Colby Lewis‘ rehab from surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon has hit a momentary snag.

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that Lewis was unable to throw his scheduled bullpen session today due to right triceps soreness and could be scratched from his next rehab start on Tuesday.

Lewis, who had flexor tendon surgery last July, allowed four runs on three hits and two walks over two innings during his first start with Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday. The Rangers were aiming for him to make around four rehab starts before joining the rotation in late May or early June, so his timeline could be pushed back if the triceps issue lingers.

Lewis, 33, posted a 3.93 ERA over 80 starts with the Rangers from 2010-2012. He re-signed with the club last September on a one-year, $2 million deal and could make an additional $4 million with incentives.

    The Rangers are going to be ok without Colby Lewis. Smart of the Rangers to re-sign Colby to a 1 year deal. Even if they dont find anyone in trades or free agency to replace him, they’ll still be ok and this is coming from a die hard Angels fan. Honestly lets get real: yes, the rangers let go of Young, Hamilton and Napoli BUT if you really think about it look who they used to replace them. Pierzynski, Berkman and Leonys Martín. Pierzynski who has been as durable as some catchers replaced Napoli, Berkman for Young as far as veteran leadership and Martín replaces Hamilton as far as your future premier player. All 3 of those players costed little to nothing where as if they did re-sign those 3 players they may have been short on money to use later. But as we all know obviously by watching them that they are still a team to watch out for and one of the top teams in the major league.
