Rangers Won't Sign Kyle Lohse

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Rangers were keeping in contact with agent Scott Boras regarding Kyle Lohse.  However, a club source says tells T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that Texas won't be the team to take the top remaining free agent off of the market.

We are not going to sign Kyle Lohse. I can’t be clearer than that," said the source.

Some wondered if the Rangers might ramp up their pursuit of Lohse in the wake of Martin Perez's injury, given that the fractured ulna will keep him from throwing for about a month.  However, it looks like Jon Daniels & Co. will instead look to get by with what they already have in-house.  

Even though Lohse has sat on the shelf for much longer than anyone anticipated, Boras is reportedly seeking a three-year deal with a "big" annual salary.  It's still not clear which teams could be in on the 34-year-old as the Yankees and Indians are also not interested in signing him.  Recently, Tim Dierkes predicted that Lohse would eventually settle for a one- or two-year deal.

Texas added a pitcher earlier today in Derek Lowe but the veteran will reportedly be used as a reliever if he makes the team.
