According to sources close the Texas Rangers, Colby Lewis will get the nod on Saturday to replace Joe Saunders in the rotation.

Barring any setbacks, Colby Lewis will join the Texas Rangers on Friday back in Arlington and start the game against the Astros on Saturday. He has not pitched in the majors since July of 2012, and we all know the litany of injuries that he has gone through over the past few seasons. Many, including myself, speculated that Colby Lewis would never make it back to the majors, or at least not be an effective major league pitcher again. The latter has yet to be seen, but it appears that Colby Lewis will once again be on the mound in Arlington, Texas wearing a Texas Rangers uniform.

As a Texas Ranger fan and blogger for many years, I am very happy to be writing this post. Colby Lewis brings back fond memories of the Texas Rangers two World Series runs, and although they are not looking like a playoff team in the early going of 2014, the return of Colby Lewis, no matter how unwarranted,  gives me just a smidgen of hope that this team can begin to play a little better. I for one will be pulling for Colby Lewis to have a successful return and a good season with the club, even though I feel that the chances of that happening are very slim. Are you excited to see Colby Lewis back in a Rangers uniform in Arlington?
