Diamondbacks' Kyle Lewis: Crushes two homers on rehab
Lewis (undisclosed illness) went 2-for-5 with a walk, two home runs and four RBI for Triple-A Reno on Sunday.
Lewis began a rehab assignment at Reno last week and is 6-for-23 with a double, three home runs and 10 RBI over five games. "He's pushing in the right direction.

Diamondbacks' Kyle Lewis: Homers in rehab game
Lewis (illness) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Tuesday and went 2-for-6 with a home run, three RBI and an additional run.
Lewis served as Reno's designated hitter and made six trips to the plate in his first official game action at any level since April 7. Due to the length of his absence on account of the undisclosed illness, Lewis will almost certainly remain on assignment with Reno through the weekend, and it's possible that his stay on the 10-day injured list could bleed into the upcoming week. Lewis has two minor-league options remaining, and since he doesn't project to hold anything more than a short-side platoon role for the big club, the Diamondbacks could choose to keep him at Reno once he's activated....

Diamondbacks' Kyle Lewis: Plays hero as pinch hitter
Lewis hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning off Alex Vesia to account for all of Arizona's offense in a 2-1 win over the Dodgers on Friday.
The 27-year-old was on the bench to begin the game with Dustin May on the mound for Los Angeles. Lewis delivered in a big way when he got a chance to pinch hit, erasing a one-run deficit with a blast to left field for his first hit as a Diamondback.

Diamondbacks' Kyle Lewis: Strengthens roster bid
Lewis went 2-for-2 with two doubles and three RBI in Friday's spring game against the Rockies.
Lewis leads the Diamondbacks with nine RBI in the Cactus League after getting a late start due to leg issues. He's looking to nail down a fifth outfield spot with Pavin Smith also in the mix. Each have posted results worthy of making the roster, but the decision likely comes down to which one manager Torey Lovullo thinks he'll use the most. From that perspective, Lewis' right-handed bat might give him an edge in an outfield that has three lefty-batters at the top of the depth chart.... See More ... See Less
