Several media outlets reported the deal Monday. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because an official announcement was expected later in the day.
The 34-year-old Lohse joined the Brewers exactly a week before they're set to open the season at home against Colorado.
Lohse enjoyed his best season in the majors last year, going 16-3 with a 2.86 ERA and helping the St. Louis Cardinals earn an NL wild-card spot. He is 118-109 lifetime with a 4.45 ERA in 12 seasons with Minnesota, Cincinnati, Philadelphia and St. Louis.
