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.
Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.
Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.
The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.
Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.
Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
