The hits just keep on coming for fans of the Texas Rangers as starting pitcher Colby Lewis is headed back to the 15-day disabled list.

Lewis was placed on the DL by the club prior to Monday’s game with the Boston Red Sox and 21-year-old Martin Perez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to start in Lewis’ stead on Tuesday.

Lewis had just come off the disabled list Wednesday to make a start against Oakland, but is headed back to the shelf with the same injury that sidelined him for nearly a month.

“You can’t push an arm issue. A lot of other things you can push through, but an arm issue, you don’t want to mess with,” Lewis said Sunday. “I have a lot of years left on the mound. I don’t want to push it and hurt my arm or my career. If it’s another two weeks or a month, that’s what needs to happen.”

In 16 starts, Lewis is 6-6 with a 3.43 ERA. His return to the disabled list is retroactive to Thursday.

Perez made his major league debut for the Rangers earlier this month and was recalled five days after being sent to Triple-A Round Rock. He is 1-1 with a 5.54 ERA in four appearances for Texas, including two starts.
