ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas right-hander Colby Lewis believes his long rehab road back to the Rangers could be coming to an end soon. Lewis pitched five innings for Double-A Frisco Sunday and is slated to make another rehab start Saturday for the Roughriders, with 90 pitches his goal. If there are no issues with that, Lewis thinks he could be ready to pitch in the majors again. "I think we're going to have one more at 90 pitches and after that we're probably good," Lewis said. "I felt like velocity was back up and I was definitely locating my fastball a lot better and my slider was sharp. My misses were definitely fewer." Lewis has made three starts for Frisco during this rehab stint. Sunday he allowed three earned runs in five innings, struck out five and didn't walk a batter. He talked with Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux between starts and made a mechanical adjustment. His fastball Sunday touched 91 mph, which hadn't happened in earlier rehab starts. Lewis, who had flexor tendon surgery last year, knows the final decision about when he pitches for the Rangers isn't up to him. But he also knows he's feeling good. "It will be up to them after that," Lewis said. Lewis isn't the only starter on the rehab road. Matt Harrison, who made two starts this year before undergoing a pair of back surgeries, will pitch two innings for Frisco Wednesday.
