Loe elected free agency last November after declining an outright assignment to Triple-A. The 31-year-old would have been arbitration eligible with a projected salary of $2.6MM, so the Brewers were comfortable removing him from their 40-man roster. He appeared in 70 games last year, posting a 4.61 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9. The Orioles had interest in signing Loe earlier this offseason.
