Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Kyle Lohse won't be traded as the club has reportedly decided to hold on to the veteran.

According to's Ken Rosenthal Lohse was claimed off waivers and then pulled back by the Brewers after they did not see a potential trade match with the claiming team.

Teams usually put the majority of their roster on waivers in August because there's no penalty to pull players back as the Brewers did with Lohse. After the non-waiver trade deadline of July 31 players must clear waivers or be moved to their claiming team in order to be moved.

Signed to a three-year $33 million contract just prior to Opening Day Lohse is 7-7 with a 3.23 ERA in 23 starts for the Brewers this season. The 34-year-old hit a rough patch in May in which he pitched through elbow and hamstring injuries but Lohse has a 2.37 ERA in his last 13 starts.
