Kyle Lohse pitched six innings and allowed two runs Wednesday in a solid outing against the Tigers.
Lohse has a perfectly reasonable 3.55 ERA in his last six starts after getting absolutely blitzed in his first three (10.34 ERA). He has a two-start week in San Francisco and Arizona next week, making him a nice streaming option in mixed leagues. May 20 - 10:38 PM

Kyle Lohse fired eight scoreless innings in a 7-0 win over the Mets on Friday.

A start against the light-hitting Mets was exactly what the doctor ordered for Lohse, who allowed just two hits and one walk. The veteran right-hander struck out eight in the victory, including three in his final frame. His ERA improved from 7.03 to 5.85. He'll look to build off this one when he faces the Tigers on the road next week.
May 15 - 9:49 PM

Kyle Lohse won his second game of the season on Saturday, despite allowing four runs in just five innings.

The Brewers exploded offensively, racking up 11 runs on 12 hits, and Lohse was the beneficiary. All he had to do to improve to 2-4 was not implode, and he more or less managed that feat. Kris Bryant knocked him for a three-run homer in the third inning and Starlin Castro slapped an RBI hit in the next frame to account for the four runs against Lohse. While he struck out seven and walked just one, his 7.03 ERA could use some serious work. Lohse also owns a 1.36 WHIP and 30/9 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings. He'll try to make it two wins in a row during his road start against the Mets next time he toes the rubber.
May 9 - 10:27 PM

Kyle Lohse could only pitch five innings, allowing three runs, in a no-decision as the Brewers came back to win against the Dodgers on Monday.

Lohse gave up a home run to the first batter he saw, Joc Pederson. He settled down for a bit, then gave up two more runs in the fourth inning on a Yasmani Grandal single and a Juan Uribe sacrifice fly. Overall, he gave up four hits and walked three while striking out four. Lohse will take an ugly 7.01 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and a 23/8 K/BB ratio in 34 2/3 innings into his next start at home against the Cubs.
May 4 - 10:32 PM

Kyle Lohse served up three home runs, resulting in four runs, over seven innings in a loss to the Reds on Tuesday.

Lohse served up a solo home run to Joey Votto in the first inning, and second-inning round-trippers to Brandon Phillips and Marlon Byrd, accounting for the four runs he allowed. Lohse gave up seven hits in total with one walk and five strikeouts. Perhaps a new month will provide a change in fortune, as he sits on a 7.28 ERA with a 1.37 WHIP and a 19/5 K/BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings. Lohse will have to take on the Dodgers at home in his next outing.
Apr 28 - 9:29 PM

Kyle Lohse picked up his first win of the season on Thursday, yielding two runs over seven innings, as the Brewers beat the Reds 4-2.

Lohse badly needed Thursday's outing, as he entered the game 0-3 with a 10.34 ERA in his first three starts. The Reds could only squeeze out three hits and a walk against the right-hander, who also struck out four. The one mistake he made came in the fifth inning when Marlon Byrd hit a two-run home run. Now with a 7.94 ERA, Lohse will look for more of the same when he meets the Reds in Cincinnati.
Apr 23 - 4:37 PM

Kyle Lohse surrendered six earned runs over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

In Lohse's first two starts of the year, he allowed eight runs and four runs. Things didn't look much better on Saturday. He allowed three runs in the first inning off of a pair of RBI singles, then gave up a three-run bomb to Starling Marte in the fifth. His ERA for the season now sits at 10.34. The veteran right-hander is best left off fantasy rosters until these numbers settle. He'll try to get that ERA into single digits when he faces the Reds in his next outing.
Apr 18 - 9:52 PM

Kyle Lohse surrendered four earned runs over 6 1/3 innings Sunday in the Brewers' loss to the Pirates.

This wasn't as ugly as his season debut -- in which Lohse was blasted for eight runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Rockies -- but it wasn't pretty either. Lohse gave up eight total hits on Sunday afternoon, including a third-inning RBI single to Gregory Polanco and a sixth-inning three-run homer to Andrew McCutchen. The veteran right-hander is looking like a poor fantasy bet out of the gate. He'll try to redeem himself next Saturday against these same Pirates.
Apr 12 - 5:16 PM

Kyle Lohse was blasted for eight runs over 3 1/3 innings in an Opening Day loss to the Rockies on Monday.

And it wasn't even at Coors Field. Lohse was touched up for 10 hits, including two homers. The eight runs allowed tied a career-high. The veteran right-hander isn't a top-shelf fantasy option, but he owns a 3.28 ERA over the past four seasons. It should only get better from here.
Apr 6 - 5:38 PM

Kyle Lohse was hit around in his final start of the spring on Wednesday, surrendering seven runs over four innings to the Cubs.

Lohse served up three home runs, allowing eight hits and four walks in total while striking out three. It's not exactly the end to the spring he was hoping for, but he'll have to put it behind him as he prepares to oppose Rockies right-hander Kyle Kendrick on Opening Day on Monday.
Apr 1 - 7:31 PM

Kyle Lohse limited the Rangers to four hits and one run over five innings in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Rangers.

It was a split squad, but Lohse may have mowed down a full lineup with how sharp he was Saturday. The right-hander struck out five without walking a batter, throwing 51 stikes in 75 pitches. He now has a 1.80 ERA with 15 strikeouts in 15 spring innings. It's only March 21, but Lohse appears ready for the regular season to begin.
Mar 21 - 7:40 PM

Kyle Lohse delivered another strong Cactus League effort on Sunday, allowing just one run on two hits over 4 1/3 innings against the Athletics.

The veteran right-hander struck out three in the ballgame while walking only one. Tabbed as the Brewers starter on Opening Day, the often under-valued hurler makes for a strong addition in the mid-rounds of fantasy drafts.
Mar 15 - 7:11 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced Friday that Kyle Lohse will start on Opening Day.

He'll be followed in the Brewers rotation by Matt Garza and Wily Peralta. The 36-year-old is certainly deserving of the honor after going 13-9 with a 3.54 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 141/45 K/BB ratio over 198 1/3 innings in 2014.
Mar 13 - 8:08 PM

Kyle Lohse struck out four while spinning three shutout frames in Tuesday's Cactus League victory over the Reds.

Lohse hit a batter, but he allowed just two singles and didn't walk a batter. The veteran right-hander was also sharp in his first Cactus League outing. Lohse is poised to start on Opening Day for the Brew Crew.
Mar 10 - 8:19 PM

Kyle Lohse allowed a run in 2 2/3 innings in Thursday's Cactus League start against the Angels.

Lohse allowed a lead-off double to C.J. Cron to lead off the third, then got two consecutive outs before being pulled. Ariel Pena inherited Lohse's runner and allowed him to score. Overall, Lohse allowed just the one hit while striking out three. The right-hander is now 36 years old but hasn't shown any signs of slowing down yet.
