|Jon Lester allows one run in solid outing |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/15/14) Red Sox starter Jon Lester turned in a solid performance on Saturday, but was hit with his first loss of the spring against the Phillies.
Lester allowed a run-scoring double to Marlon Byrd in the opening frame. He yielded one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five over four innings pitched. He has allowed just one run over his first seven innings of work in Grapefruit League play.

(3/10/14) Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester took the hill for the first time in an exhibition game this spring Monday against the Rays, and the results were pretty good for the left-handed hurler, who is on track to start opening day.
Lester tossed three scoreless innings, allowing one hit and one walk. He also recorded four strikeouts.
|Red Sox begin exension talks with Jon Lester |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/1/14) Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester has spent plenty of time talking about a contract extension in the spring, and it looks like the team is starting to talk to his agent about them as well.
According to Boston.com, Lester's agents have already had at least two conversations with the team about a possible extension for the veteran left-hander. Lester is coming off a 15-8 season in which he posted a 3.75 ERA in 213 1/3 innings, his fifth time pitching 200-plus innings in the last six years.
|Jon Lester ready for 'tough process' as free agency looms |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/17/14) Red Sox starting pitcher Jon Lester, who will be a free agent after the season, reiterated Monday he will do what it takes to finish his career with Boston.
"I’m not going to go back on what I said," Lester said, per the Boston Herald. "I mean, I said what I said from the heart and I mean it. We’ll see where it goes from there. We still have a long way to go. It’s going to be a tough process. Like I said earlier, that’s why I let those guys, call me when you got something. I don’t want to hear about the day to day of it, when it starts, when it happens. But I have to worry myself about the field. I can’t worry about the other stuff, it’ll take care of itself."
|Jon Lester has pitched at least 190 innings in each of the last six seasons. In 2013, Lester pitched a career-high 213 1/3 (in the regular season), going 15-8 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. Lester struck out 177 batters -- the second straight year his K/9 was below 8.0. After getting off to a magnificent start (he had a 1.73 ERA after four starts), Lester struggled through parts of May and essentially all of June. But after posting a 4.58 ERA in the first half of 2013, Lester turned things back around, finishing with a 2.57 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in the second half. He allowed more than three runs just twice after the All-Star break, and struck out eight or more batters four times in that span. Lester's strong finish -- in his first season working with former pitching coach John Farrell -- could be an indication of better things to come in 2014. He can be taken in the middle rounds of most drafts.
