Rangers | Colby Lewis rehabs

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (triceps) allowed two runs and four hits in 2 1/3 innings in a rehab start for Double-A Frisco Monday, May 20, and he threw 33 of his 47 pitches for strikes. "I'm just trying to get reps and get my arm strength back to where you know you can get a big league hitter out," Lewis said. "Right now, in my mind, I don't feel like I can do that. I definitely feel like I can locate. I feel like my velocity's down, and I definitely need to generate more power." He topped out at 87 mph, and his fastball was consistently 84-86 mph.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis clearly needs a couple more rehab outings in order to build his arm strength, so it could be a couple more weeks until he's ready to rejoin the starting rotation. If you have a DL spot open, it's worth stashing him until then in mixed leagues.
