Free-agent pitcher Kyle Lohse has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Texas Rangers, reports the MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.
Lohse, 37, remained a free agent through the beginning of this season after his three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers expired at the end of last year.
Lohse pitched for a 5.85 ERA with the Brewers last season in 37 games, splitting time between the starting rotation and the bullpen. Lohse has spent the majority of his career as a starting pitcher, and the Rangers have reportedly indicated they want to use him as a starter.
