Share/Save/Bookmark

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Rangers have designated right-hander Daniel McCutchen for assignment to make room on their roster for Colby Lewis, who will make his first major league start in 21 months.

McCutchen was cut before the series opener against Seattle on Monday night, when Lewis was set for his first start for Texas since July 18, 2012.

Texas selected Lewis' contract from Triple-A Round Rock. He had gone to major league spring training this year as a non-roster invitee.

Lewis has had elbow surgery and a unique hip procedure for a pitcher since last pitching the majors.

McCutchen allowed three runs in 2 1-3 innings in his only appearances for the Rangers this season. Texas has 10 days to trade or release him or to send him outright to the minor leagues.
