Drafted in the 3rd round (77th overall) by the Cleveland Indians in 2004 (signed for $460,000)
Lewis had 16- and 20-strikeout games in consecutive Big 10 Conference starts a year ago on his way to a 9-1, 1.61 record, but then needed Tommy John surgery. The recovery time is usually a year to 12-to-18 months, but Lewis was back in April, 11 months later. He pitched well at first, though he lacked the snap on his trademark curveball and the velocity on his fastball was a tick short, at 87-89 mph. In his first three starts, the 6-foot, 185-pounder had a 4.05 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 13 innings. But he missed consecutive starts in conference play in early May because his arm was a little tender. Lewis pitches across his body, which puts added stress on his arm. As the draft approached, teams were taking a wait-and-see posture on Lewis. He could climb as high as the third round if he returns to action and it's clear his elbow is healthy, though Dr. James Andrews, who performed the operation, has indicated it is.
