News: Lohse had a nightmare start Monday, allowing eight runs in 3.1 innings in a blowout loss to the Rockies on Opening Day.
Impact: Lohse was very successful for the Brewers last season, but has gotten off to a rough start here in 2015. The veteran allowed 10 hits and two home runs in his first start of the season. He'll try to right the ship against the Pirates this weekend.

News: Manager Ron Roenicke indicated Friday that Lohse will start for the Brewers on Opening Day against the Rockies, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Lohse was probably the favorite to receive the Opening Day nod for the Brewers coming into camp, and nothing has occurred to change it. The veteran posted another solid season in 2014, finishing the campaign with a 3.54 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 141 strikeouts over 198.1 innings.
