Jon Lester contract talks put off until after the season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/14) The Red Sox and pitcher Jon Lester won't have further discussions about a contract extension until after the season, reports the Boston Herald. Team owner John Henry sent this email to the paper:

"I’m not going to discuss Jon’s situation out of respect for both Jon and (general manager) Ben (Cherington) other than to say that both sides have put further discussion off until after the season. It’s clear that both Jon and our organization would like to see Jon back next year if possible."

Lester, whose deal expires at season's end, said earlier he didn't want his contract talks to become a distraction for the team. He's 10-7 with a 2.50 ERA in 20 starts.

Jon Lester too much for slumping Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/14) Jon Lester showed his all-star form Sunday as the Red Sox completed a sweep of Kansas City. He gave up just four hits and two walks while fanning eight in eight innings to breeze to his 10th victory of the season.

Lester retired eight in a row at one point and has surrendered just one run in his last 31 innings pitched. He is set to start again Friday in Tampa Bay against fellow ace David Price.

Jon Lester surrenders two runs Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/15/14) Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester allowed two runs during the All-Star Game Tuesday.

After getting Giancarlo Stanton to pop out for the first out of the inning, Lester proceeded to allow three straight hits. Aramis Ramirez singled, to start things off, and was driven in by a Chase Utley double. Utley was then driven in on a Jonathan Lucroy double. Lester then incuded a popout and a fly out to get out of the inning. 

Jon Lester 'thrown off' by in-season contract talks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/14/14) Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester said he was "thrown off" by the team's attempt to rekindle extension talks during the season, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

"Since Day One I was told [not negotiating in season] was the policy," Lester said. "The way I think is pretty black and white. They tell me one thing, and we're hell-bent on that [so to change gears] throws me off."

The Red Sox were reportedly ready to bump the initial offer of four years and $70 million to five years and around $100 million, according to the report, though an offer wasn't officially presented to Lester.

"We never received a [new] offer," he said. "The conversation had picked up. But there never was an offer thrown out there."

Lester, who is scheduled to become a free agent after this season, has delivered excellent numbers in the face of uncertainty, going 9-7 with a 2.65 ERA and 134:29 K:BB ratio in 129 innings.

Red Sox announce rotation plans for start of second half
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/14) The Red Sox announced Clay Buchholz will be on the mound for the team's second-half opener Friday vs. Kansas City. He will be followed in the three-game series by Rubby De La Rosa and Jon Lester.

John Lackey will then open a series at Toronto July 21. He will be followed by Jake Peavy before the rotation resets.

It appears for the time being that Brandon Workman will remain in the minors. He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday in order to clear a roster spot for De La Rosa.
