Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis knocked around for 10 hits in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:14 am ET) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis allowed three runs on 10 hits in Texas' 3-1 loss to the Mariners Saturday. 

Lewis worked efficiently through the first three innings before running into issues in the fourth. Lewis allowed a sacrifice fly to Seth Smith, allowing Robinson Cano to score. Then in the fifth, Lewis surrendered a leadoff home run to Mike Zunino.

"I thought he settled in nicely and pitched a heckuva game," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said to MLB.com. "He made pitches and he mixed pitches. I felt good with the way Colby was throwing."

Brad Miller then tripled in the sixth, driving in Kyle Seager, before getting pulled.

"There wasn't one inning that was easy," Lewis said. "I didn't get any quick innings. I was always working out of the stretch. I was just trying to keep it close like I always do."

Lewis, now 1-1, boasts a 3.79 ERA and will look to get back on track Saturday against the Angels.

Marwin Gonzalez then doubled home Rasmus. Jake Marisnick homered to deep left center, driving in Gonzalez before Lewis was able to stop the bleeding.

Colby Lewis gets knocked around Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Over his last three starts covering 21 innings, Lewis has allowed four earned runs. He owns a 5.42 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP over 21 starts (116 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at home against the Angels.

Colby Lewis becomes relevant again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/6/2014) Now, when I say a player is relevant, understand that it's not meant as a ringing endorsement. I've moved Colby Lewis up in my rankings, yes, but only to 118th, so if you ask me, his 12 percent ownership rate is closer to being right than wrong. Still, after his complete game shutout against the White Sox Tuesday, I have to admit I'm intrigued.

If not for a 13-run disaster (but only 11 of them earned -- ha!) against the Angels on July 10, he'd be on a nice little run here. Remove it from the equation, and he has a 2.54 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 7.6 strikeouts per nine innings in his last six starts. No joke.

And for all of his injuries over the last 2 1/2 years, his stuff hasn't suffered too much, at least not in terms of velocity. He wasn't exactly an ace before all that started, but he was a low-WHIP guy with an above-average stirkeout rate, as he's been lately.

Maybe rust played a bigger part in Lewis' struggles than our short-term memories allowed us to believe. Maybe after taking some lumps, he's just now learned how to pitch again. I wouldn't bet on it -- 118th, remember? -- but another couple starts like Tuesday's could quickly elevate him to streaming status.


Colby Lewis twirls complete-game shutout vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2014) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis received a ton of run support en route to delivering a complete-game shutout in Tuesday's 16-0 win over the White Sox.
