ARLINGTON, Texas — Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with tendinitis in his right forearm. He is the third starter from the opening-day rotation out of the lineup, along with a reliever and another pitcher hurt in his first start of the season after moving from the bullpen.
"It's just something that every club deals with, we just waited a little while longer before we dealt with it," general manager Jon Daniels said. "I feel good that all of these guys are in relatively good spots and should be able to bounce back."
Pitchers Derek Holland (shoulder fatigue), Neftali Feliz (right elbow inflammation) and Alexi Ogando (right groin strain) are also on the DL.
Moyer signs minor-league
deal with Toronto
BOSTON — Jamie Moyer may not be finished quite yet.
The Toronto Blue Jays have signed the 49-year-old left-hander to a minor-league deal, giving the oldest pitcher to win a game in the big leagues another shot.
The Blue Jays say Moyer, the longtime Mariner, will make two starts for Class AAA Las Vegas, then Toronto will decide whether to bring him back to the majors.
• Cleveland general manager Chris Antonetti said he doesn't think the pitcher formerly known as Fausto Carmona will face the same eight-week suspension that Miami reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo received for age and identity fraud when he was allowed to return to the United States. Roberto Hernandez has been on the restricted list since last winter when he was arrested and later cleared in the Dominican Republic for false identity charges.
