Career[edit]

Cleveland Indians[edit]

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.[1]

Arizona Diamondbacks[edit]

Lewis signed a minor league contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on November 29, 2011.

Chicago Cubs[edit]

He signed a minor league contract with the Chicago Cubs in December 2012. The Cubs released Lewis in April 2013.
