Indians' Lewis needs rest, not surgery
(4/12/2009) Indians left-hander Scott Lewis will not throw for five to 10 days because of a strained left forearm. Trainer Lonnie Soloff confirmed Sunday that an MRI showed no structural damage but some inflammation. "Scott has a moderate left forearm strain," Soloff said. "We hope for an expected return of two to four weeks. This is highly encouraging news." The Indians were concerned that the injury was more serious when they placed the 25-year-old on the 15-day DL on Saturday. Lewis said then he had felt some discomfort for two or three weeks. "I've pitched through some soreness and it usually fades away," said Lewis, who had Tommy John surgery as a sophomore at Ohio State in 2003. "I thought this would be the same, but on my last pitch, it really tightened up on me." Lewis threw 94 pitches over 4 1/3 innings Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Lewis has another bad spring start
(3/31/2009) Cleveland SP Scott Lewis can't wait to leave Arizona. Lewis has struggled since being named Cleveland's No. 4 starter and allowed 10 earned runs on 13 hits in 3 2/3 innings in Tuesday's exhibition game against Seattle. In two starts since manager Eric Wedge announced that the rookie left-hander had earned a spot in the rotation, Lewis has allowed 15 runs, 21 hits and six homers in only 6 2/3 innings. "It's no excuse, but it is so dry out here that it is tough to get a good grip on the ball," said Lewis, who went 4-0 with a 2.63 ERA in his first four starts in the majors last September. "My delivery was off, I fell behind hitters and didn't have a breaking ball because I didn't have a grip," Lewis continued. "When major leaguers know all you've got is a fastball they are going to look for it and hit it."
With role secured, Lewis struggles

"He didn't have a feel for the baseball today, and he left some pitches up," Wedge said. "The way he's been pitching, he was due for one of these days. He's had an outstanding camp." Lewis now has a 5.40 ERA.

Lewis the leading No. 5 candidate
(3/24/2009) From the The Sports Xchange: Left-hander Scott Lewis, who was outstanding in a September call-up to the Indians last year, has moved to the front of the pack of candidates for the No. 5 spot in the rotation. Manager Eric Wedge has said Lewis "has had as good a camp as any starter we have." The 25-year-old Lewis is competing with Aaron Laffey and Zach Jackson for the fifth spot in the rotation. In his outing against Oakland, Lewis displayed the same characteristics he showed when he went 4-0 in four September starts. Lewis picked a good time to make a move in the competition for that opening in the rotation. With less than two weeks left in training camp, time is running short for the other candidates to make an impression. Indians officials will likely have to make a decision soon on that No. 5 spot.
