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.
Mar 5 - 7:06 PM

Kyle Lohse will start Thursday's Cactus League opener against the Angels.

Mike Fiers will start Wednesday when the Brewers take on the University of UW-Milwaukee Panthers, and Matt Garza will start Friday against the Dodgers. Lohse, 36, is coming off of another strong season. He finished 2014 with a 3.54 ERA and a 141/45 K/BB ratio in 198 1/3 innings. Lohse should provide decent late-round value in fantasy leagues again.
Mar 3 - 11:20 AM

Kyle Lohse tossed a two-hit shutout against the Reds on Wednesday.

Lohse ends his 2014 season with a flourish, notching his second shutout of the season -- the first time in the 35-year-old's 14-year career in which he has had multiple shutouts in a single season. Along with allowing only two hits, Lohse walked none and struck out six. Lohse ends his 2014 season with yet more solid numbers: a 13-9 record, a 3.54 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP, and a 141/45 K/BB ratio. That's four consecutive seasons of above-average pitching for the veteran, who should be expected to do the same going forward until he proves otherwise.

Kyle Lohse was given a no-decision despite limiting the Cardinals to one run over 7 1/3 innings, as the Brewers were cut down 3-2 in 13 innings.

Lohse blanked the Cardinals over seven innings, but allowed a lead-off single to Oscar Taveras to start the eighth. After getting Kolten Wong to hit into a fielder's choice, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke opted to pull Lohse at 88 pitches in favor of Jonathan Broxton. It turned out to be the wrong decision, as Broxton allowed Lohse's runner to score as well as one of his own to tie the game up at 2-2. Overall, Lohse allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out two. The right-hander has a 3.71 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a 135/45 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Reds in Cincinnati on Wednesday in his next outing.

Kyle Lohse took a no-decision Friday after allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Brewers.

Lohse allowed five hits (including a solo homer) and two walks while striking out six. While he didn't get the win, it was nice to see after he really struggled over his previous two starts. The veteran right-hander will bring a 3.81 ERA into a road start against the Cardinals next week.

Kyle Lohse was lit up for five earned runs in four innings Saturday as the Brewers lost to the Cardinals.

Lohse gave up only four hits, but one was a two-run Matt Adams homer in the top of the first inning and another was a Oscar Taveras two-run shot in the fourth. Kolten Wong also had an RBI double. Lohse has struggled now in two straight outings and will carry a rising 3.85 ERA into his next start at home versus the Marlins.
Sat, Sep 6, 2014 10:16:00 PM

Kyle Lohse was knocked around on Sunday, giving up seven runs over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Giants.

Lohse gave up nine hits on the day, including five extra-base hits. The loss was his fourth in his last five decisions, dropping him to 12-8 on the year. The right-hander still owns a strong 3.68 ERA despite the bumps in the road, and he'll look to improve on those numbers Friday against the Cardinals.

In his return to the rotation, Kyle Lohse fired six innings of one-run ball Monday in a 10-1 win over the Padres.

Outside of an Alexi Amarista triple, the Padres couldn't figure Lohse out. The right-hander, however, was a little wild, walking four. Lohse hadn't started since August 13 due to a sprained right ankle. He went 0-3 with a 6.63 ERA in his four starts prior to that one-outing layoff. Lohse will be in San Francisco on Sunday.

Kyle Lohse (ankle) will rejoin the Brewers' rotation on Monday in San Diego.

Lohse hasn't started since August 13 due to a sprained right ankle. He probably could have returned by now, as his throwing program wasn't interrupted, but the Brewers could afford to take it slowly with him with Jimmy Nelson and Mike Fiers pitching so well.

Kyle Lohse (ankle) is on track to rejoin the Brewers' rotation during the August 25-27 series versus the Padres.

The club can get by with four starters until Monday, putting Lohse's return date likely on Tuesday. "We want to make sure that he's right," manager Ron Roenicke said. "We know that to get this done, we have to have him at full strength." Lohse missed a start with a sprained ankle but has continued his throwing program.
Tue, Aug 19, 2014 11:11:00 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that the team will skip Kyle Lohse's next start to let him rest his sprained ankle.

The Brewers only play five games next week, so they can easily skip Lohse without requiring an additional starter. He should be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list, but fantasy owners in weekly leagues will need an alternative option for next week.
