Colby Lewis hasn’t thrown a pitch in the majors since July 18, 2012 due to elbow and hip surgeries, but that hasn’t stopped the Rangers from attempting to bring him back.

According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels confirmed today that the club made an offer to Lewis and are currently awaiting a response. Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram speculates that a minor league deal was offered, so he’ll presumably see if he can find a guaranteed major league deal first.
