Arlington, TX (Sports Network) - Texas Rangers pitcher Colby Lewis is scheduled to have rotator cuff surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
Lewis, who will have two tears in his right shoulder repaired, stated Tuesday that it will be at least four to five months before he can start throwing again.
Dr. John Conway of Fort Worth will perform the surgery.
Lewis, 24, started the season in the Rangers rotation, but was placed on the 15-day disabled list with stiffness in his shoulder back on April 20. He was 1-1 with a 4.11 earned run average in three starts for the Rangers this season.
The righthander posted a 10-9 mark with a 7.30 ERA in 26 starts for the Rangers back in 2003.
