Kyle Lohse is off to arguably his strongest start yet in his age-35 season, with a 2.70 ERA in six starts.

So now that we've explained Lohse's impressive April strikeout totals, what do we do with him in fantasy leagues? While he has been getting more mileage out of his changeup, slider and curveball this season, it's hard to believe that he would become a radically different pitcher, at least in terms of his strikeout profile, in his age-35 season. He's a guy who should be widely owned in mixed leagues, but his value will come down as his strikeout totals regress to where they likely belong. Now is the time to be pricing Lohse and seeing what he can fetch in a trade. Chances are the window to sell high won't be open too much longer.
