ARLINGTON (105.3 THE FAN/AP) – The Texas Rangers will reportedly re-signed pitcher Colby Lewis to a 1-year, $6 million deal – pending a physical according to Fan sources.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal is pending a physical on the pitcher’s surgically repaired right knee. That exam likely won’t happen until after the holidays.
Lewis set career highs last season with 17 wins and 204 2-3 innings pitched. He has won 27 games over the past two seasons since a hip resurfacing procedure that was unprecedented for a major league pitcher.
The 36-year-old right-hander is 71-67 with a 4.81 ERA over 10 major league seasons, eight of those with the Rangers.
He started his career in Texas, and returned to the Rangers in 2010 after two seasons in Japan.
