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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' J.B. Bukauskas: Optioned to Triple-A level
Milwaukee optioned Bukauskas to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Sent to Triple-A
The Mariners optioned Bukauskas to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Recalled from Tacoma
The Mariners recalled Bukauskas from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Bukauskas is one of two new arms for Seattle's bullpen, with Justin Topa joining the right-hander in being called up from Tacoma to replace Matt Festa and Andres Munoz (shoulder). It's likely he'll operate in low-leverage situations for the most part while he's with the Mariners.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Sent to minors camp
The Mariners reassigned Bukauskas to minor-league camp Monday.
The right-hander held an 8.31 ERA over five Cactus League appearances. Bukauskas was a waiver pickup in January before Seattle removed him from its 40-man roster in February.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Outrighted to Triple-A
Bukauskas cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
After being claimed by the Mariners in mid-January and DFA'd Tuesday, Bukauskas is now set to begin 2023 in the Mariners' farm system and attend major-league spring training as a non-roster invitee. The 26-year-old right-hander recorded a 2.79 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 19.1 Triple-A innings last season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Designated for assignment
Bukauskas was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday.
The move clears a spot on the roster after the Mariners claimed Tayler Saucedo off waivers from the Mets. Bukauskas had a short stay on the Mariners' 40-man roster, as he was claimed by Seattle off waivers from Arizona on Jan. 17. The right-hander posted a 2.79 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP over 19.1 frames with Triple-A Reno in 2022. If unclaimed, he likely will report to Triple-A Tacoma to provide organizational depth for the 2023 season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' J.B. Bukauskas: Claimed by Seattle
The Mariners claimed Bukauskas off waivers from Arizona on Tuesday.
After being designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Bukauskas will now get another chance to contribute to a major-league pitching staff with Seattle. Bukauskas spent the first few months of last season on the injured list, but was able to return and post a 2.79 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 19.1 frames with Triple-A Reno. To make room for the 26-year-old reliever, the Mariners designated Alberto Rodriguez for assignment.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' J.B. Bukauskas: Designated for assignment
Bukauskas was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Bukauskas sustained a shoulder injury in March of 2022 that forced him to miss the start of last season, and he didn't make any major-league appearances for Arizona. He posted a 2.79 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 19.1 innings over 20 relief appearances at Triple-A Reno in 2022, and he'll lose his spot on the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster after the team re-signed Zach Davies on Wednesday....

Diamondbacks' J.B. Bukauskas: Activated, sent to minors
The Diamondbacks reinstated Bukauskas (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday and reassigned him to the minors.
Arizona hasn't officially announced what affiliate Bukauskas will join, but he'll presumably be sticking around at Triple-A Reno, with whom he made his last rehab appearance Sunday. Though Bukauskas was added back to the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster while lefty Dallas Keuchel was designated for assignment in a corresponding move, the big club doesn't look as though it'll have a spot available in the bullpen for the right-hander for the time being. During his eight-appearance rehab assignment between the rookie-level Arizona Complex League and the Triple-A club, Bukaskas struck out nine over eight scoreless frames.... See More ... See Less
