Cousins posted a 2.84 ERA and 17:6 K:BB in 11 appearances for Triple-A Nashville after being sent down Aug. 24.

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Shifts to 60-day IL
Cousins (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.
Cousins has been on the shelf nearly a month since being diagnosed with a UCL injury in his right elbow, and the shift to the 60-day IL won't affect his return timeline.

The 27-year-old is dealing with a UCL injury in his right elbow and will be sidelined for the foreseeable future, though he'll avoid surgery for the time being.

Cousins' elbow injury is a concerning one and may involve issues with his UCL, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Cousins has been on the injured list for six days with what was originally called a right elbow effusion. Any mention of the UCL implies that Tommy John surgery could be on the table. The Brewers expect to know more about the problem next week.... See More ... See Less

Brewers' Jake Cousins: Ends spring on high note
Cousins struck out two batters and picked up a save in Tuesday's spring game.
Cousins was knocked around a bit this spring, allowing five earned runs over 4.2 innings. However, he did post a 6:1 K:BB and ended the exhibition season on a high note. He won't be in position to pick up saves when the regular season gets underway, but he does figure to be part of the Brewers' late-inning mix, and the 13.2 K/9 he posted in his rookie season suggests he does have closer's stuff....

Miguel Sanchez was recalled to take his spot in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jake Cousins: Continues coming through
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.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jake Cousins: Back in action
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.
