Jon Lester (hamstring) says he intends to make his next start. He was pulled after two innings in Monday's 10-0 win over the Pirates due to hamstring tightness. (Jesse Rogers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

More specifically, Lester said, "as of now" he's making his next start, and that tomorrow would tell us more. It's easy to get worried whenever a pitcher leaves a start with injury, especially a 35-year-old pitcher, but this injury seems relatively minor. He could get pushed back a few days, but an IL trip seems unlikely.
