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.
Sep 6 - 10:16 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.
Aug 31 - 9:31 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 2:37 AM

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.
Aug 22 - 5:21 PM

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.
Aug 19 - 11:11 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.
Aug 15 - 8:30 PM

Kyle Lohse (ankle) is unsure if he will be able to take his next turn in the Brewers' starting rotation.

Lohse left his start Wednesday night against the Cubs after tweaking his right ankle. "I’ve had two rounds (of treatment) already this morning, but we kind of have to wait and see," the righty told reporters on Thursday. "We have to figure out how to make sure I can do what I need to do without aggravating it. There’s not really anything I can say right now about what’s going to happen."

Kyle Lohse left Wednesday's start against the Cubs after tweaking his right ankle.

Lohse tweaked the ankle during his at-bat in the top of the third inning and promptly gave up back-to-back home runs to lead off the bottom of the inning. He finished the inning but was replaced by Marco Estrada in the fourth. The fact that he was able to finish the inning offers hope that he may be able to avoid the disabled list, but more should be known about the extent of the injury in the coming days.

Kyle Lohse left Wednesday's start against the Cubs with an apparent injury.

Lohse received a visit from the trainer in the bottom of the third inning but finished the inning. He was replaced by Marco Estrada to start the bottom of the fourth. Lohse allowed four runs on seven hits over his three innings before exiting. The Brewers should update his status soon.
Aug 13 - 9:15 PM

Kyle Lohse tossed six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Friday.

Lohse held the Dodgers to six hits and two walks to go along with two strikeouts. The only run scored on a solo homer by Adrian Gonzalez in his final inning of work. While he didn't win, it was an encouraging bounceback performance after he was hammered for nine runs (seven earned) last time out. He'll bring a 3.33 ERA into a start against the Cubs next week at home.
Aug 9 - 1:09 AM

Kyle Lohse coughed up nine runs -- seven earned -- on nine hits over four innings Saturday in a loss to the Cardinals.

It was bad. He walked three, struck out two, and surrendered a pair of round-trippers. If you're forgiving by nature, feel free to chalk up this nightmare outing to bad circumstances: Lohse was forced to move up a day because Jimmy Nelson was scratched due to a blister. The right-hander's ERA jumped from 3.07 to 3.40, while he dropped to 11-6.
Aug 2 - 11:11 PM

Kyle Lohse tossed 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Wednesday as the Brewers defeated the Reds.

Lohse was sharp, yielding only four hits and two walks while pitching into the seventh inning. The veteran right-hander ran into a bit of a rough patch in early July, but he's back on track now with two straight one-run outings. Lohse will carry an 11-4 record, 3.07 ERA, and 1.09 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Rays.
Jul 23 - 5:00 PM

Kyle Lohse fired seven innings of one-run ball Friday in a 4-2 win over the Nationals.

It was his first win since June 22. Lohse gave up 10 hits, so the Nationals had their fair share of chances, but the only run scored on an RBI double from Ian Desmond in the fourth inning. He fanned three and walked none in the victory. The veteran right-hander has a solid 3.16 ERA across 20 starts this season and continues to be a quietly valuable option in mixed leagues.
Jul 18 - 11:11 PM

Kyle Lohse fell to 9-4, allowing four runs over eight innings in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

Lohse had only allowed one home run total over his previous five starts, but the Phillies were able to rip two against him on Wednesday. Chase Utley went yard in the first and Rollins hit a two-run shot in the sixth. Overall, Lohse allowed seven hits, walked none, and struck out eight. He carries a 3.26 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP, and a 95/23 K/BB ratio. Lohse will face the Nationals on the road in his next start following the All-Star break.
