Kyle Lohse has been moved to the Brewers' bullpen.

Tyler Cravy will take over the vacant rotation spot. Lohse, 36, is 5-13 with a 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 124 innings (22 starts) this season for the last-place Brewers. He'll finish up the final year of a three-year, $33 million free agent deal in a mop-up role.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Kyle Lohse will remain in the club's rotation "as of now."

Counsell said Sunday that the organization would discuss Lohse's status and apparently they've decided to leave him in the starting five for the time being. "Kyle’s still in the rotation," Counsell said. "Kyle’s pitching Friday night as of now." Lohse holds an ugly 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season and is on thin ice, to say the least.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that the organization will have a discussion about the rotation spot of Kyle Lohse.

Lohse was handed his 13th loss of the season on Sunday, allowing four runs on nine hits over just 4 1/3 innings against the Cubs. He owns a troublesome 6.31 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 86/30 K/BB ratio on the season and has shown no signs of figuring things out or stringing a few good starts together. It's quite shocking that he has remained in the rotation for as long as he has.

Kyle Lohse picked up his 13th loss of the season in Sunday's contest with the Cubs, allowing four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Sunday's start counts as a decent outing relative to some of Lohse's other disasters this season. He allowed solitary runs in the first, second, fourth and fifth innings while striking out three against one walk. For the season, he holds a 6.31 ERA and 1.47 WHIP to pair with an 86/30 K/BB ratio over 124 innings. The Cardinals are up next on his schedule, which probably isn't a good thing.
Aug 2 - 5:40 PM

Kyle Lohse yielded four runs over 6 2/3 innings, taking his 12th loss of the season on Monday versus the Giants.

The Giants put up a three-spot in the fourth inning, which included a two-run Brandon Crawford home run. Gregor Blanco ripped a pinch-hit RBI double in the seventh. Lohse, overall, gave up five hits and three walks, and failed to register a strikeout. The right-hander owns an abysmal 6.24 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP and an 83/29 K/BB ratio over 119 2/3 innings. He faces the Cubs in a home start next.
Jul 28 - 12:58 AM

Kyle Lohse fooled nobody in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Indians, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Of the 10 hits Lohse allowed, two left the ballpark in the form of a solo home run by Francisco Lindor in the first inning and a three-run shot by Michael Brantley in the third. The veteran right-hander struck out three and walked three in the ugly outing. His numbers for the season? Also less than shiny, as he now holds a 6.29 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 83/26 K/BB ratio over 113 innings. Assuming he hasn't pitched his way out of the Brewer rotation, he'll take to the road to face the Giants in his next start.
Jul 22 - 5:39 PM

Kyle Lohse racked up six strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Lohse allowed just two runs on four hits over his five frames, and departed in line for his sixth victory of the season, but the Brewers bullpen was unable to hold on to his lead. He has had an abysmal first half this season, posting a troubling 6.17 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 80/23 K/BB ratio across 108 innings.
Jul 12 - 7:35 PM

Kyle Lohse continued to struggle, giving up four runs on 11 hits in five innings, taking the loss on Monday against the Braves.

The 11 hits match a season-high for the right-hander, who also walked one while striking out four. Two runs came in the first inning on Kelly Johnson's home run, and two more came in the second inning on a Nick Markakis RBI double and a Johnson single. Lohse has had a miserable year, carrying a 6.29 ERA with a 1.43 WHIP and a 74/23 K/BB ratio over 103 innings. He'll try to salvage his final start of the first half in L.A. against the Dodgers.
Jul 6 - 11:47 PM

Kyle Lohse pitched well enough to win, allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings, as the Brewers beat the Phillies by a 9-5 margin on Wednesday.

Lohse was more impressive at the plate, as he singled three times and scored two runs in four at-bats. On the mound, he allowed nine hits and a pair of walks while striking out four. Against a more competent offense, the results wouldn't have been as good. Nevertheless, Lohse now has a 6.24 ERA with a 1.38 WHIP and a 70/22 K/BB ratio over 98 innings. He'll face the Braves at home in his next start.
Jul 1 - 10:18 PM

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.
