Rangers want to re-sign Colby Lewis


General manager Jon Daniels told Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas that the Rangers would like to re-sign right-hander Colby Lewis and have had preliminary talks with his agent.

Lewis stayed with the Rangers on a minor-league contract this season after hip surgery cost him all of 2013 and was able to log 170 innings in 29 starts, but he posted an ugly 5.18 ERA and allowed opponents to hit .304 with an .840 OPS.

Lewis has been with the Rangers since 2010 after bouncing around previously, so staying in Texas could be appealing for the 35-year-old.
