He had a difficult time finding a team because of the league's new draft pick compensation system. The Brewers have to forfeit the 17th overall pick in the June draft to get Lohse.
Can't quite believe the Brewers are willing to do that. Maybe Lohse is taking much less money than he was asking for earlier in the year.
I was thinking that he might be sitting until June, when the MLB draft happens and he no longer costs a pick to sign.
