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 range of motion.”

Instead of hitting the open market as a free agent Lewis agreed to a one-year deal with the Rangers that includes $2 million in guaranteed money and another $4 million in potential incentives.
