Stock Report: Martin Perez up; Josh Hamilton down
Here's our weekly stock report, where we look at who's trending up and who's trending down over the past week.
Craig Gentry: He is 7-for-19 in the past week with two RBIs and a big suicide squeeze in Wednesday's win over the Red Sox. Gentry continues to be a nice spark for an offense that is still looking to hit its stride.
Colby Lewis: This is certainly no fault of his own, but the club's best postseason pitcher the past two seasons is out for the year with a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. Count me among those that hopes -- and expects -- Lewis to rehab and come back pitch well for someone (whether that's Texas or another team) in the future. His stock was way up before the injury and he was in line for a nice contract. It's a tough break for a warrior and a nice guy.
