Colby Lewis following The Undertaker's lead

The Dallas Morning News—February 14, 2014

If gritty right-hander Colby Lewis returns to the Texas Rangers’ rotation after undergoing hip-resurfacing surgery last year, he will be the first major-leaguer to accomplish the feat.

He will not be the first prime-time performer to do it.

“The Undertaker,” of WWE fame, had the same surgery in 2012 at age 46 and has returned to the ring in an albeit limited role. Dr. Edwin Su performed each operation, at Hospital for Special Surgery.

Lewis goes into spring training with no limitations on his throwing work, but the Rangers will hold him back in fielding drills and running. Lewis has not pitched in a major-league game since July 18, 2012.

“It’s been a remarkable story to this point,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said of Lewis. “Colby has been through some battles in his carer, and he’s come out better for it each time.”
