MLB News: Kyle Lohse to Milwaukee Brewers

CBS’ Sports Jon Heyman is reporting today that free agent pitcher Kyle Lohse will be signing with the Milwaukee Brewers-

Lohse was the prize of the free agents left, but signing the veteran starter would have cost a team their first round pick. The Brewers will forfeit the #17 selection in the upcoming MLB draft by signing Lohse.

The Indians were believed to be in on Lohse early in free agency, but changed directions presumably after signing Swisher and Bourne. They opted to give Scott Kazmir and Dice-K looks instead. Kazmir appears to have won a spot in the rotation this spring.
