SURPRISE, Arizona (AP) -- Colby Lewis has been down this road before. He has come back from rotator cuff and reconstructive elbow surgeries.
This time, he's trying to make the Texas Rangers after last year's operation on his right hip.
Lewis agreed to a minor league deal last month that included an invitation to Texas' big league camp. He threw a batting practice session on Monday.
Lewis, who was the Rangers' opening-day starter in 2012, has not pitched in a game since he made a five-inning rehab outing in the minors on Aug. 3. He then had hip resurfacing surgery, which is short of a full hip replacement.
