Rangers starting pitcher Colby Lewis missed most of the second half of the 2012 season after tearing a flexor tendon in his throwing elbow, which required surgery to repair. Saturday, he'll throw the first of six scheduled bullpen sessions, reports Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest.
Once Lewis completes the sessions, a further course of action will be decided upon.
Before being shut down last season, Lewis, 33, was 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in 105 innings. He's been a stellar postseason pitcher for the Rangers, sporting a 2.34 ERA in eight career postseason starts.
This wasn't the first surgery in Lewis' career. He actually had shoulder surgery early in his big-league career and Tommy John surgery -- note the scar on his elbow in the above picture -- while he was in high school.
