Colby Lewis was on the verge of rejoining the Rangers after a year-long recovery from elbow surgery, but now he needs hip surgery and will miss the remainder of the season.
General manager Jon Daniels announced that Lewis will have surgery to remove bone spurs from his right hip and won’t be able to resume throwing for at least two months. According to Daniels the Rangers “felt he was putting his arm at risk if he pushed any further.”
By picking up Matt Garza from the Cubs and also welcoming back Alexi Ogando from the disabled list the Rangers aren’t lacking in rotation options even after losing Lewis, who re-signed on a one-year, $2 million deal with incentives. He’ll likely be looking for another incentive-heavy contract this offseason.
