Shouse pitched in seven games for the Red Sox back in 1998, before being released on June 25. He went 0-1 with an ERA 5.62. He pitched in exactly 8 innings, getting a WHIP of 1.63.
Shouse was 29 years old when he pitched for the Red Sox. He made his major league debut back in 1993 at the age of 24 for the Pittsburgh Pirates. That was his last season before joining the Sox. From 1994 to 1997, Shouse didn't appear in the majors.
Then, Shouse took 1999-2001 off, before reentering the majors, with the Kansas City Royals, then joining the Texas Rangers from 2003-2006. He was traded by the Rangers midseason to the Milwaukee Brewers from 2006-2008, before pitching last season for the Rays.
Shouse's best seasons are 2004 and 2005 with Texas. In those two seasons combined, Shouse went 2-1 with an ERA of 2.73 and a WHIP of 1.23 in 115 games.
Certainly and odd career for Shouse.
Shouse's 2009 stats: 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA and a WHIP of 1.36 in 45 games.
