The Tigers are “eyeing” Kyle Lohse


Jon Heyman reports that the Tigers are “eyeing” free agent Kyle Lohse. Lohse held a showcase in Arizona yesterday and one presumes notes the Tigers were one of the teams which sent a scout.

Lohse is 37 and struggled last year, posting a 5.85 ERA with a 108/43 K/BB ratio in 152 1/3 innings. If a club needs a body for the back of the rotation they could do worse at this point than taking a chance on the guy. He’s been a late spring signing before and was useful despite the lack of spring training. But he’s also short on the upside at this point in his career.
