Milwaukee Brewers select contract of RHP Jake Cousins, designate Zack Godley for assignment

Prior to the start of tonight’s series against the Diamondbacks, the Brewers made a move to get another pitcher in the bullpen. They selected the contract of RHP Jake Cousins, who will be making his MLB debut. To clear a roster spot for him (both on the active and 40-man), RHP Zack Godley was designated for assignment.

Jake Cousins has been in the Brewers organization since 2019. This season, he has pitched in sixteen games between Biloxi and Nashville. In 17.2 IP, he has posted a 2.55 ERA (2.08 ERA in Nashville, 3.00 in Biloxi), as well as 30 strikeouts compared to 5 walks.
