There’s been plenty of MLB rumors this offseason surrounding the Milwaukee Brewers and which players they may try to go after before the start of the 2013 regular season. After an impressive 2012 campaign with the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the biggest questions involves whether or not the team should make a run at starting pitcher Kyle Lohse.
The argument can be made that Lohse is coming off the best season of his career in 2012 after posting a 16-3 record to go along with a 2.86 ERA as he played a key role in helping the Cardinals reach the NLCS against the San Francisco Giants. In fact, Lohse has an impressive 30-11 record over his last two seasons with St. Louis–so he’s going to certainly gain interest from numerous teams over the next couple of weeks.
Of course, the main concern for most teams with Lohse is age considering the pitcher is 35-years-old heading into the 2013 season and it’s difficult to determine how much juice he still has left in the arm. Still, if last season is any indication of what to expect, there’s no reason for any team to be concerned about Lohse and his arm.
If he put up these type of numbers over the last two seasons, just imagine what Lohse could have in store for 2013. If the Brewers want an extra weapon for their rotation, it would be a wise move to strongly consider signing Lohse before it’s too late.
