander will be able to resume throwing once the swelling subsides. If he's cleared to report back to Nashville shortly after he starts throwing again, Bukauskas could have a shot to return from the IL before the All-Star break.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Has upcoming bullpen

    Bukauskas (triceps) will throw a bullpen Friday, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.

    Bukauskas was transferred to the 60-day injured list May 10 due a right triceps strain that had originally been classified as a lat strain when he first hit the IL on April 14. If his bullpen session goes well, he could soon progress to what would figure to be a lengthy rehab assignment.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Brewers transferred Bukauskas (triceps) to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster. Bukauskas has been sidelined since mid-April with a right triceps strain and now won't be eligible to return until mid-June.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Dealing with triceps issue

    Bukauskas' injury has been reclassified as a right triceps strain, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Bukauskas was placed on the injured list Sunday with what had been referred to as a right lat strain, but further testing revealed the injury is actually to his triceps. There remains no timetable for his return, as more testing still needs to be done.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Out with lat strain

    The Brewers placed Bukauskas on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a right lat strain.

    Bukauskas picked up his first hold of the season Saturday in Baltimore after he allowed a hit and no runs over two-thirds of an inning, but he'll now be out for a least the next two weeks due to the lat injury. Jared Koenig will take his place in Milwaukee's bullpen.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Summoned from Triple-A

    The Brewers recalled Bukauskas from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    He'll join the Milwaukee bullpen as a replacement for Trevor Megill (concussion), who was moved to the 7-day injured list in a corresponding move. Bukauskas delivered a stellar 1.04 ERA in 8.2 innings during Cactus League play this spring before being optioned to Nashville, but he's expected to be deployed mostly in the middle innings or in lower-leverage spots while he's with Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Brewers optioned Bukauskas to Triple-A Nasvhille on Thursday.

    Bukauskas was expected to fill in as a middle reliever in Milwaukee's Opening Day bullpen, but he will instead head to Triple-A after turning in a 1.04 ERA through 8.2 spring innings. Should the Brewers run into bullpen depth issues during the season, the 27-year-old could be one of the first to earn a call back up to Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Healthy for spring

    Bukauskas (finger) has struck out six while allowing one hit and one walk over two scoreless innings through his first two appearances of the Cactus League.

    Bukauskas closed the 2023 season on the Brewers' 15-day injured list due to a right ring finger tendon injury, but he doesn't seem to be facing any restrictions thus far in camp. The 27-year-old right-hander is expected to fill a middle-relief role in the Milwaukee bullpen in 2024.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Out with finger injury

    Bukauskas was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to Sept. 25, with a right ring finger tendon injury.

    The severity of the injury is unclear, but Bukauskas is now poised to be sidelined through at least the NLDS, assuming the Brewers advance. Ethan Small was recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Recalled to bullpen

    Milwaukee recalled Bukauskas from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Bukauskas has allowed two runs -- one earned -- in just three innings of work this season at the MLB level, but he'll give the Brewers a fresh bullpen arm after they lost Elvis Peguero (elbow) to the 15-day IL in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Back in minors

    The Brewers optioned Bukauskas to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

    In order to make room for Colin Rea on the active roster, Bukauskas will end up being pushed back to the minors Saturday. The 26-year-old reliever holds a 4.38 ERA and 1.43 WHIP through 37 innings in Triple-A this season and hasn't appeared in a major-league game since July 4.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Joins big-league bullpen

    The Brewers recalled Bukauskas from Triple-A Nashville on Monday.

    Bukauskas will provide the Brewers with a fresh arm out of the bullpen heading into Monday's series opener with the Cubs after the team needed four relievers to cover the final seven innings of Sunday's 10-6 win over the Padres. The Brewers required extra work from their bullpen because starter Adrian Houser (elbow) exited the contest after recording just two outs. Houser was moved to the 15-day injured list Monday to clear a spot on the active roster for Bukauskas.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Optioned to Triple-A level

    Milwaukee optioned Bukauskas to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

    Bukauskas made two appearances during his brief stay in the Brewers' bullpen. The 26-year-old right-hander owns a career 7.08 ERA in 20.1 total major-league frames.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Joins active roster

    Bukauskas was recalled by the Brewers on Saturday.

    Bukauskas made one big-league appearance for the Mariners in early April before being designated for assignment. He was claimed by Milwaukee but promptly placed on the injured list with a cervical strain. He initially remained in the minors once his rehab stint ended but will now get his chance at the highest level, where he'll look to improve on his 7.85 ERA and 1.91 WHIP through 18.1 career innings.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Activated and optioned

    The Brewers reinstated Bukauskas (neck) from the 15-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.

    Bukauskas made two rehab appearances for Nashville last week to prove that he's no longer bothered by the strained neck, but the Brewers simply don't have room on the 26-man active roster at the moment for another low-leverage reliever. He'll continue to work out of the Nashville bullpen and could be an option to rejoin the big club the next time Milwaukee needs a fresh arm.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Rehabbing at Triple-A

    Bukauskas (neck) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Bukauskas has been on the injured list since May 20 with a cervical strain. It's unclear how long the team plans on keeping Bukauskas on assignment, but considering how beat up the Brewers' pitching staff already is, it could be a quick minor-league stint for the 26-year-old reliever.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Placed on 15-day IL

    Bukauskas was placed on the 15-day injured list by the Brewers on Saturday with a cervical strain.

    A cervical strain is also known as whiplash. The right-hander was replaced on the active roster by Colin Rea, with Rea being recalled from Triple-A Nashville in the corresponding transaction. The Brewers placed Bukauskas on the 15-day injured list retroactive to May 17, so the earliest he could return to the Milwaukee bullpen is the start of June.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Recalled from Nashville

    The Brewers recalled Bukauskas from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Bukauskas will fill the place of Gus Varland, who was DFA'd by the Crew on Tuesday. Bukauskas pitched just one major-league inning this season before being waived by Seattle and claimed by Milwaukee in April. Since then, he's been rather unimpressive in Nashville to the tune of a 6.35 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through 5.2 frames. Given his shaky history, the 26-year-old reliever likely won't see many high-leverage situations.

  • Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Claimed off waivers by MIL

    Bukauskas was claimed off waivers Tuesday by the Brewers.

    Bukauskas had been designated for assignment by Seattle after allowing two runs -- one earned -- in one inning this year at the MLB level. He'd also pitched to an ugly 7.94 ERA through 5.2 innings of relief at Triple-A Tacoma. He'll head to Triple-A Nashville to begin his stint with the Brewers organization.

  • Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Sent to Triple-A

    The Mariners optioned Bukauskas to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

    Bukauskas' stint in the majors lasted one day, and he was knocked around for two runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks over an inning of relief Sunday in Cleveland. Seattle called up Jose Rodriguez from Tacoma to replace Bukauskas in the bullpen.
