Description: Newly-acquired starting pitcher Kyle Lohse will make his season debut Friday against Arizona.
Insight: Lohse only made one Cactus League appearance for the Brew Crew but apparently that was all Milwaukee needed to see. Lohse might be on a shorter leash than usual in his first regular season start but that shouldn't discourage fantasy owners from using him Friday versus the D'Backs.

Description: Brewers righthander Kyle Lohse pitched well in his spring training debut Thursday against Colorado.

Description: Brewers righty Kyle Lohse will make his spring training debut Thursday, just three days after agreeing to a three-year, $33 million contract.
Insight: The 34-year-old Lohse had the finest season of his career with St. Louis last season, going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP, all career bests. Staying in the NL Central should allow him to be comfortable and another solid season is possible. He could make his regular season debut in the second or third week of April.

Description: Right-hander Kyle Lohse has signed a three-year, $33 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, according to a report from Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
Insight: The 34-year-old Lohse had the finest season of his career with St. Louis last season, going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP, all career bests. Staying in the NL Central should allow him to be comfortable and another solid season is possible.

Description: Free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse is "almost certain to sign with a team soon," sources told Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com
Insight: The 34-year-old Lohse had the finest season of his career with St. Louis last season, going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP, all career bests. He has drawn interest from several teams but no one has pulled the trigger because signing Lohse requires giving up a high draft pick.

Description: Brewers owner Mark Attanasio hasn't ruled out the possibility of adding free agent righthander Kyle Lohse. SOURCE: MLBlogs
Insight: Any team that signs Lohse will have to surrender a draft pick. Lohse's age has also been a deterrent (he turned 34 in October) but it's still pretty surprising that he hasn't generated much interest following his incredible 2012 campaign (16-3, 2.86 ERA in 33 starts).

Description: Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles has confirmed that the Dodgers are interested in signing former Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse.

Description: Nick Cafardo from the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox have "called about" free agent righthander Kyle Lohse.
Insight: Ben Cherington and the rest of the Red Sox front office insists the team is trying to get younger, yet they have already signed 37-year-old David Ortiz, are on the verge of signing Jonny Gomes (who turns 32 on Thursday) and now they appear to be interested in the 34-year-old Lohse. To Lohse's credit, he did have an outstanding season in 2012 (16-3, 2.86 ERA) and would probably be a cheaper alternative to some of the other big name pitchers on the market this winter including Anibal Sanchez and Zack Greinke. Lohse is said to be looking for at least a three-year deal.
11/3/2012 5:49:00 PM
Description: St. Louis extended a qualifying offer to free agent righthander Kyle Lohse.
Insight: By doing this, the Cardinals protected themselves so that they will at least receive a draft pick if Lohse ends up leaving to sign with another team. Lohse is coming off a career year and is expected to net a multi-year deal.
