Colby Lewis Might Come Back to Texas Rangers
Lewis didn’t have to use the card to get to spring training, though. He made the drive from his home in Bakersfield, Calif. to the Rangers’ spring complex and avoided the airport security lines that are more of a hassle for him now with a two-pound chunk of metal in his hip. The card, Lewis said, explains the right hip resurfacing procedure he underwent last August.
Lewis cracked a couple more jokes at his own expense Sunday, the day pitchers and catchers reported to camp, but his desire to return to the big leagues is no laughing matter. The hip setback is simply another injury hurdle he has to overcome.
