T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers have pulled Colby Lewis from his minor league rehab assignment due to inflammation in his right triceps muscle. Lewis, who is currently working his way back from flexor tendon surgery, was unable to throw his scheduled bullpen session on Saturday following his first rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.
The good news is that it doesn’t appear to be a significant setback, as Lewis will likely resume throwing this weekend and could return to game action early next week. Still, he probably won’t be a realistic consideration for the rotation until the early part of June.
While the Rangers are waiting on Lewis and Matt Harrison at the moment, their rotation currently ranks fourth in the majors with a 3.34 ERA.
