Rangers re-sign Colby Lewis for $4 million

8 Comments

Colby Lewis is staying with the Rangers, agreeing to a one-year, $4 million deal after the two sides couldn’t agree to terms in time for him to avoid free agency.

Lewis bounced back from an injury wrecked 2013 season to start 29 games and throw 170 innings for the Rangers this year, but he wasn’t effective with a 5.18 ERA, AL-leading 14 losses, and a .304 opponents’ batting average.

Before the injuries Lewis was a solid middle-of-the-rotation starter from 2010-2012, so the Rangers are betting on a return to that at age 35.
