Texas Rangers: Colby Lewis to miss two months; Rangers place Derek Holland on disabled list | SportsDay

Yup, that’s a bad day.

The Rangers’ depth in starting pitching will be put to the test after the loss of two front-line pitchers on Wednesday.
Right-hander Colby Lewis, a lead figure on the club, will not throw for four weeks because of a strained lat muscle in the right shoulder and probably will land on the 60-day disabled list. Left-hander Derek Holland went on the 15-day disabled list because of shoulder inflammation.

With right-hander Yu Darvish already on the disabled list, the Rangers are down to two front-line starters: left-handers Cole Hamels, who worked six strong innings in a 6-4 win against Cincinnati on Wednesday, and Martin Perez.
