by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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.

Lewis (8-8) gave up six hits and one walk in his nine scoreless innings while striking out seven and throwing 110 pitches. It's just the second complete-game shutout of his career. Lewis owns a 5.50 ERA and 91:35 K:BB ratio in 111 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rays Monday.


Colby Lewis surrenders two home runs in win Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis picked up a win Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out four in his team's 3-2 victory over the Yankees.

Lewis (7-8) gave up a pair of solo home runs, one in the first inning and one in the third, but he was able to put the breaks on a three-start losing streak Wednesday. He owns a 5.98 ERA and 84:34 K:BB ratio in 102 1/3 innings. Lewis is slated to face the White Sox Tuesday.


Colby Lewis tossed quality start Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis tossed a quality start Thursday against the Yankees.

Lewis gave up three runs on four hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked three during the outing. Lewis started out well, tossing three scoreless innings to begin the game. He seemed to tire as the game progressed.

In the fourth, Lewis gave up a leadoff double to Brett Gardner. Gardner came around to score on a single, giving the Yankees a one-run lead. In the fifth, Lewis gave up two walks, a double and a sacrifice fly, giving up another two runs.

With the loss, Lewis dropped to 6-8 on the year. His next start will come against the Yankees.
