Dec. 18 10:49 AM PT11:49 AM MT12:49 PM CT1:49 PM ET13:49 ET18:49 GMT2:49 11:49 AM MST1:49 PM EST2:19 PM VEN22:49 UAE12:49 PM CT-The Rangers and veteran pitcher Colby Lewis have agreed on a $6 million, one-year contract. The deal is pending a physical on the pitcher's surgically repaired right knee. That exam likely won't happen until after the holidays.
Analysis: Lewis set career highs last season with 17 wins and 204 2-3 innings pitched. He has won 27 games over the past two seasons since a hip resurfacing procedure that was unprecedented for a major league pitcher. The 36-year-old right-hander is 71-67 with a 4.81 ERA over 10 major league seasons, eight of those with the Rangers.

Analysis: Lewis needed just 97 pitches, and the 21 straight batters retired to start the game were the most for a Texas pitcher since Yu Darvish got the first 26 before Marwin Gonzalez's two-out single in the ninth for Houston on April 2, 2013. The veteran of 11 major league seasons - and two in Japan to try to get his career back on track - was 0-3 with an 8.62 ERA in his past three starts.
