Designated starting pitcher COLBY LEWIS for assignment.
Lewis missed most of 2004 with a torn rotator cuff. Once one of the crown jewels of the Ranger system, Lewis pitched spectularly on occasion, wretchedly on others. He won't return before midseason 2005, and if the surgery takes some zip off his fastball, he may not have much to offer, as command was never his forte. Not entirely surprising, but nevertheless a depressing development in what once seemed to be a promising future for Lewis.
