Colby Lewis pulled from rehab assignment due to triceps inflammation

T.R. Sullivan of 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.

Janet Paskin and Scott Soshnick of Bloomberg are reporting that the Yankees and Red Sox are near an agreement to play a two-game series in London in 2019. The games would be played at London Stadium, which hosted the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Major League Baseball has had games played internationally in Japan, Australia, and Mexico. It has yet to do so in Europe. The NFL will have three games played in London this year, with the Seahawks and Raiders matching up at Tottenham Stadium on October 14, the Eagles and Jaguars playing at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28, and the Titans and Chargers doing battle at Wembley Stadium on October 21 or 28. Those dates will likely be determined next month.
