    Colby Lewis, who underwent season-ending elbow surgery in late July, has been cleared to begin throwing from flat ground after being examined by team doctors over the weekend. Lewis would have been a free agent this offseason, but instead signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Rangers in September that includes $4 million in…

    Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis provided an update on his recovery from July elbow surgery, telling Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas that he’s scheduled to begin a throwing program in January and hopes to rejoin the Rangers’ rotation before the All-Star break. “I feel great,” Lewis said. “I don’t feel any pain and I have my…

  3. The Top 50 Free Agents of 2013

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Earlier this fall I counted down the top 111 free agents of this offseason. Since then, several players have had their options picked up or contracts extended, taking them out of play.  With the free agent signing period beginning tonight, it’s a good time to update that list and count them down once again. Up first,…

    Alexi Ogando has moved back and forth from the bullpen to the rotation for Texas during the past two seasons, making 30 starts and 59 relief appearances while thriving in both roles, and now T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers “are determined” to use him as a starter in 2013. Ogando has a…

  5. Alexi Ogando wants starting rotation spot in 2013

    Oct 7, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    alexi ogando getty

    Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando spent nearly the entire 2012 campaign in the bullpen and had a great deal of success, finishing with a 3.27 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 66/17 K/BB ratio in 66 innings. But he is not satisfied with that setup role. According to beat writer Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, Ogando…

  6. The Rangers signed Colby Lewis to a contract extension

    Sep 17, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    colby lewis ap

    A few minutes ago the Texas Rangers announced that they signed Colby Lewis to a one-year extension. It has a $2 million base salary with incentives that could make it up to $6 million.  He made $3.25 million in 2012. Sounds like a win-win, inasmuch as Lewis was facing free agency apocalypse, what with his…

  7. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  8. The Rangers are preparing to move Alexi Ogando back into the rotation

    Jul 28, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando Reuters

    We heard earlier this week that the Rangers were considering moving Alexi Ogando back in the starting rotation. Well, they got the ball rolling in last night’s loss to the White Sox. Last night’s starter, Yu Darvish, was knocked out of the ballgame after 6 1/3 innings, so Ogando ended up pitching the final 2…

  9. Rangers consider moving Alexi Ogando back into rotation

    Jul 24, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando‘s versatility has basically allowed the Rangers to move him back and forth from the rotation to the bullpen based on whichever spot has been wrecked more by injuries. He’s thrived in both roles and with Colby Lewis out for the season following Tommy John elbow surgery, Neftali Feliz on the disabled list with…

  10. Colby Lewis to have season-ending surgery on elbow

    Jul 23, 2012, 7:56 PM EDT

    colby lewis reuters

    UPDATE: According to Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest, the Rangers have confirmed that Lewis will undergo surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow. This is not the ulnar collateral ligament, which is associated with Tommy John surgery. Either way, he’s done for 2012. 7:47 PM: Passan is now reporting that…

  11. Rangers activate Colby Lewis from DL, send Martin Perez back to minors

    Jul 18, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    colby lewis reuters

    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,…

  12. Alexi Ogando returns from disabled list as a reliever

    Jul 16, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando‘s first 27 appearances of the season came as a reliever and then he moved into the Rangers’ injury wrecked rotation on June 10, throwing three innings before being shut down with a strained groin. Six weeks later he’s back from the disabled list and the Rangers’ starting pitching has gotten healthier during that…

  13. Neftali Feliz works as a starter while rehabbing elbow injury

    Jul 6, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Neftali Feliz

    Back when Neftali Feliz went on the disabled list with an elbow injury in mid-May the Rangers had so much rotation depth that there was speculation he’d return as a reliever. Since then Feliz has been joined on the DL by Colby Lewis, Derek Holland, and Alexi Ogando–and Roy Oswalt has been knocked around–so not…

  14. Colby Lewis is aiming to return right after the All-Star break

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    colby lewis ap

    More good news for the MLB-leading Rangers. According to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, starter Colby Lewis made it through a game of catch Saturday without incident and is on track to return to the Texas rotation immediately (or almost immediately) after the All-Star break. Lewis has been on the disabled list since…

  15. Rangers’ rotation takes another hit with Colby Lewis on DL

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:48 PM EDT

    colby lewis reuters

    Colby Lewis has joined Neftali Feliz, Derek Holland, and Alexi Ogando as Rangers starters (or fill-in starters) on the disabled list, as the team put him on the shelf with a strained forearm. That move makes room on the roster for top prospect Martin Perez’s promotion from Triple-A, but instead of putting the 21-year-old Perez…

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  17. Rangers considered heavy favorites to sign Roy Oswalt

    Roy Oswalt is reportedly close to choosing his new team and returning to the mound, and according to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com the Rangers are heavy favorites to sign the 34-year-old right-hander. In fact, an unnamed “baseball official” told Crasnick that he “would be shocked” if Oswalt doesn’t end up in Texas. Along with the…

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

    Nationals 4, Pirates 2: Stephen Strasburg struck out 13 in six innings. The only thing more dominating than he was the Hulk when I went to go see “The Avengers” last night. Upshot: damn fine movie. But the “Dark Night Rises” trailer before it may have been even better. Yes, I realize that I may…

  20. Colby Lewis gives up five homers, strikes out career-best 12

    May 10, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Colby Lewis

    It was certainly a case of feast or famine for the Orioles in the first game of Thursday’s doubleheader. Rangers starter Colby Lewis gave up three straight homers to begin the bottom of the first, retired the next 18 hitters he faced and then surrendered two more homers in the seventh to leave down 6-0…

  21. Orioles open game with three straight homers

    May 10, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Ryan Flaherty, Colby Lewis

    Orioles left fielder Ryan Flaherty opened the bottom of the first inning of Thursday’s doubleheader against the Rangers with his first major league homer. And it was reason to celebrate. J.J. Hardy and Nick Markakis immediately followed with homers of support, making the Orioles the first team in five years to start a game with…

  22. Adam Dunn’s homer ties a major league record

    Apr 6, 2012, 6:24 PM EDT

    Adam Dunn going deep

    On MLB’s fourth Opening Day this year, Adam Dunn tied an Opening Day record with his eighth career Opening Day homer Friday against the Rangers. Because it’s still Opening Day somewhere. Dunn’s blast off Colby Lewis tied him with Frank Robinson and Ken Griffey Jr. for the most Opening Day homers. Dunn’s actually gone deep…

  23. Ian Kinsler didn’t show any disappointment on Opening Day

    Apr 6, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    This morning we heard that Ian Kinsler was disappointed that he couldn’t get a deal worked out with the Rangers before the season started.  If he’s disappointed, however, it didn’t carry over to his game: Kinsler had a leadoff double, scored on a Josh Hamilton sac fly and later hit a solo homer, leading the…

    As noted by Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, right-hander Yu Darvish is scheduled to make his first MLB start on April 9 at home against the Mariners.
