Colby Lewis: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis announced Friday that he has ended his playing career and has accepted a position in the Rangers' front office, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Lewis, 38, spent 11 seasons in the majors with the Rangers, Tigers and Athletics, with nine of those years coming in Texas. He wraps up his career with a 77-72 record, 4.47 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 233 appearances (195 starts).

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Will start Game 3 of ALDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis will start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Blue Jays on Sunday, Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake reports.

Lewis will have over a week off to rest up for this one, as he wrapped up his regular season last Saturday by tossing 6.1 innings without allowing an earned run. He lasted seven innings in both of his regular season starts against Toronto this year and struck out a season-high seven the first time out, so he'll look for another strong outing in Sunday's Game 3.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Lets up seven runs in loss to A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (6-4) lost after allowing seven runs on seven hits and one walk with no strikeouts in 1.1 innings during Sunday's 7-1 loss to the A's.

After starting off with a scoreless first inning, Lewis went off the rails in the second, exiting after Ryon Healy's two-run homer made it 7-0 Oakland. Lewis has now lost all three of his starts since coming off the disabled list earlier this month, and he appears to still be shaking off some rust after missing more than two months. Sunday's outing raised his ERA from 3.40 to 3.93, and was the first time in 18 starts this year that he failed to complete five innings. He'll look to bounce back Saturday against the Rays at home.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Loses to Athletics Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis allowed three runs on three hits and five walks across 5.1 innings in Sunday's loss to the Athletics. He struck out four.

Lewis struggled with his command Sunday, tossing just 52 percent of his pitches for strikes, and he allowed the A's to take the lead for good with a two-run rally in the sixth inning before he was pulled from the game. Lewis is a candidate to nail down the third spot in the rotation during the postseason, but he will need to shake off the rust, as he was making just his second start since late June on Sunday. He will have the opportunity to get back on track Saturday against this same Oakland club.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Lewis takes loss in return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis fell to 6-2 after allowing three runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks with five strikeouts in 5.1 innings during Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Angels.

Lewis looked a little rusty after spending most of the summer on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, surrendering a trio of solo homers in his first start since June 21. He was also working on a pitch count, as he was removed after just 86 pitches. The 37-year-old was pitching some of the best baseball of his career before landing on the DL, going 6-1 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 15 starts, so he could offer a boost to fantasy owners down the stretch. He'll look to rebound in a friendly matchup against the last-place A's at home next Sunday.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Activated, starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Sunday.

Lewis is ready to return to action after missing over two months with his shoulder injury. He will jump right into the Rangers' rotation Sunday and take the ball against the Angels. He has defeated them twice this season, but they tagged him for six earned runs in their last matchup.

September 10, 2016 09:13 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Angels.

The 37-year-old was eyeing a Saturday return earlier in the week, but will instead toe the rubber Sunday opposite Jered Weaver in his first start since June 21. Lewis was very useful in 15 starts before hitting the shelf, going 6-1 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.02 WHIP, but he was knocked around for 20 hits in three rehab outings (spanning 11 innings), so it may be best to wait and see in mixed leagues.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Targeting Saturday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) hopes to rejoin the Rangers' rotation Saturday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lewis was tagged for four earned runs over five innings Monday in his third rehab start, but he was able to throw 66 pitches in the game and did not report any issues afterward, so he should be ready to go this weekend. Lewis' next outing could be pushed to Sunday with fellow starter Cole Hamels currently lined up to start Saturday, but Hamels could get an extra day of rest after being touched up in his last two outings, which would allow Lewis to take the ball Saturday as expected.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Will make one more rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) will make another rehab start Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lewis was knocked around in his last rehab start Tuesday, so the Rangers want him to throw once more in the minors before bringing him back from the disabled list. Lewis did throw 60 pitches his last time out, so as long as he is able throw a similar number or more and hold his own Monday, there is a good chance his next appearance would come with the big club.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Strugglesin second rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) admitted that he's still struggling to find his rhythm on the mound after a poor second rehab start Tuesday, Ryan Posner of reports. "I'm just trying to get arm strength up, trying to get my pitch count up," Lewis said. "Of course you don't want to go out and give up runs or give up hits, or anything like that. I kind of feel like I'm still in spring training form right now. I just don't feel like I'm very sharp."

