Cubs' Jon Lester vows to get back on track, start pitching like ace

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/15) Jon Lester is not exactly off to the start the Cubs envisioned when they signed him to a $155 million contract in the offseason and making him their ace.

Lester could still be working his way back from the dead-arm period he experienced late in spring training, but the veteran lefty isn't trying to make any excuses for his poor start to the season.

“Obviously, I haven’t hit my stride yet, but I don’t want to use anything as a crutch,” Lester said after Monday's start against the Reds, per CSNChicago.com. “Things have to be better. When you have (four) guys going out there and doing their jobs, when you’re the loose end of the chain, that’s never good.

“Back to work tomorrow. A lot of things to work on, a lot of things to improve on. And I’ll get back to being the front end of that chain instead of the back end and letting these guys down. It will be better."

Lester added, “Physically, everything’s fine. Absolutely.”

Cubs P Jon Lester allows six runs against Reds

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Cubs pitcher Jon Lester allowed six earned runs during Monday night's 7-6 extra-inning win over the Reds. 

Lester went six innings and allowed 10 hits in the process. He struck out four batters and walked none. This gives Lester nine earned runs over two games, which puts his ERA at a 7.84. 

Lester's next scheduled start is this Sunday against the Padres. 

Cubs' Jon Lester says he has no issues throwing to first base

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/15) Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester hasn't thrown to first base with a runner on since April 2013. While he says he is comfortable holding the runner at first base, he said the fact he hasn't done it in a while is "blown out of proportion."

“I really didn’t have to do it over the past year or so,” Lester said Wednesday morning, per ESPN. “Coming over here is a little bit different, more runners, part of the game. Something we’ll implement. This was not a big issue until someone brought it up on television. Now I’m sitting answering questions about it.

"Did it [threw over] in spring, did it all spring. The biggest thing right now is working on something different. Anytime you’re working on something different it takes a while.”

The Cardinals stole three bases off Lester during Sunday's season opener. 

“He’s never been a terrific pick-off guy, but it’s never been something that’s been a concern either," general manager Jed Hoyer said. “He’s never been Andy Pettite. Last year he got away from it. It’s something he needs to work on.”

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester struggles in Opening Day loss

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/15) Cubs pitcher Jon Lester was hoping for better returns in his Opening Day start with the new club. Lester allowed three runs on eight hits in just 4 1/3 innings against the Cardinals. 

The Cardinals tagged Lester early and often. Jason Heyward doubled to right and Matt Holliday knocked him in to start the scoring in the first. Lester allowed another run in the second, before getting tagged for three consecutive hits in the fifth, leading to the third run and the hook.

He added six strikeouts and two walks to his totals and has a 6.23 ERA.

"Not much working tonight," Lester said to ESPN.com. "I left too many balls up in the zone."

Cubs batting Jorge Soler second, Jon Lester eighth Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/15) The Cubs announced the starting lineup for Sunday's season opener against the Cardinals, with right fielder Jorge Soler slotted into the second spot of the lineup.

Soler spent most of his brief action in 2014 batting fourth or fifth, but he'll slot in between center fielder Dexter Fowler and first baseman Anthony Rizzo Sunday.

The full Cubs lineup Sunday: CF Fowler, RF Soler, 1B Rizzo, SS Starlin Castro, LF Chris Coghlan, 3B Mike Olt, C David Ross, SP Jon Lester, 2B Tommy La Stella.

Ross draws the start at catcher with former Red Sox teammate Lester on the mound. Manager Joe Maddon will bat the pitcher eighth, Olt and La Stella join Rizzo and Castro in the infield for the team's first game, with Arismendy Alcantara set to come off the bench.
