Rangers Interested In Colby Lewis

The Texas Rangers are eyeing right-hander Colby Lewis, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. Lewis pitched in the majors most recently in 2007 for the Oakland A's, and has spent the last two years in Japan.

Originally selected by the Rangers in the supplemental round of the 1999 draft, Lewis never enjoyed much success in the big leagues, compiling a 6.71 ERA in 72 career appearances (34 starts). The 30-year-old has excelled for the Hiroshima Carp though, posting a sub-3.00 ERA in each of his two seasons as a starter in Japan.

Although acquiring an impact bat may be the Rangers' main priority right now, they are still looking to add pitching depth. Lewis is hoping to return to the United States for the 2010 season, and the righty would definitely qualify as an inexpensive option.
