Colby Lewis Back on the DL

Tendinitis resurfaces in Lewis' right forearm



    The Texas Rangers have placed Colby Lewis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Thursday.

    Lewis again has tendinitis in his right forearm.  He was on the DL from June 24-July 17 with the same injury.  He made only one start since being activated from the DL and took a no decision in a 4-3 loss to Oakland.

    He is 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA this season in 16 games.

    To take his place on the active roster, the Rangers recalled LHP Martin Perez.

    Here is more from the Rangers on Perez:

    Perez made his major league debut with Texas this season during Lewis’ first disabled list stint, going 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA (8 ER/13.0 IP) in 4 games/2 starts.  He made one relief appearance with Round Rock after being optioned on Wednesday, allowing one run in 2.0 innings on Friday vs. Omaha (40 pitches).  Overall at the Triple-A level this season, Perez has gone 5-5 with a 4.59 ERA (44 ER/86.1 IP) in 16 games/15 starts.
