Colby Lewis last started a big-league game on July 18, 2012, missing the past one-and-a-half seasons following elbow and hip surgeries, but he’s ready to return now.

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that Lewis will rejoin the Rangers’ rotation Saturday against the Astros, essentially taking the spot created when Joe Saunders injured his ankle while filling in for Texas’ other injured starters.

Before being derailed by surgeries Lewis was a very solid mid-rotation starter for the Rangers, tossing 506 innings–including back-to-back 200-inning seasons–with a 3.93 ERA and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings.
