All remains quiet on the Kyle Lohse front.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports published an article this evening suggesting eight different major league teams — Brewers, Indians, Rangers, Red Sox, Angels, Orioles, Yankees and Cardinals — that could be in play for the free agent right-hander.
But Heyman notes in that same article that there’s no indication that any sort of agreement is close.
The Brewers have engaged in discussions with Lohse’s agent, Scott Boras, and club owner Mark Attanasio has even been invovled. But it sounds like most members of the Milwaukee front office would prefer to hang on to this year’s 17th overall pick.
Lohse, 34, posted a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 211 innings last season for St. Louis. He declined a one-year, $13.3 million qualifying offer from the Cards in November, which triggered the draft pick compensation.
Heyman, who usually gets good info on Boras clients, says a “three-year offer should get it done at this point.” Lohse was probably hoping for a four- or five-year contract when the offseason began.
