Colby Lewis lost to the Padres on Monday, serving up six runs (five earned) in 5 2/3 innings.
The Padres scored only twice through the first five innings, but they plated four runs in the sixth and chased Lewis from the game. Overall, the right-hander gave up seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out two on the evening. While 2015 has been an improvement on the previous season, his 4.50 ERA isn't too desirable. Lewis will look for better results in a road start versus the Angels. Sep 1 - 1:06 AM

Colby Lewis fired seven scoreless innings in Friday's victory over the Tigers, scattering six hits and a walk in the process.

The veteran right-hander struck out two on the night. With the victory, he now sits at an impressive 13-5 on the season while sporting a 4.29 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. He'll look to continue what has been a terrific bounce-back effort in his age-35 season when he squares off against the Blue Jays on Thursday.
Aug 21 - 10:33 PM

Colby Lewis delivered six innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Rangers' rout of the Rays.

Lewis was staked to an early lead and cruised, scattering five hits and two walks over his six solid frames. He struck out four. Lewis, 36, will carry a 4.49 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Tigers.
Aug 15 - 11:22 PM

Colby Lewis struggled with the home run in Sunday's loss to the Mariners, allowing two gopher balls and four total runs (three earned) in pitching an eight-inning complete game.

Lewis surrendered a two-run home run to Jesus Montero in the fourth inning and a solo shot to Nelson Cruz in the sixth to account for three of the four runs he allowed on the day. He pitched well when he kept the ball in the park, piling up six strikeouts and scattering five hits over his eight innings of work. Home runs are nothing new for the 36-year-old right-hander, who's now served up 21 of them in 23 starts. He'll take a 4.61 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 110/27 K/BB ratio over 146 1/3 innings into his next start, a home showdown with the Rays.
Aug 9 - 6:51 PM

Colby Lewis struggled against the Astros, allowing seven runs in six innings, but still managed to walk away with his 12th win of the season on Monday.

The Rangers gave him plenty of run support, scoring six times in the first inning and five times in the third. Lewis allowed two big hits: a two-run home run to Carlos Correa in the first, and a grand slam to Jason Castro in the fourth. They were two of 10 hits the Astros accrued along with a walk while the right-hander struck out three. Lewis has 12 wins, including wins in each of his last four starts, despite an ugly 4.68 ERA. He'll go for five in a row in Seattle against the Mariners next.
Aug 3 - 11:54 PM

Colby Lewis allowed two runs over six innings Wednesday in a win over the Yankees.

Lewis struck out five and walked none in winning for the 11th time this season. He's one of just 12 pitchers in baseball with that many victories, though his ERA is a far less impressive 4.42. In fairness, the ERA reflects a couple of huge beatings and doesn't perfectly reflect how well he's pitched, either. Still, there isn't really any mixed-league value here.
Jul 30 - 12:45 AM

Colby Lewis held the Angels to two runs over 7 2/3 innings in the Rangers' 4-2 win Friday.

Lewis just upped his record to 10-4, though his 4.49 ERA is quite a bit less impressive. The poor ERA is partly a result of him being left in to give up 10 earned runs against the Angels on July 5 and nine earned runs against the Indians on May 27, but the 10-4 record probably overstates how well he's pitched. Nonetheless, he could be trade fodder if the Rangers decide to sell.
Jul 25 - 1:13 AM

Colby Lewis held the Astros to two earned runs over 7 1/3 innings Saturday in a Rangers victory.

Lewis struck out seven, walked none, and gave up only four hits in the very strong outing. He has an ugly 4.63 ERA on the season, but his 1.21 WHIP and 9-4 record have rather surprisingly offered some deep-league fantasy value. The veteran gets the Angels on the road next.
Jul 18 - 11:06 PM

Colby Lewis was absolutely annihilated in Sunday's loss to the Angels, surrendering 10 runs on 12 hits over his four-plus innings of work.

The veteran right-hander walked a pair and struck out one on the night. The Angels broke the game open with a three-run uprising in the first inning, and tacked in on every inning that Lewis worked, including the fifth. After a strong start to the season, he now owns a troublesome 4.83 ERA and 4.52 xFIP through 104 1/3 innings. He'll look to finish the first half on a high note when he does battle against the Padres on Saturday.
Jul 5 - 10:18 PM

Colby Lewis struggled but still got the win on Tuesday against the Orioles, allowing five runs (three earned) in six innings.

Lewis was victimized early when Chris Davis launched a two-run home run in the first inning. Davis repeated the performance in the third inning, and Manny Machado hit a solo home run in the fifth inning. The three home runs accounted for half of the hits Lewis gave up on the evening. He walked none and struck out three. The right-hander held the opposition to three earned runs or fewer in all six June starts and now owns a 4.13 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and a 74/20 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings. Lewis faces the Angels at home next.
Jun 30 - 10:02 PM

Colby Lewis took a no-decision, allowing three runs in six innings as the Rangers suffered a loss to the Athletics on Thursday.

Lewis blanked the A's through four innings, but relented two runs in a Sam Fuld single in the fifth and another in the sixth on Josh Reddick's sacrifice fly. He gave up five hits overall while walking three and striking out three. Lewis has registered quality starts in all five June outings and now stands with a 4.10 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a 71/20 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings. He'll look to continue his streak in Baltimore against the Orioles next week.
Jun 25 - 5:46 PM

Colby Lewis improved to 7-3 after tossing eight innings of one-run ball against the White Sox on Friday.

Lewis allowed nine hits, but the only run scored on a solo homer from Tyler Flowers in the fifth inning. He struck out seven and walked none. Lewis was actually in line for the loss until pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland delivered a two-run single off David Robertson in the ninth. The 35-year-old has won three straight decisions and has allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his last four starts. He'll bring a 4.08 ERA into a start against the Athletics next week at home.
Jun 19 - 11:55 PM

Colby Lewis pitched well in Saturday's win over the Twins, surrendering three runs on four hits over seven innings.

Lewis struck out six over the course of the game. All three runs against him came in the third inning, when Lewis allowed a two-run double to Eddie Rosario and an RBI double to Joe Mauer. Lewis has been all over the map this season--he started the year allowing 12 runs in his first seven starts, 19 runs in his next three and eight runs in his last three. His 4.37 ERA and 1.20 are indicative of the average quality of his season as a whole. He'll face the Dodgers in his next start as he tries to keep his recent decent run going.
Jun 13 - 9:45 PM

Colby Lewis surrendered three runs over seven innings in Sunday's no-decision loss to the Royals.

Lewis did a relatively good job of limiting the damage, but the Royals managed to score three runs by the time the veteran right-hander left the game. He struck out five and walked one in the contest while surrendering eight hits over seven innings. Lewis has been the definition of a hot/cold pitcher this season, allowing 12 runs in his first seven starts, 19 runs in his next three, and five runs in his last two. All of this adds up to average, as he holds a 4.42 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. He'll take those numbers home to face the Twins next Saturday afternoon.
Jun 7 - 4:46 PM

Colby Lewis held the White Sox to two runs over seven innings in a win Tuesday.

Lewis scattered six hits, with Adam Eaton's two-run homer in the third inning accounting for both the White Sox runs on the night. The win moved Lewis to 5-3 with a 4.48 ERA on the year. Lewis will face the Royals in Kansas City on Sunday.
