Lewis to throw off a mound on Saturday
ARLINGTON -- Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis, on the disabled list with tightness in his right forearm, is scheduled to throw off a mound on Saturday. That bullpen session could show if Lewis will be ready to come off the DL immediately after the All-Star break.

"That's what we had scheduled and what we talked about right before I went on the DL," Lewis said. "I'll see how the arm reacts after this next bullpen and then we'll go from there. It's a day-to-day process."

Lewis threw 25 pitches during a bullpen session on Thursday, and said he had no residual soreness on Friday. He said that's a good sign because he expects some soreness. He has not been on a Major League mound since he pitched four innings in an 11-7 loss to the Rockies on June 23.

"I felt great," Lewis said. "I'll take today off and play catch like I normally would, and I'll throw my full bullpen tomorrow and evaluate it again from there."

The Rangers have not made a decision if Lewis will need at least one rehab start in the Minor Leagues before coming off the disabled list.
