Kyle Lohse allowed four runs over six innings in a 10-4 win over the Twins on Friday.
It was his first win since May 15. It wasn't pretty, as Lohse gave up six hits (including a pair of home runs), but he'll take it. The veteran right-hander has now allowed 19 home runs on the year, including at least one in each of his last seven starts. He gave up 22 home runs all of last season. The home run ball is a big reason for his bloated 6.00 ERA and he's showing no signs of breaking out of that even though he got the win Friday. Jun 26 - 11:27 PM

Kyle Lohse was tagged for five runs over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Monday.

Lohse's nightmare season continues. The veteran right-hander allowed five hits (including a two-run homer to Lorenzo Cain) and two walks while striking out two batters. He threw just 57 out of 100 pitches for strikes. Lohse has allowed at least five runs in four out of his last five starts and owns an ugly 6.44 ERA on the year. Needless to say, he's not a fantasy option right now.
Jun 16 - 12:29 AM

Kyle Lohse limited the Pirates to two runs in 6 1/3 innings but took the loss on Wednesday.

Lohse allowed a run on a Starling Marte infield single in the first inning, and another on a Pedro Alvarez solo home run in the second. He gave up 10 hits overall while walking one and striking out two. The right-hander had been hit around in his previous three starts, continuing what has been a tough year. Lohse will carry a 6.27 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 57/16 K/BB ratio over 74 2/3 innings into a start next week at home against the Royals.
Jun 10 - 9:40 PM

Kyle Lohse was knocked around for five runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Twins.

Lohse has now allowed five earned runs or more in three straight starts and five times in 12 starts overall this season. He did that just four times in 31 starts all of last year. Things are bound to get better for him eventually, but he just can't be trusted in fantasy leagues right now.
Jun 6 - 12:09 AM

Kyle Lohse was hit hard in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks, serving up 11 hits and seven runs over 3 1/3 innings.

The fourth inning would be Lohse's undoing, as Paul Goldschmidt cranked a three-run homer off the veteran to send him to the showers. Lohse has had a few poor starts this season and Saturday's ranks up there with the worst of them. He now holds an ugly 6.50 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 51/15 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings. While he's been striking out batters at a decent clip, there's little else to recommend in those numbers. The former Twin will head to Minneapolis to take on his old club in his next start.
May 30 - 7:09 PM

Kyle Lohse was tagged for five runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Giants on Monday.

Lohse held the Giants to just one run over the first five innings, but he was pulled with one out in the sixth after allowing four straight batters to reach. All four of them came around to score in what turned out to be a seven-run inning for San Francisco. The veteran right-hander was showing signs of progress coming into Monday's start, but he owns a 5.80 ERA through 10 starts on the year. He'll get the Diamondbacks next week.
May 25 - 5:50 PM

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.
