Texas Rangers’ re-sign Colby Lewis to a Minor League contract


According to the Dallas Morning News, the Texas Rangers and 34 year old right handed starting pitcher Colby Lewis have reached an agreement on a Minor League contract.

The deal does include an invitation to Spring Training so he still has a shot at cracking the Opening Day roster. He has been out of action since 2012 after suffering multiple arm injuries and having hip surgery. So it’s a surprise that the Texas Rangers are still wanting to keep him on board.

It always has to feel good coming off all those injuries and having the team you played for still having some faith in you and your abilities. It’ll be a tough up hill battle for Lewis and he may not do it right away, but you can’t always count someone out.

This is why they have comeback player of the year awards.

Anyways, the Rangers made a huge trade last week (as we all know) when they traded for Prince Fielder. With Fielder on the team, it gives Lewis and the Rangers a better chance of reaching the World Series once again.

That’s if Prince and his bat show up in the post-season.
