It’s old news that right-hander Kyle Lohse was claimed on waivers and then pulled back without a trade, but it wasn’t known who tried to pluck him away from the Brewers. FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal revealed today that it was the Braves who made the claim.

Lohse would have been pretty much the perfect replacement for Tim Hudson in Atlanta’s rotation, though the team didn’t have a big need there with a Mike Minor, Julio Teheran, Kris Medlen, Paul Maholm (though injured at the time), Brandon Beachy and Alex Wood as rotation options. Now they do have greater concerns, what with Beachy set to visit Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

Rosenthal said the Brewers didn’t give much thought to trading Lohse when he was claimed, not when only one team could bid. He’s under control at $11 million per year through 2015, so he’ll bring back a couple of prospects this winter if the team decides to trade him then.
