Texas Rangers, Colby Lewis on verge of 2016 deal


Colby Lewis and the Texas Rangers have reached agreement on a one-year contract for 2016 that will pay the veteran right-hander $6 million if he and his repaired right knee can pass a physical exam.

The sides came together late Thursday, according to two sources, to extend a relationship between player and team that was first hatched in the 1999 draft but was rekindled in 2010 as Lewis was lured back from Japan….

Lewis won 17 games over 33 starts and 204 2/3 innings, and did so while pitching most of the season with torn meniscus in his right knee. He underwent surgery in October and was in Texas on Dec. 2 for a checkup team physician Dr. Keith Meister.
