Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux said that Colby Lewis (elbow) is ahead of schedule and on target for a June 1 return.

Previous reports had indicated that the club wasn't expecting Lewis back until late June or July. Of course, the right-hander hasn't even begun throwing off a mound yet (he could do so the first week of March), so a lot can happen between now and June. Lewis is recovering from surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow.
