Angels | Mike Trout cheeses on Colby Lewis

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:01:53 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Mike Trout has hit .394 with four homers in 33 career at-bats against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis, who starts Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Trout has a .360-5-18 line this month, and he's a high-end consideration nearly every day.

Rangers | Colby Lewis avoids serious injury

Sat, 21 May 2016 04:36:31 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Colby Lewis (head) overcame a serious injury during his team's game Friday, May 20, against the Houston Astros. Astros SS Carlos Correa hit a line drive that bounced off Lewis' glove that had been secured to the back of his head. Lewis went on to pitch seven scoreless innings in a 2-1 win.

Fantasy Tip: It was dedication for Lewis, who wanted to stay on the field badly. Lewis (3-0) allowed four hits and struck out six in his first scoreless outing of the year. Lewis is worth starting in all formats, as he appears to have gained solid footing in the Rangers rotation.

Rangers | Colby Lewis quality in no-decision

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:47:09 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis allowed three earned runs, five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Wednesday, May 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has been magnificent lately, posting three straight quality starts while going 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA over his past 20 innings during the three-game span. He has lasted at least six innings in each of his outings this season, posting five quality starts. He isn't quite a must-start in mixed formats because of his low rate of strikeouts, but he is a strong play in AL-only and DFS leagues.

Rangers | Colby Lewis gets rare win vs. Halos

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:49:20 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis allowed two runs and nine hits over seven innings in a win against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, April 29. Lewis entered the game 6-11 with a 6.82 ERA in his career against the Angels. Lewis did not record a strikeout for the first time in 117 regular season and postseason starts, since May 2011.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was a risky fantasy option and DFS play, especially since he was facing a red-hot Hector Santiago. However, the risk paid off for contrarian players.

Rangers | Colby Lewis records quality start

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 14:35:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis recorded a quality start in his first outing of the year Wednesday, April 6, opposite the Seattle Mariners, as he yielded three runs on six hits in six innings, including two home runs. He also struck out four and walked three.

Fantasy Tip: It's about the typical line you'd expect from the 36-year-old, who is capable of racking up a good amount of quality starts, but doesn't really offer much else. Unfortunately for Lewis, he also was not supplied with a win, as closer Steve Tolleson was rocked in the ninth. Even so, Lewis does have some value in the deepest fantasy leagues, and can be useful with the right matchup in AL-only formats.

Rangers | Colby Lewis struggles against M's

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:14:33 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis is scheduled to face the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, April 6. He is 1-4 with a 5.08 ERA in six starts against the Mariners since the start of the 2013 season. He has 31 strikeouts over 39 innings during the span, but also a poor .291 opponent batting average.

Fantasy Tip: After the M's hung 10 runs on Texas in Tuesday's game, they could be dangerous against a pitcher they've fared well against in recent times. Avoid Lewis in DFS in the unfavorable matchup.

Rangers | Colby Lewis shelled by Padres

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 16:28:08 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis allowed 11 hits (two home runs) and nine runs in 4 2/3 innings against the San Diego Padres in spring action Tuesday, March 22.

Fantasy Tip: The 36-year-old Lewis is a finesse artist on the mound, but his homer allowance and inability to keep the ball out of the air will continue to hurt him in Texas. He shouldn't be on the radar of anyone in mixed leagues at this point.

Rangers | Colby Lewis nearing mound work

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 15:38:42 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (knee) is having no issues playing catch and could start throwing off a mound within a week. He underwent offseason knee surgery Friday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, Lewis is nothing more than a streaming and daily games option in A+ matchups. He has a 4.90 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP and a 6.6 K/9 over the past two seasons, after all.

Rangers | Colby Lewis loses weight

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 18:16:25 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis said that he has lost 25 pounds this offseason cycling. His longest ride thus far has been 62 miles.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lewis won 17 games for Texas last season, the 36-year-old right-hander also posted a 4.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. As a result, he shouldn't be considered until the later rounds of drafts for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues.

Rangers | Colby Lewis re-ups with Rangers

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 08:59:42 -0800

Free-agent SP Colby Lewis (Rangers) re-signed with the Texas Rangers Friday, Dec. 18, on a one-year, $6 million deal.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis won 17 games last year with a 4.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. At 36, you kind of know what you're getting. Wins aren't something you can really bank on, so he's a depth fantasy starter right now.
