|(9/21/14) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis got knocked around Saturday against the Angels.
Lewis allowed eight runs, seven earned, on nine hits over five innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. After giving up a run in the first inning, home runs became a big issue for Lewis. After Kole Calhoun reached on an error to start the third inning, Lewis gave up a two-run shot against Mike Trout. Things got worse in the fifth inning. After a Trout triple, Albert Pujols clubbed a two-run shot. After two singles, David Freese added a three-run shot.
With the loss, Lewis dropped to 10-14. He’ll take on the Athletics in his next start.
Colby Lewis carves up Braves in Sunday victory
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/14/14) Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis concluded a surprising sweep of free-falling Atlanta on Sunday and managed his finest start since an Aug. 5 shutout in the process.
Lewis yielded just one run on five hits in seven innings while walking one and fanning two. He would have pitched shutout ball if not for a Ryan Doumit homer in the seventh. Lewis has given up just three earned runs in his last 14 innings pitched and has raised his record on the year to 10-13.
His next start is scheduled for Saturday against the host Angels.
Colby Lewis takes loss in quality start vs. Angels
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/9/14) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis was stuck with a loss Tuesday, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits in seven-plus innings while striking out four in his team's 9-3 defeat against the Angels.
Lewis (9-13) surrendered a solo home run in the first inning and an unearned run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth. He allowed the first batter of the eighth inning to reach on an infield single and came out of the game, and the Angels exploded for seven runs in the inning after he left. Lewis owns a 5.29 ERA and 121:41 K:BB ratio in 151 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Braves 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.
