According to ESPN, if the 34-year-old Lewis makes the big league club, he will earn $2 million in base salary and could earn up to another $4 million in incentives.

Lewis hasn’t played for Texas since the middle of the 2012 season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn flexor in his elbow and hip surgery.

The Rangers drafted Lewis with the 38th overall pick in the 1999 amateur draft. In eight seasons with Texas, Detroit and Oakland, he has compiled a record of 44-44 with a 4.76 ERA. He has struck out 613 batters in 723 2-3 innings of work.
