The Texas Rangers activated pitcher Colby Lewis off the 15-day disabled list to start Wednesday's game against the Athletics.
Lewis was placed on the DL on June 26 because of right forearm tendinitis. The right-hander was 6-6 with a 3.51 earned run average in 15 starts before landing on the disabled list.
To make room for Lewis on the active roster, Texas optioned pitcher Martin Perez to Triple-A Round Rock. He was 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA in four games (two starts) with the Rangers.
