Colby Lewis SP TEX 4 Months

Lewis gave up four runs on nine hits with a walk and five strikeouts Monday in a loss to the Royals.

Lewis has allowed four or more runs in five straight outings and while he's done a good job eating innings for the Rangers, the results have been poor. The league is hitting .314 with 20 home runs off the right-hander this season. It's unclear when Lewis will pitch next with Derek Holland re-joining the rotation Tuesday from the disabled list.

Lewis struck out seven and walked one while giving up four runs on seven hits in a complete game victory over Seattle on Wednesday.

The Rangers put 10 runs on Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez, enabling Lewis to pitch with a huge lead Wednesday afternoon. The elder statesman in the injury ravaged Texas rotation, Lewis is currently serving as the team's ace with Yu Darvish (elbow) unlikely to return before the end of the season. He'll line up for two starts next week, first against the Royals in Kansas City on Monday before a second turn Saturday at home against Seattle.

Lewis struck out a pair and allowed four runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Friday night.

Yordano Ventura was very sharp for the Royals on Friday night, erasing Lewis' chances for the victory in a game where he failed to turn in a quality start. The Rangers will continue to give the ball to Lewis every fifth day as they play out the string, while his next outing is scheduled for Wednesday against the Mariners at Safeco Field.

Lewis fanned 10, but allowed five runs on 10 hits over six innings against the Angels on Saturday night in a losing effort.

The five runs were the most that Lewis has allowed in a start since coughed up 11 against the Halos in his final start before the All-Star break on July 10. Lewis is lined up to face the Royals on Friday in Arlington for his next scheduled start.

Lewis was hurt by subpar defense Monday, allowing five runs�two earned�in five innings Monday.

Lewis has nobody to blame but himself, committing an error and walking four in the losing effort. The veteran had been coming off three strong starts before Monday. Lewis sees the Angels this weekend.

Lewis pitched a complete-game shutout against the White Sox on Tuesday, giving up just six hits and one walk, while striking out seven batters to improve to 8-8 on the year.

In a season that has gone terribly wrong, it was nice to see Lewis pitch his best game of the year Tuesday. Lewis still has an ERA (5.50) well north of five and an unsightly 1.65 WHIP, although to his credit, he has now tossed three-straight quality starts. His next start is scheduled for Monday at home against Tampa Bay.

Colby Lewis yielded two runs in seven innings Wednesday in a win over the Yankees.

It looked like this would be a high-scoring game after Brett Gardner led off the first with a homer and the Rangers came through with three in the bottom of the inning against Hiroki Kuroda, but it ended up being a 3-2 Rangers win. Lewis allowed just four hits, two of them being solo shots (the other belonged to Jacoby Ellsbury). It was Lewis's first win since July 5, but he has pitched decently in three straight starts after giving up 13 runs in his final outing before the break. He probably still doesn't have much trade value right now should the Rangers decide to cash him in.

Colby Lewis fell to 6-7 after allowing two runs over five innings Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Both runs scored in the fourth inning. Lewis gave up eight hits and three walks (one of them intentional), so needed 106 pitches just to get out of the fifth inning. Still, he'll take it after he was pounded for 11 runs over just 2 1/3 innings in his final start before the All-Star break. Lewis will bring an ugly 6.37 ERA into a start against the Yankees next week at Yankee Stadium. He remains a poor bet in fantasy leagues.

Colby Lewis was demolished by the Angels' lineup on Thursday, allowing 13 runs (11 earned) in 2 1/3 innings, resulting in a loss.

Lewis entered the start with a 5.51 ERA, which was ugly enough, but it took a serious beating on Thursday. The right-hander surrendered 13 hits and struck out only one, but at least he didn't issue a walk. Lewis, tattered, heads into the All-Star break with a 6.54 ERA, a 1.82 WHIP, and a 73/26 K/BB ratio.

Colby Lewis held the Mets to three runs -- two earned -- over seven innings Saturday in a Rangers win.

Lewis wasn't exactly steady, but he didn't walk a batter and worked well around eight New York hits. The right-hander struck out seven. He'll take a 6-5 record, 5.51 ERA, and 1.77 WHIP into his next scheduled outing at home against the Angels. The Rangers have won just three out of their last 17 games.
