Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis gives up three runs in outing Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/22/15) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis was able to go five innings Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits over 70 pitches. Lewis struck out just one and felt he needed to labor throughout the outing Sunday, reports MLB.com.
"I felt like I had to grind," Lewis said. "My stuff was actually pretty decent, but I felt like I checked in for work. I had to work out of some jams, but after the first couple of innings, I was able to keep the ball down and my control started to kick in."

|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/4/15) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis struggled on the mound in his spring training debut Wednesday, allowing six runs in his only inning of work. He threw 36 pitches, but managed to get three strikeouts.
"I actually felt great, threw a lot of strikes," said Lewis, a notoriously poor starter in spring training. "Of course, the results aren't what you want, but it is what it is."

Colby Lewis agrees to one-year, $4 million deal with Rangers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/4/14) The Rangers re-signed starting pitcher Colby Lewis to a one-year contract on Thursday. The deal is for $4 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Lewis, who missed the 2013 season due to elbow and hip injuries, went 10-14 with a 5.18 ERA in 29 starts in 2014. He is 54-56 with a 4.78 ERA in seven seasons with the Rangers. He is 25-25 with a 5.16 ERA in his career at the Rangers' home stadium.
Rangers GM expects to finalize deal with Colby Lewis this week
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/2/14) Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told reporters he expects starting pitcher Colby Lewis to return to the team next season. A deal between both sides could be reached bu this weekend, he indicated, reports the Dallas Morning News.
Lewis finished 10-14 with a 5.18 ERA and 211 hits allowed in 170 1/3 innings.
|2014 summary: After missing 2013 because of elbow surgery, Colby Lewis returned to make 29 starts for the Rangers in 2014. But he wasn't the pitcher he was before the surgery, the one who came out of nowhere with back-to-back-to-back seasons of mixed-league relevance. His 5.18 ERA ranked second to last among qualifying starting pitchers, and his strikeout rate fell to a mediocre 7.0 per nine innings. |
Playing time status: Lewis didn't have Tommy John surgery in 2013 but a procedure to repair a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. So far, the returns from that procedure among big-leaguers are mixed. Ben Sheets wasn't the same after his, and Lewis may be following the same path.
2015 outlook: The Rangers still see something they like in Lewis, who is the favorite for the fourth spot in the starting rotation heading into the season, and maybe there's another explanation for his struggles. After all, he didn't lose any velocity with the procedure. Still, starting pitcher is deep enough that you shouldn't need to bother with him outside of AL-only leagues.
