Tigers Designate Bennett Sousa For Assignment

MLB Trade Rumors

The Tigers announced they’ve designated reliever Bennett Sousa for assignment. That’s the 40-man move for Miguel Díaz, whose contract was selected last night.

Detroit just nabbed Sousa off waivers from Milwaukee on Tuesday. It’s possible his stay in the organization won’t result in an appearance, as the Tigers will now have to put him back on waivers. Having already gone from the White Sox to the Reds to the Brewers to Detroit via minor transactions this year, he could well be claimed again.

Sousa has pitched twice this season for Milwaukee and made 25 appearances for the ChiSox a season ago. The southpaw has allowed 24 runs in 23 big league innings, striking out 14 while walking 12. He owns a 2.98 ERA in parts of five minor league campaigns, though, striking out nearly 31% of opposing hitters in the process. Sousa still has a couple options remaining, meaning another team that claims him could keep him in Triple-A if they’re willing to carry him on the 40-man roster.
