Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Colby Lewis, Tim Lincecum, and Scott Kazmir are among several free agent pitchers who "intrigue" the Marlins.
The Marlins are hoping to sign one or two pitchers to add to a rotation which is tentatively set to include Jose Fernandez, Tom Koehler, and Jarred Cosart. The free agent class is stacked with big-name starting pitchers, but Miami is hoping to find a bargain. Kazmir figures to land the biggest contract of the group in question, so Lewis and Lincecum could be more realistic targets. Nov 11 - 11:23 AM

Colby Lewis underwent surgery on Friday to repair the meniscus in his left knee.

It's unclear how long he had been pitching with the ailment, but he was finally able to have surgery with the Rangers knocked out of the playoffs. Lewis, who is an impending free agent, will be fine by spring training.

Colby Lewis was hit hard in a no-decision against the Angels on Saturday, allowing five runs on six hits over his four-plus innings of work.

Lewis punched out four and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. Most of the damage came in the fifth inning, where the Angels erupted for four runs and chased Lewis from the game before he recorded an out. The veteran right-hander finishes his regular season with a 17-9 record, 4.66 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 142/42 K/BB ratio over 204 2/3 innings.
Oct 3 - 5:14 PM

Colby Lewis lost Monday's start to the Tigers, serving up six runs in 4 2/3 innings.

Tyler Collins struck the big blow, smacking a three-run home run in the fifth inning to make it 4-1. Lewis overall gave up 10 hits and a walk while striking out four. The inconsistent right-hander is 17-9 but holds a 4.53 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 138/42 K/BB ratio over 200 2/3 innings. Lewis will wrap up the regular season with a start at home against the Angels.
Sep 28 - 11:49 PM

Colby Lewis delivered six innings of two-run ball Wednesday in the Rangers' 10-3 rout of the A's.

The 36-year-old Lewis won his career-high 17th game, becoming Texas' first 17-game winner since Scott Feldman turned the trick in 2009. He's particularly feasted on this weak A's offense, coming into tonight 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA in four starts against them. Wins are about all Lewis has going for him in fantasy, as he has a 4.36 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and only 134 strikeouts.
Sep 24 - 1:07 AM

Colby Lewis worked six innings and gave up two runs in a win over the Astros on Thursday.

Lewis has a 4.41 ERA, but he's tied for third in the AL with 16 wins through 30 starts. Next up for him is a favorable matchup against the A's in Oakland.
Sep 17 - 11:41 PM

Colby Lewis flirted with perfection, but ultimately settled for a two-hit shutout in a 4-0 win over the Athletics on Friday.

Lewis gave up two hits and walked none. The veteran right-hander was perfect before Danny Valencia doubled to lead off the eighth inning. He struck out four batters on the night and needed just 97 pitches to go the distance for his career-high 15th win. He'll bring a 4.45 ERA into an important start against the Astros next week at home.
Sep 11 - 11:11 PM

Colby Lewis was knocked around in Sunday's loss to the Angels, yielding seven runs (six earned) on 10 hits over five-plus innings.

Lewis struck out five and walked three on the afternoon. Mike Trout opened the scoring in the first inning with a solo home run and the Angels were off to the races from that point on. With the tough start, Lewis now holds a 4.68 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. There's not much to love on a fantasy level unless your AL-only league is deeper than the Mariana Trench. The veteran right-hander will head home to face the A's in his next start.
Sep 6 - 6:29 PM

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.
