The Dodgers are interested in Kyle Lohse

Nov 28, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports that the Dodgers are interested in Kyle Lohse. Add this to their reported interest in Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez. You have to figure, though, that all of the free agent pitchers are going to wait until after Greinke signs and sets the market.

If you’re the Dodgers, though, why not? I mentioned this to Gleeman a minute a go and his response was that with their payroll, the Dodgers should investigate a home rotation and a road rotation.

Anyway, Lohse is coming off his best season as a major leaguer — he went 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA — but he’s 34 and his strikeout rates suggest a pitcher who was above his head last year.  I’d say buyer beware, but it’s the Dodgers and they’re richer than God so what do they care?
