Another day, another Rangers pitcher back from the disabled list.

This time it’s Colby Lewis, who returns after missing nearly a month with forearm tightness, and the Rangers sent rookie Martin Perez back to Triple-A to make room on the roster.

Lewis got rocked for eight runs in his final outing before being shut down, but before that he had a 3.00 ERA and 84/12 K/BB ratio in 96 innings. He’ll get the A’s this afternoon in his first start back and tossed eight innings of two-run ball versus Oakland on June 6.

Perez was rushed to the majors despite not having particularly good numbers at Triple-A and the 21-year-old made two starts and two relief appearances while allowing 10 runs in 13 innings.
