Lohse refused his assignment to Triple-A Round Rock and is now a free agent.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse went 0-2 with a 12.54 ERA in his two starts with the Rangers this season. He was better at Round Rock, but not by much, as he posted a 5.06 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. The 37-year-old's performance has drastically declined in recent seasons, particularly when it comes to his susceptibility to allow home runs, so it's hard to imagine a team being eager to sign him at this point in time.

Lohse was designated for assignment Tuesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse was rocked in two major league starts recently, giving up six and seven earned runs, respectively, on his way to two losses and the Rangers have now decided to send him back to the minors on assignment. If the 37-year-old doesn't get picked up by another big league club during his waiver period, he'll likely remain with Triple-A Round Rock where he's compiled a 5.06 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 10 starts this season.

Lohse is not a lock to stick in the Rangers' rotation, as either he or Nick Martinez will start Tuesday against the A's, the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is really no reason to be using Lohse in any format. He really struggles to miss bats (6.3 percent K-rate) and he gets hit hard, hence his 12.54 ERA through two starts. Even if he does get the start over Martinez on Tuesday, Lohse will likely be bumped from the rotation once the Rangers get healthy or once they acquire another pitcher via trade.

Lohse (0-2) allowed seven runs on six hits and three walks over 4.1 innings in a loss Tuesday to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse gave up two home runs again after serving up a pair of homers in his first outing July 9 against the Twins. He was doomed by the home run ball last year with Milwaukee, as he surrendered 29 in just 22 starts and finished with a 1.7 HR/9 that was by far a career high. He posted a 5.85 ERA last season as a result, and he isn't showing that he's fixed the problem thus far with the Rangers.

Lohse (oblique) has been cleared to start as scheduled Tuesday following a pain-free bullpen Saturday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse struggled in his lone start at the major-league level this season, and was struggling to find much success at Triple-A Round Rock prior to his promotion so it's hard to envision a situation where Lohse will be a fantasy asset in his current form,

Lohse (oblique) has been able to play catch but will likely need a pain-free bullpen session over the weekend before being cleared to start Tuesday as scheduled, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse allowed six runs in six innings in his season debut prior to the All-Star break after struggling to the tune of a 5.06 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock this season. Healthy or not, you'd have to be pretty desperate to be relying on Lohse at this point.

Lohse has been diagnosed with tightness in his right oblique, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse noticed the issue early in Saturday's start against the Twins, but he continued to pitch because he knew the Texas bullpen needed some rest. He ultimately gave up six runs over six innings, after struggling at Triple-A Round Rock (5.06 ERA) for the first few months of the season. Even if the injury heals quickly, there's no assurance Lohse sticks in the starting rotation after the All-Star break.

Lohse's contract was purchased from Triple-A Round Rock and he will start Saturday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Nick Martinez, who was expected to start Saturday, was optioned to Double-A Frisco as a corresponding move. Lohse hasn't pitched particularly well at Round Rock, posting a 5.06 ERA and 41 strikeouts in 58.2 innings (10 starts). It's a testament to how desperate the Rangers are for healthy starting pitchers that they have summoned Lohse. He should be avoided in most formats, as his K-rate will be well below average and he should struggle to prevent runs.

Lose made his first start at Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse is expected to provide a veteran swing-man option with Texas once he gets some innings under his belt in the minors, but he'll have to bide time waiting for injury before getting any sort of look in the rotation.

Lohse will report to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday and will be activated shortly thereafter, Rangers VP of Communications John Blake reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lohse was inked to a minor league deal Friday after throwing in a showcase earlier in May. He's set to join the Rangers' Triple-A affiliate Sunday and will likely be inserted into the rotation during the week.
