Rangers, Colby Lewis agree to one-year extension

The Texas Rangers will announce this afternoon that they have signed right-hander Colby Lewis to a one-year extenion through the 2013 season.

Lewis, 33, had season-ending surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow in July. He was 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA in 16 starts.

Lewis signed a two-year deal with a team option for a third year prior to the 2010 season. He emerged as the team's best postseason pitcher in 2010 and 2011, and it was an easy decision for the Rangers to exercise his option for this season.

Lewis won't be ready by opening day next season, as the recovery timetable for his surgery is nine months to a year.
