Career

Amateur

Lewis attended Vanderbilt University, and in 2003 and 2004 he played collegiate summer baseball with the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod Baseball League. [1]

Cleveland Indians

Jensen was selected 102nd overall at the 2005 MLB Draft. After spending the first half of the 2007 season with Cleveland's minor league teams, the Akron Aeros and Buffalo Bisons, Lewis was called up to the Indians on July 13, 2007, and made his Major League Baseball debut against the Chicago White Sox three days later. Lewis would earn his first big league victory throwing three scoreless innings of relief against the Detroit Tigers on September 18. Lewis served as the Indians closer in August and September 2008, converting all 13 of his save opportunities.

On July 20, 2010, Lewis was designated for assignment to make room for Asdrúbal Cabrera on the active roster. On July 21, Lewis was placed back on the 40-man roster and optioned to the Triple-A Columbus Clippers.

After a difficult 2011 spring training in which he allowed 10 runs on 13 hits in 5 2/3 innings, Lewis was outrighted to Columbus on March 22. He was released on June 24, after recording a 5.14 ERA in 28 innings while with Columbus. [2]

Lewis signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on November 29, 2011 and spent the 2012 season with the Reno Aces, the Diamondbacks' AAA affiliate. He signed a minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs in December 2012. The Cubs released Lewis in April 2013 after five games with the AAA Iowa Cubs, ending his professional career.

Sports analyst

In 2015 Lewis became the pregame/postgame analyst for Cleveland Indians games on SportsTime Ohio, [3] and has three Lower Great Lakes Emmy Awards to his credit as part of the Indians Live pregame/postgame show. [4] [5]
