Milwaukee likely asked a lot for Lohse, because a) he’s pitching well, b) he’s signed for two more seasons, and c) it cost the 17th overall pick in June’s draft to sign him this offseason.
Through one season of a three-year, $33 million deal Lohse has provided a good return on the Brewers’ investment, throwing 139 innings with a 3.23 ERA for his third straight season with a sub-3.50 ERA, although the decision to forfeit a top-20 pick to acquire a 34-year-old looks even iffier now that they’re 49-66.
