Rangers pick up '12 club option on RHP Colby Lewis

The two-time American League champion Texas Rangers have made their first offseason move, picking up the 2012 club option for right-hander Colby Lewis.

Lewis will get $3.25 million next season, which will be his third back with the Rangers since returning from Japan.

The move was made Monday, three days after the Rangers ended their second consecutive season with a loss in the World Series.

Lewis was 14-10 with a 4.40 ERA in the regular season and 1-1 with a 3.04 ERA in the postseason.

Later Monday, Texas exercised a $1 million option on right-handed reliever Yoshinori Tateyama, who was 2-0 with a 4.50 ERA in 39 appearances this season.
