Lewis' start pushed but not for health reasons

ANAHEIM -- Rangers manager Ron Washington insisted that right-hander Colby Lewis is healthy and that was not the reason for his scheduled start against the Angels on Wednesday being pushed back two days to Friday against the White Sox.

He also said that pushing Lewis back two days means he'll make one fewer start leading up to the All-Star break, which begins on July 12.

"There's nothing wrong with him health-wise or physically," Washington said. "None of that has anything do with it. We're just trying to monitor our pitchers."
