Rangers | More on Colby Lewis

Updating a previous item, Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (hip) will have surgery on his hip at the end of this week or early next week, and the recovery time is six to eight weeks before he can resume normal activities. "It's something that I just deal with," Lewis said. "I don't try to make it an issue. I just try to mask the pain as much as I can and for as long as I can and it just comes to the point that I feel like it's affecting my mechanics and not allowing me to compete at the big league level." Lewis went 0-2 with a 7.50 ERA in his rehab starts, and his fastball command and velocity suffered due to inconsistent mechanics.
