Jon Lester mows down six in Friday's game

Jon Lester allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six across 2 2/3 innings in Friday's Cactus League game against the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Lester was able to overcome allowing too many base runners by striking out six across two 2/3 innings. He has had back-to-back quality outings. Lester owned a 13-10 record, 4.46 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 165 strikeouts across 171 2/3 innings last season. The crafty lefty will look to keep things rolling in his next scheduled spring start.

Jon Lester tosses three scoreless innings on Sunday

Jon Lester allowed two hits while striking out four through three scoreless innings in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

After getting roughed up for five runs (three earned) in his first spring outing, Lester bounced back to toss three shutout innings on Sunday. The 36-year old had a down season in 2019, owning a 13-10 record, 4.46 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 165 strikeouts across 171 2/3 innings. At this point of his career, Lester is a streaming option and mainly provides depth at the backend of fantasy rotations.
