Fantasy Impact:

Lester struggled to a 5.16 ERA over 61 innings in 2020 with a 15.8% strikeout rate, which was easily the lowest of his career. He'll look to be this year's Anibal Sanchez for the Nationals, a soft-tossing veteran clinging on to the last years of his career. He is currently going outside the top-600 in drafts, and that ADP should only slightly rise with this news.
