It remains unclear where free agent Kyle Lohse is going to end up this offseason, but sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that the right-hander “is almost certain to sign with a team soon.” Rosenthal offers this news, but doesn’t include information on Lohse’s potential contract or where he might sign. He’s been tied to multiple teams this offseason, including the Cleveland Indians, St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals, Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres and Baltimore Orioles, and it’s no clearer now then it was at the start of the winter where he’ll ultimately land. None of the teams connected to Lohse appear to be seriously interested in the veteran. All have expressed concerns over his asking price and/or the required draft pick compensation he carries with him. Others just flat out don’t have a need, or at least not enough of a need to shell out the money Lohse is seeking. Lohse seemingly did everything that was required of him last season as he prepared for free agency. He started 33 games and accumulated more than 200 innings pitched. Over the 211 frames he logged, the right-hander maintained an ERA of 2.86 with a 3.76 strikeout-to-walk ratio. All this did was garner him NL Cy Young Award consideration. Still, it appears that his asking price, the draft pick compensation or most likely some combination of the two has caused him to remain on the open market. It’s unclear where he’ll land, but apparently Lohse will sign soon. Your guess is as good as mine.

Won’t someone give Lohse a chance?

Kyle Lohse has been one of the best pitchers in the National League the last two years. Last season with the Cardinals he had his finest year, going 16-3 (his .842 winning percentage led the National League) with an ERA of 2.86 (5th in the league), a WHIP of 1.090 (4th) and finishing 7th in [...]

A Kyle Lohse Back-and-Forth

Below, a back-and-forth. Jeff Sullivan Michael Bourn finally got signed, right before the start of spring training. Bourn’s signing leaves only Kyle Lohse among available free agents of consequence. Lohse, of course, is going to sign somewhere eventually, if only because spring training means starting pitchers will get hurt, but it’s hard to identify a destination, as no one’s...

Potential New Homes For Kyle Lohse

Much has been written about free-agent starter Kyle Lohse remaining unsigned as pitchers and catchers report. Even Lohse’s former team, the St. Louis Cardinals, has shown no interest in bringing him back. What gives? The prevailing theory seems to be that teams do not want to surrender their first-round draft pick for a 34-year-old righty. An alternate theory is that Lohse’s...

One final plea for the Angels to sign Kyle Lohse

Everyone says you can never have too much starting pitching. Well, almost everyone. My six-week old son doesn't say that because he can't talk and also has a tiny, stupid brain. Babies are very stupid, so I'll amend that first sentence to everyone who knows about baseball and has a fully developed brain says you can never have too much starting pitching. To that point...

MLB Complete 2013 Team Previews
