Colby Lewis is (still) a Texas Ranger

Colby Lewis and the Rangers have agreed on a one year, $6M deal

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

Colby Lewis and the Texas Rangers have agreed to a one year deal worth $6 million, according to multiple reports.

This is not surprising, in that the Rangers and Colby have both expressed a desire for a reunion.  If anything, the $6M number seems a little lower than the $7-9M figure I was anticipating.

I've written enough love letters about Colby that y'all know how I feel about him, and I'm thrilled to have him back at this price in 2016.  Texas can still explore trading a bullpen piece for a young starting pitcher like Archie Bradley, but this puts Texas in a place where they don't have to add any more pitching if the deal isn't right.
