Kyle Lohse turned in a quality start on Saturday against the Rockies, throwing six innings of four hit, three run ball. Unfortunately for Lohse, the Brewers' bats could only generate one run for him. He struck out five and walked one batter.

Fantasy Impact: It was Lohse's fifth quality start of the season. Congratulations to the miniscule percentage of fantasy players who started Lohse at Coors field and got some WHIP help for their fantasy rosters. He's been rumored as a trade candidate, and depending on where he goes, he could be worth a look as a streaming option in deeper formats with a better offense supporting him. That's about as good as it could get for Lohse this season.
