Rangers working on Colby Lewis deal

Nothing is finalized but the Rangers are working on a new contract for right-handed starter Colby Lewis. Team officials are hopeful they will know something soon regarding Lewis, who tied for the team lead in victories with 10 after returning from hip and elbow surgeries. The Rangers will have three free agents to deal with and Lewis is at the top of the list. He signed a one-year $2 million minor league deal last season.

You can debate whether or not Choo deserved the contract he received just based on his injury plagued season.
