Triceps Soreness May Cost Lewis His Next Start

Stephen Dunn

Colby Lewis's scheduled rehab start on Tuesday is in question

T.R. Sullivan writes that Colby Lewis, who made a rehab start for AAA Round Rock on Thursday, reported triceps soreness today, and as a result, did not throw his scheduled bullpen session.

The Rangers had expected Lewis to make another rehab start for Round Rock on Tuesday, but because of this soreness and skipping his bullpen session, Sullivan says that that start is now in question.

Lewis has been working his way back from flexor tendon surgery, which cost him the bulk of the 2012 season. The Rangers signed him on a one year deal for the 2013 season, and he has been expected to return to the Ranger rotation in late May or early June. If Lewis misses his Tuesday start, his timeline for a return to the majors will probably be early June, at the earliest, rather than the hoped for May return.

Lewis is expected to replace either Nick Tepesch or Justin Grimm in the rotation.
