The Texas Rangers with be without 36-year old righty starting pitcher Colby Lewis for at least the next two months due to a strained lat muscle. Lewis has pitched in 15 games (all starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 6-1 with a 3.21 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He has given up only 81 hits (13 homers) and 19 walks while whiffing 61 batters in his first 98 innings pitched so far this year. This is a huge blow to the Rangers, as Lewis has been pitching the best of his Major League career in 2016.
UPDATE: (6/26/2016) – The Texas Rangers placed Colby Lewis off the D.L. and they activated 28-year old righty starting pitcher A.J. Griffin off the D.L. last night to replace him in the starting rotation. Griffin has pitched in 7 games (all starts) so far this year for the Rangers and he is 3-0 with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.
