|Colby Lewis drops second straight, falls below .500 |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/19/14) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis fell below .500 as he dropped his second decision in a row Saturday, in a 4-1 loss to the Blue Jays.
Lewis didn't pitch poorly, though he was constantly working his way out of trouble as he allowed eight hits and three walks in five innings of work. He limited the Blue Jays to two runs in his five innings, while striking out five batters on 106 pitches.
Lewis fell to 6-7 with the loss, while his ERA actually fell slightly, to 6.37. Lewis' next start is set for Thursday against the Yankees in New York.

(7/13/14) Rangers manager Ron Washington said his rotation after the All-Star break will be Yu Darvish, Colby Lewis and Nick Tepesch, with the other two spots up in the air, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Washington also mentioned Miles Mikolas as a candidate to start.

|Colby Lewis has disaster start Thursday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/10/14) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis was destroyed by the Angels Thursday.
Lewis lasted just 2 1/3 innings. He gave up 13 runs, 11 of which were earned. He did not issue any walks, but did manage to strike out a batter. Despite the high run total, Lewis gave up just one home run during the outing.
Lewis started off the game by giving up four straight hits. While the next two batters made out, both managed to pick up RBIs. Lewis allowed four runs after one inning of work. The second was even worse. Lewis again gave up four straight hits to open the frame. After a sacrifice fly, Lewis allowed two more hits. Howie Kendrick then grounded into a double-play, which also brought home a run. Lewis gave up six runs during the inning, though two were unearned.
The third inning wound up being his last. After allowing two straight singles, Lewis gave up a three-run homer to Mike Trout. The hit would chase Lewis from the game. The loss drops him to 6-6 on the year.
|Colby Lewis secures sixth win of the season |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/5/14) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis put together a quality start on Saturday against the Mets, improving to 6-5 on the year. The right-hander permitted three runs -- two earned -- on eight hits and no walks while striking out seven over six innings of work.
Lewis has allowed only two earned runs in each of his last two starts. He owns a 5.51 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP over 15 starts (81 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Thursday at home against the Angels.
|Rangers alter rotation plans as Joe Saunders taken off roster |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/1/14) A day after allowing four home runs in a loss to the Orioles, Rangers starting pitcher Joe Saunders was designated for assignment Tuesday. The team recalled pitcher Miles Mikolas from Triple-A Round Rock to replace Saunders, and he will start Wednesday against Baltimore.
The Rangers also announced Nick Tepesch has been moved back to Friday against the Mets. Yu Darvish will still start Thursday against Baltimore and Colby Lewis will now start Saturday against New York. Nick Martinez, who is starting Tuesday, will remain on regular rest and start Sunday.
|Fantasy owners knew they'd be in for a wait when they drafted Colby Lewis last season. He was still working his way back from surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow the previous season and probably wouldn't make it back until June. But as the months went by and his projected return kept getting pushed back, it soon became clear he wouldn't be coming back at all. The final blow was a hip issue in early August that required a resurfacing surgery similar to a hip replacement. The good news is Lewis comes into spring training completely recovered from both surgeries. The bad news is no one knows if he'll be the same pitcher anymore at age 34. The elbow surgery in particular was less than a slam dunk, and his seven rehab starts last year were nothing short of dreadful. The Derek Holland injury opens the door for Lewis to reclaim a rotation spot, and no doubt, he's the one Fantasy owners want to see win it given his 3.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings from 2010 to 2012. But until he proves he's back to form, you can leave him for AL-only leagues.
