Colby Lewis was annihilated in Sunday's loss to the Athletics, surrendering seven runs on seven hits in just 1 1/3 innings.
The right-hander also walked one in the abbreviated outing. All of the damage came after working a scoreless first inning, with the final dagger coming on a two-run blast off the bat of Ryon Healy. The Rangers had hoped to get Lewis right down the stretch in preparation to use him in the playoff rotation, but he has been a disaster since his return from the disabled list. He'll take his final turn of the regular season on Saturday against the Rays. Sep 25 - 6:39 PM

Colby Lewis allowed three earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Athletics.

Lewis gave up a solo homer to Khris Davis in the top of the fourth inning and then completely lost his command in Oakland's two-run sixth. He surrendered only three total hits but issued five walks.
Sep 18 - 6:40 PM

Rangers activated RHP Colby Lewis from the 60-day disabled list.

Lewis will rejoin the rotation on Sunday versus the Angels after missing nearly three months with a strained right lat. Fantasy owners should probably hold off on activating him for now if possible.
Sep 11 - 12:36 PM

Colby Lewis (lat) expects to return to the Rangers' rotation on Saturday against the Angels.

Lewis allowed four runs on eight hits over five innings Monday in a rehab start with short-season Spokane, but he had no issues with his right lat muscle. The veteran starter has been out since June, so some rust was to be expected. He had a cool 3.21 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 61/19 K/BB ratio in 98 innings with Texas before landing on the disabled list.
Sep 6 - 8:13 PM

Colby Lewis (lat) will make another rehab start Monday.

It will likely come at Short-Season Spokane. Lewis had been hoping to rejoin the Rangers' rotation this weekend, but the Rangers have decided to give him one final tune-up.
Sep 2 - 5:40 PM

Colby Lewis (lat) is hoping to rejoin the Rangers' rotation on September 3 against the Astros.

Out since late June with a strained right lat, Lewis will make his second and final rehab start with either Double-A Frisco or Triple-A Round Rock on Monday. He surrendered one run on four hits and a walk in 2 2/3 innings for Frisco on Wednesday in his first rehab start.
Aug 26 - 11:28 AM

Colby Lewis (lat) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco on Wednesday.

He'll throw three innings in his first rehab start, so Lewis will need at least one more after that before rejoining the Rangers' rotation. The veteran right-hander has been on the disabled list since late June because of a strained lat muscle.
Aug 19 - 3:51 PM

Colby Lewis (lat) threw a 41-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

He's scheduled for live batting practice on Friday and could begin a rehab assignment on August 24 if that goes well. Lewis has been on the disabled list since late June because of a strained lat muscle.
Aug 16 - 6:01 PM

Colby Lewis (lat) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Saturday.

He’s scheduled to throw a 40-pitch session with more intensity on Tuesday. If that goes well, a rehab assignment for Lewis can't be far off. It seems unlikely that he'll make it back before the end of August. Lewis has been out since late June with a strained lat.
Aug 14 - 12:41 PM

Colby Lewis (lat) is scheduled to throw from 120 feet on Saturday.

Slow and steady progress for the veteran right-hander as he makes his way back from a Grade 2 lat strain. If all goes well, Lewis could progress to mound work on Sunday. He's on track for a return in late August.
Aug 5 - 9:32 PM

Rangers transferred RHP Colby Lewis from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Michael Roth. Lewis is out until at least late August with a Grade 2 lat strain.
Jul 3 - 11:44 AM

Rangers placed RHP Colby Lewis on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right lat muscle.

A.J. Griffin (shoulder) was activated in the corresponding roster move. Lewis is expected to miss about two months after his MRI revealed a Grade 2 lat strain. He was off to a good start before the injury with a 6-1 record through 15 starts. Lewis isn't worth stashing in mixed leagues.
Jun 25 - 6:50 PM

Colby Lewis will miss at least two months with a strained right lat muscle.

After Lewis was pulled from Tuesday's start due to what was thought to be a right triceps cramp, he underwent an MRI which revealed the a Grade 2 strain to his right lat. Lewis will be shut down for the next four weeks, at which point he will undergo another MRI. If that checks out clean, he will then be able to begin a throwing program. The Rangers have not announced who will replace him in the rotation.
Jun 22 - 8:09 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that Colby Lewis (triceps) is doubtful for his next start.

Lewis was forced out of action on Tuesday due to cramping in his right triceps. He underwent an MRI on Wednesday, which should shed light on the extent of the injury. If this was truly just cramping, it wouldn't be a long-term issue. That the Rangers feel uncomfortable enough with Lewis' health that they sent him in for the MRI should give pause for concern.
Jun 22 - 6:45 PM

Colby Lewis left his start Tuesday night against the Reds with cramping in his right triceps.

Lewis allowed six earned runs in five innings before getting lifted. It was a much different performance than his near-no-hitter last Thursday versus the A's. The right-hander will be reevaluated Wednesday.
