FRISCO, Texas At least Colby Lewis felt fine physically after making his rehab start for Frisco Monday.
As for how Lewis felt he pitched, well that wasn't so good.
"I definitely need more reps," said Lewis. "I definitely need to go out there and get my arm strength up. Eighty five or 86 isn't going to cut it, not for me anyways. I definitely need to go out there and get more reps. Hopefully in the next couple of starts I can generate some more arm strength and get my velocity back where it needs to be."
Lewis allowed two runs on four hits and pitched 2 13 innings for the Double-A Roughriders.
Throwing mainly fastballs that normally were around 85 mph, Lewis tallied 47 pitches (33 for strikes). He struck out three and didn't walk a batter. He was slated to throw three innings or around 45 pitches. He was visited by the trainer in the third inning but said that was just to check on Lewis's body.
