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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
