Jon Lester allows three earned runs in five innings against the Orioles

Jon Lester allowed three earned runs in five innings against the Orioles. Lester allowed three hits and one walk with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

On Saturday, Lester tossed 70 pitches with a 7% whiff rate and 21% CSW% overall. This comes after Lester threw seven scoreless against the Marlins. He isn't someone to rely on outside of NL-only leagues.

Jon Lester throws seven scoreless and hits a home run against the Marlins

Jon Lester threw seven scoreless innings with six hits, zero walks, and seven strikeouts. Lester also hit a two-run home run to extend their 12-0 lead.

Fantasy Impact

This start came after Lester allowed 13 earned runs (15 total) in six innings of work in two previous starts. The Marlins were without Jazz Chisholm, Garrett Cooper, and Starling Marte, so take that into consideration. Lester's 18 called strikes boosted his 35% CSW% overall on Monday. Don't chase this start for Lester, but the full season line is more indicative of his future production.

Jon Lester struggles and gives up eight runs (three earned)

Jon Lester struggled and gave up eight runs (three earned) in Saturday's loss to the Giants. Lester allowed nine hits and two walks with one strikeout in 2 2/3 innings. He labored through this start and threw 80 pitches.

Fantasy Impact

Granted that Lester faced the Padres and Giants, but he allowed 13 runs with five of them earned in the past two starts. He isn't someone to rely on even in deeper leagues.

Jon Lester allows five runs (two earned) in 3.1 innings

Jon Lester started against the Padres and only went 3 1/3 innings. Lester allowed six hits, five runs (two earned), and four walks with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

With 14 earned runs in the past three starts, Lester isn't startable in any format. He'll most likely destroy your ratios with minimal strikeouts.

Jon Lester earns his 2nd win yet allows five earned runs on Wednesday

Jon Lester earned his 2nd win of the season yet allowed five earned runs on Wednesday. Lester went five innings with seven hits, five earned runs, two walks, and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Lester has allowed 12 earned runs over his past two starts spanning 7 1/3 innings. In two previous starts, Lester allowed two earned runs in each start. That is the built-in risk with Lester, which means he is someone to avoid in most matchups.
