  • Astros' Bennett Sousa: Transferred to 60-day IL

    The Astros transferred Sousa (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Houston needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Jacob Amaya. Sousa underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery earlier this week and will miss the rest of the season.

  • Astros' Bennett Sousa: Out for season

    Sousa underwent surgery Wednesday for thoracic outlet syndrome and will miss the rest of the season, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Sousa landed on the 15-day IL before the start of the season due to shoulder inflammation, though an extended absence was expected after he said the issue was nerve-related -- similar to the injury he sustained last season. The 28-year-old left-hander owns a 7.06 ERA across 29.1 career MLB innings, and he will now look to 2025 for a return to a big-league mound.

  • Astros' Bennett Sousa: Won't be back soon

    Astros GM Dana Brown said Sunday it'll likely be "a few more weeks" before the full scope of Sousa's shoulder injury is determined, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    The left-hander landed on the injured list Thursday with shoulder inflammation, though the full specifics of the injury aren't yet known. Sousa doesn't have an official timeline for his return but will be sidelined well beyond the 15-day minimum.

  • Astros' Bennett Sousa: Placed on injured list

    The Astros placed Sousa on the 15-day injured list Thursday with left shoulder inflammation, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    It's not clear when Sousa suffered the injury, but he'll be sidelined for at least the first couple weeks of the season. According to McTaggart, Sousa said his injury is considered nerve-related, and the issue is similar to one that he contended with last year. The left-handed reliever should be in the mix for a spot in the bullpen once he's healthy.

  • Tigers' Bennett Sousa: Pushed off 40-man roster

    Sousa was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Friday.

    The 28-year-old was just claimed off waivers from the Brewers on Tuesday, but the Tigers needed to clear out a 40-man roster spot for September call-up Miguel Diaz. Sousa owns a 9.00 ERA and 14:12 K:BB in 23 career innings at the major-league level.

    Sousa will join his fourth different organization of the season. The 28-year-old has put up big strikeout totals during his time in the minors but has struggled during his big-league opportunities, posting a 9.00 ERA and 14:12 K:BB over 23 relief innings the last two seasons. Sousa will report to Triple-A Toledo.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Activated, returned to minors

    Sousa (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Monday.

    Sousa had been on the IL since June 9 with left shoulder nerve irritation, but he's healthy again after he recently completed a four-appearance rehab assignment between Nashville and the rookie-level Arizona Complex League. The southpaw reliever has only made two appearances in the majors this season and coughed up two earned runs in both of those outings. He'll likely need to enjoy an extended run of success in Nashville before he gets another look with the Brewers.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Sousa (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Justin Wilson's return. Sousa is beginning a rehab assignment with the Brewers' Arizona Coast League affiliate Friday, so he could be ready for activation when first eligible in early August. He's been out since early June with left shoulder nerve irritation.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Lands on IL

    The Brewers placed Sousa on the 15-day injured list Friday with left shoulder nerve irritation.

    Sousa made just his second appearance of the season Wednesday against Baltimore in the ninth inning and surrendered two runs on three hits and a walk. He will now be shelved for at least another two weeks, becoming the 10th Brewers pitcher currently on the IL. Tyson Miller was recalled from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Brought up from minors

    The Brewers recalled Sousa from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

    Milwaukee sent right-hander Jake Cousins to Nashville to open up a spot on the 26-man active roster and in the bullpen for Sousa, who rejoins the big club for the first time since early May. Since being demoted to Nashville, Sousa has pitched to a 3.12 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 8.2 innings across eight appearances.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Heads back to minors

    The Brewers optioned Sousa to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

    Sousa's demotion came one day after he was tagged for two earned runs on two hits and one walk over 1.2 innings out of the bullpen in his Brewers debut in Monday's 9-3 win over the Dodgers. Though he'll now head back to Triple-A, Sousa should be near the top of the list for a promotion the next time the Brewers are in need of another lefty arm in the bullpen.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Recalled from Triple-A

    Sousa was recalled Friday from Triple-A Nashville.

    Sousa will join the Brewers' bullpen Friday night in San Francisco. He was acquired from the Reds last month in exchange for cash considerations and had racked up eight strikeouts across 4.2 innings of work with Nashville.

  • Brewers' Bennett Sousa: Acquired from Reds

    The Brewers acquired Sousa from the Reds in exchange for cash considerations Sunday and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Sousa was designated for assignment by the Reds last week and will remain in the NL Central with the trade. He'll provide depth as an up-and-down option for the Brewers while on the 40-man roster.

  • Reds' Bennett Sousa: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Sousa was designated for assignment by the Reds on Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Sousa was the 40-man roster casualty when the Reds selected the contract of fellow relief pitcher Kevin Herget. The left-hander appeared in 25 games with White Sox in 2022, struggling to a 8.41 ERA and 1.72 WHIP with 12 strikeouts over 20.1 innings.

  • Reds' Bennett Sousa: Sent to Triple-A

    Sousa was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

    Sousa joined the Reds at the end of February after being designated for assignment by the White Sox, and he's now set to begin the 2023 campaign in the minors. He was unable to find much success with Chicago a season ago, finishing with an 8.41 ERA and 1.72 WHIP with a 12:10 K:BB across 20.1 frames, but he should be in the mix for a mid-season promotion.

  • Reds' Bennett Sousa: Lands with Reds

    The Reds claimed Sousa off waivers from the White Sox on Wednesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Sousa, designated for assignment Monday, posted a miserable 8.41 ERA in 20.1 innings with the White Sox last season. Those struggles suggest he'll need to show significant improvement in camp for a shot at Cincinnati's Opening Day roster.

  • White Sox's Bennett Sousa: Removed from 40-man roster

    The White Sox designated Sousa for assignment Monday.

    Sousa was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for infielder Elvis Andrus, who finalized a one-year, $3 million deal with Chicago on Monday. In his 25 appearances out of the Chicago bullpen in 2022, the left-handed Sousa struggled to an 8.41 ERA, 1.72 WHIP and 12:10 K:BB across 20.1 innings. The 27-year-old will hit the waiver wire, and there could be some interest from clubs looking for a southpaw to compete for a bullpen spot.

  • White Sox's Bennett Sousa: Sent to Triple-A

    The White Sox optioned Sousa to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.

    With holds in both of his last two appearances, Sousa appeared to be gaining traction in the late innings for Chicago, but he'll end up being swapped out of the bullpen for Joe Kelly (hamstring), who returns from a stint on the 15-day injured list. Through his 25 appearances with the White Sox this season, Sousa has largely been unreliable, as he's turned in an 8.41 ERA and 1.72 WHIP across 20.1 innings.
