Anything new on Lohse?
By Jason A. Churchill
Right-hander Kyle Lohse, who signed in March last season, appears to be headed for the same scenario this time around. ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney has checked in with clubs and tweets that the Cleveland Indians don't have the available payroll to sign the right-hander.
Olney also tweets that the Yankees told Lohse's agent that they have no interest, despite the recent injury to Phil Hughes.
Looks like we'll all have to wait, along with Lohse, to see where the veteran lands. If we were wagering, the St. Louis Cardinals, who haven't flatly ruled out bringing back Lohse but don't seem keen on the idea, might be the favorite, but that's mostly due to a lack of obvious options and fits.
