Lohse claimed off waivers; pulled back

Mike McGinnis

The Brewers placed RHP Kyle Lohse on waivers yesterday

CBS's Danny Knobler had this to report on Thursday afternoon:

Lohse has pitched very well this season, amassing a 3.23 ERA over 139.1 innings.  His 4.16 FIP tells a slightly different story, but one would think he's pitched well enough to be of interest to contenders.  Of course, if they weren't willing to pony up in July, they probably aren't now.

As MLB Trade Rumors mentions, Lohse is owed very little this year (much of his salary is deferred), with another $22 million due over the next two seasons.  Lohse will be 36 by the time the deal is up.

UPDATE: Various Twitter sources have reported that Lohse was claimed off waivers and pulled back by the Brewers.  If he is placed on waivers again, he cannot be pulled back, so that should be the end of trade rumors surrounding Lohse until the offseason.
