Jon Lester (hamstring) reportedly headed to the IL

by Garett Thomas | Cubs Correspondent | Tue, Apr 9th 1:10pm EDT

Jon Lester was pulled after two innings in Monday's start, due to a tight hamstring. This news contradicts Lester's original statement that he 'intended to make his next start.' It is not known how significant the injury is but manager Joe Maddon said Lester would miss 'one, maybe two starts.' (Jesse Rogers on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

While this IL-stint has not been made official, reliable sources are reporting this move by the Cubs. At the very least, fantasy owners need to expect Lester out for his next scheduled start on Sunday. The veteran lefty may miss a second start as well, so look for official announcements as they come.
