Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch hears that the Cardinals' interest in bringing back free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse is "negligible at this time."

The possibility was given new life after the news broke that Chris Carpenter is unlikely to pitch in 2013, but the Cardinals appear prepared to rely on in-house options like Trevor Rosenthal, Shelby Miller and Joe Kelly. It's worth noting that the Cardinals will receive a draft pick if Lohse signs elsewhere.
