ARLINGTON, Texas – The Texas Rangers have placed right-hander Colby Lewis on the disabled list for the second time because of forearm tendinitis and recalled rookie left-hander Martin (mar-TEEN') Perez.
Lewis was first on the DL because of the injury from June 24 to July 17. He made just one start before Monday's move, allowing three hits and one run in five innings against Oakland on Wednesday. He had a no-decision in Texas' 4-3 loss.
In 16 starts, Lewis is 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA. His return to the disabled list is retroactive to Thursday.
Perez made his major league debut for the Rangers earlier this month and was recalled five days after being sent to Triple-A Round Rock. He is 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA in four appearances for Texas, including two starts.
