Texas Rangers right-hander Colby Lewis will have surgery to remove bone spurs from his right hip, ending his chances of pitching this season.

Lewis, who hasn't pitched since 2012, says he has been dealing with hip pain during his comeback from surgery last year to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right elbow.

The repaired elbow has felt good, but Lewis said Tuesday the hip problem has progressed to affecting his mechanics.

Lewis, the team's most successful postseason pitcher, had been pitching in rehabilitation games. He had been expected to possibly be in the Rangers rotation in the next couple of weeks. After his elbow surgery last year, the Rangers gave him a $2-million, one-year deal for 2013.

Etc.

The Cincinnati Reds plan to activate right-handed reliever Jonathan Broxton off the disabled list before the final game of their series against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday. Broxton has been sidelined since June 15 by a sore right elbow. He was the team's primary setup man before he got hurt. Manager Dusty Baker also expects catcher Ryan Hanigan and left fielder Ryan Ludwick to come off the disabled list by the end of the week.

The New York Mets have placed closer Bobby Parnell on the 15-day disabled list because of a herniated disc in his neck and have recalled infielder Wilmer Flores from triple-A Las Vegas. ... Kansas City Royals left-hander Danny Duffy will be recalled to start Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Twins after recovering from Tommy John surgery last summer.

Detroit Tigers Manager Jim Leyland finally commented on shortstop Jhonny Peralta's 50-game suspension, and in true Leyland fashion, his remarks were to the point. "I will say we will miss Jhonny Peralta and that's the end of it," Leyland said before Detroit's game against the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night. "I'm not going to discuss it any further. I do owe you that comment, I think."
