According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, the Angels are not expected to pursue free agent starter Kyle Lohse.

Gonzalez notes that the Angels payroll is currently maxed out at $160 million, and that the Halos rotation is currently set. There is also concern within the organization on how Lohse would hold up in the American League. Despire going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with the Cardinals in 2012, Lohse has not received an offer this winter.
