Colby Lewis has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, which is a big step in the Rangers right-hander’s recovery from July surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon.

Lewis, who re-signed with the Rangers on a one-year, $2 million deal, is scheduled to throw around 45 pitches or three innings at Triple-A tonight.

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com writes that Lewis will probably make at least four rehab starts, building up his arm strength and pitch count while the 30-day clock ticks on his assignment. Lewis’ initial timetable was sometime around June, so he’s right on track.

    Glad to see Lewis recovering nicely. Good veteran presence on the team.
