Colby Lewis is staying with the Texas Rangers.
The veteran right-hander has agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to major league spring training.
The major-league split is worth $2 million with up to $4 million more in incentives.
Lewis, 34, has been with the team since 2010, but didn’t pitch last season as he suffered several setbacks in trying to get back from flexor tendon surgery.
Lewis, drafted by the Rangers in 1999, has spent six of his eight big-league seasons with the team. He was a key piece in the rotation during the Rangers’ two World Series runs in 2010 and 2011.
