Lohse Signs With Crew, Cards Get 28th Pick

Former Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse has signed a three-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers. The contract is worth a reported 33-million-dollars in base salary. He went 16-and-3 with a 2.68 ERA last season for St. Louis, but turned down a one-year deal worth over 13-million for this season. As a result, the Cards will receive the 28th pick in the upcoming draft as compensation.
