Colby Lewis placed on waivers 

Surprising, but not shocking...

With Lewis undergoing shoulder surgery, he's unlikely to contribute in 2005 or ever get back to where he was before the injury. And with just one option remaining, a claiming team would likely have to keep him on the 60 day D.L. all season, let him rehab, and then option him in 2006 to let him have the season to try to work himself back into form.

So you are looking at 2007, when he'll be 28, before he's likely to do anything more on the major league level.

Disappointing for Lewis, who had a ton of potential. If he makes it back, it would likely be as a reliever.
