Jon Lester serves up grand slam in final start of the season

Jon Lester pitched five innings and surrendered six hits, four runs, and four walks while striking out four in a no-decision against the Cubs on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Lester was clinging to a 1-0 lead in the fifth inning before allowing a grand slam to Trayce Thompson (brother of NBA star Klay Thompson). The 37-year-old finishes the season with a 7-6 record, 4.71 ERA, and 1.51 WHIP in 28 starts with the Nationals and Cardinals.

Jon Lester (undisclosed) lined up to make one more start

Cardinals LHP Jon Lester (undisclosed) is lined up to make one more start during the final week of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact

Lester is dealing with an undisclosed issue that popped up during Saturday's start against the Cubs. It sounds as if it won't prevent him from making one final outing, however.

Jon Lester allows four runs in no-decision on Saturday

Jon Lester surrendered eight hits, four runs (three earned), and three walks while striking out six across five innings in a no-decision against the Cubs in his return to Wrigley Field on Saturday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

Lester entered the day having notched three consecutive quality starts over the past two weeks but simply didn't have his best stuff on Saturday. Nonetheless, the Cardinals rallied yet again in the later innings to win their 15th straight game. Lester will take a 4.62 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into his final regular season start next weekend against these same Cubs at home.

Jon Lester beats Brewers with quality start; Cardinals win ninth straight

Jon Lester pitched six solid innings on Monday, allowing just three hits and two runs while striking out two and improving his record to 7-6 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

The Cardinals have now won nine straight games as Lester out-dueled Freddy Peralta. Both runs allowed were solo home runs in the second inning (Avisail Garcia and Luis Urias). Lester has now recorded three consecutive quality starts and six straight starts allowing two earned runs or fewer. Amazingly, he's accomplished this despite allowing eight home runs in his past five starts. The 37-year-old owns a 4.59 ERA and 1.47 WHIP and will face one of his former teams at Wrigley Field this weekend. Given how well he and the Cardinals are rolling, he makes for an intriguing streaming option for that matchup.

Jon Lester (6-6) picks up win with quality start against Mets

Jon Lester went six solid innings against the Mets on Wednesday, allowing six hits and three runs (two earned) while matching a season high with seven strikeouts in an 11-4 victory.

Fantasy Impact

The 37-year-old has been on a nice little run of late, having allowed no more than two earned runs in five consecutive starts. A pair of solo home runs from Pete Alonso and Kevin Pillar accounted for the earned runs against Lester. He'll take a 4.67 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into a pair of starts next week against the Brewers and Cubs, making him an intriguing streaming option during the fantasy playoffs.
