Lohse/Cardinals Deal Official

TODAY: Lohse passed his physical; it’s official.

THURSDAY: According to Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals signed Kyle Lohse to a one-year deal (pending a physical).

The deal is worth $4.25MM plus incentives, a fine deal by John Mozeliak.  The Cardinals needed some depth, and Lohse offers upside beyond just innings (especially under Dave Duncan).  Lohse has to be bummed – he was looking for ten times what he received.  On the other hand, he’s still set for life.
