Jon Lester hit hard by Rockies Thursday

Jon Lester was roughed up by the Rockies Thursday in Chicago's 7-5 spring loss to the Colorado club. He allowed four earned runs in 3.2 innings along with one walk and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact:

Lester also served up two home runs in the third innings, one to Garrett Hampson and the other to David Dahl. We aren't worried about a poor spring performance from a veteran like Lester, but we are worried about his pitiful 4.57 SIERA and 2.33 K/BB ratio from a year ago, along with career worst velocity and a rapidly declining SwStr rate. Even with a FantasyPros consensus ADP of 163, Lester should be avoided on draft day.
