The 21-month journey back from elbow and hip surgeries generated a significant amount of attention on Colby Lewis’ return to the big leagues last Monday. After all, he became the first baseball player to comeback from hip resurfacing surgery.

Now, Lewis just wants to become a stabilizing presence in the rotation. The veteran right-hander makes his second start tonight against the White Sox and is looking to build off his 5 1/3 inning season debut in which he allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits.

Lewis, 34, said he was more anxious than nervous during his first start, but has never questioned his ability to still get big leaguers out.

“It was just whether I was going to get the opportunity or not,” Lewis said. “I thank the Rangers for giving me an opportunity. Now I’m back and fit right back into where I was … move on and put us in position to go after another title.”
