FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by major-league sources that the Rangers remain in contact with free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse.
T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com was told by a Rangers' source last week that the club wasn't going to sign Lohse, but it appears they haven't ruled out the possibility entirely. For what it's worth, Lohse's agent, Scott Boras, tells Rosenthal that multiple teams have been in contact. "He's doing his workouts, and we've continued talking with a number of teams," said Boras. "...A lot of teams are evaluating their existing situations, but have called and have interest in Kyle." Lohse's market has failed to develop because he is tied to draft pick compensation, but one major league executive tells Rosenthal that he's still looking for a three-year deal with a "big" annual salary.
