USA Today Sports is reporting that the Milwaukee Brewers have signed starting pitcher Kyle Lohse, Nomlaki Nation.
Lohse, the last star on the free-agent market, agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract with the Brewers that will make him the team's highest-paid pitcher, two officials with direct knowledge of the negotiations told USA Today Sports. Less than a week remains before the start of the regular season
As the paper notes, Lohse, 34, is coming off the greatest season of his career, dominating the National League Central for the second consecutive year. He went 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and had the Cardinals within one game of the World Series. He finished seventh in the National League Cy Young balloting.
