Rangers send Lewis back to DL, recall rookie Perez
ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - The Texas Rangers have placed right-hander Colby Lewis on the disabled list for the second time because of forearm tendinitis and recalled rookie left-hander Martin (mar-TEEN’) Perez.
Lewis was first on the DL because of the injury from June 24 to July 17. He made just one start before Monday’s move, allowing three hits and one run in five innings against Oakland on Wednesday. He had a no-decision in Texas’ 4-3 loss.
The Rangers had another pitching injury Monday as Roy Oswalt was scratched from his scheduled start because of back stiffness. Lewis was scheduled to start Tuesday night in the second game of the series against Boston.
In 16 starts, Lewis is 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA. His return to the disabled list is retroactive to Thursday.
Perez made his major league debut for the Rangers earlier this month and was recalled five days after being sent to Triple-A Round Rock. He is 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA in four appearances for Texas, including two starts.
Unless needed in relief Monday night, Perez will start in Lewis‘ place on Tuesday.
