Kyle Lohse won 16 games and posted a 2.86 ERA last season, but remains without a job as pitchers and catchers report to spring training sites in Arizona and Florida.
Kyle McClellan is just as surprised as anyone at that. He pitched with Lohse the past five years with the St. Louis Cardinals, calling him "the most consistent pitcher we had."
"When he went out there, you knew you had a chance to win," McClellan said. "I don't care what his statistical numbers are ... that guy can pitch and he can help a club. I'm sure there are some teams laying in the weeds that would love to have him and he's going to help somebody."
Just don't expect it to be the Rangers. Jon Daniels said the club is unlikely to add any more pitchers.