Lewis had been targeting a return to the rotation this weekend but the poor results Tuesday may alter those plans.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Set to make rehab start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) will throw 65 pitches in a rehab start Monday at Double-A Frisco, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Monday marks Lewis' second rehab outing since landing on the disabled list with a lat strain in June. Lewis allowed one earned run over 2.2 innings in his first appearance, but he's expected to stretch out to closer to four innings Monday. If all goes well, Lewis should remain on track for a return in early-to-mid September.

August 25, 2016 10:59 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Set to return Sept. 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) is in line to return to the rotation Sept. 3, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The move is contingent on Lewis making it through Monday's rehab outing without incident, and would put him in line to face the Astros in his first start back. Before making an official determination though, he's set to throw about 65 pitches at either Double-A Frisco or Triple-A Round Rock in his second -- and potentially final -- rehab start.

August 19, 2016 04:21 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Set for rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) will throw three innings in a rehab start for Double-A San Antonio on Wednesday, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

The Rangers had circled Aug. 24 for the start of Lewis' rehab assignment and he will indeed hit that target, having built up to 41 pitches in a recent side session. Lewis figures to require at least one additional rehab outing beyond Wednesday to build his pitch count up further but he appears on track for an early-September return to the rotation.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Could begin rehab assignment August 24
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) will throw live batting practice Friday with an eye toward a rehab start on Aug. 24, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Lewis was able to throw 41 pitches in the bullpen Tuesday, but will likely need at least three starts in the minors before he's ready to rejoin the Texas rotation.

August 16, 2016 06:03 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Set for live batting practice session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) will throw live batting practice in Tampa on Friday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

On the heels of a successful 41-pitch standard bullpen session Tuesday, Lewis is now set to face live hitters in what will likely be his final test before heading out on a minor league rehab assignment. The peripherals don't support an ERA anywhere close to Lewis' current 3.21 mark, but he was one of the Rangers' more reliable starters before going down and there's no doubt that he'll have a rotation spot waiting for him.

August 14, 2016 10:12 AM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Throws bullpen session Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Ryan Posner of reports.

Lewis will ramp up his activities, including an expected 40-pitch session Tuesday, before beginning a rehab assignment with an eye toward an early September activation.

Rangers' Colby Lewis: Could be cleared for mound work next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) could be cleared to resume throwing from the mound next week, T,R, Sullivan of reports.

Lewis is traveling with the team and throwing from flat ground and is expected to be given clearance to throw from the mound following an MRI next Wednesday. An early September return seems likely at this point.

August 5, 2016 08:50 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Will throw from 120 feet Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (shoulder) is set to throw from 120 feet Saturday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lewis resumed throwing in recent weeks and is now set to ramp up the intensity of baseball activities as his rehab from a lat strain progresses. If all goes well with long toss Saturday, the veteran starting pitcher hopes to throw off a mound to a catcher in front of home plate Sunday.

July 29, 2016 11:24 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Could throw from mound late next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (lat) continues to throw from flat ground but could progress to mound work by late next week, T.R. Sullivaan of reports.

Lewis is eligible to return from the 60-day DL on August 21, but his current rehab progress puts a return in early September the most likely scenario. Lewis was 6-1 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.02 WHIP before being injured.

July 27, 2016 05:40 PM
Rangers' Colby Lewis: Continues progressing to rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (lat) has felt good in recent workouts and is expected to return at the end of August, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The team plans to have Lewis make two or three rehab starts, then join the team in the last week of August. Before being injured, Lewis had been enjoying one of the best seasons of his career, as he's 6-1 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.
