Jon Lester allows five runs Friday versus Cincinnati

Jon Lester went 5 2/3 innings allowing five runs with 11 base runners. He also struck out four. He left trailing but was spared the loss when the Cubs tied it in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Impact

Cincinnati is an offensive ballpark and the Reds are a good offense. Lester had been great in his first three starts so it is unlikely to be a time to get concerned over this start.

Jon Lester allows one run in the opener

Jon Lester went five innings allowing a single run, though that was aided by a strange play where elite defender Javier Baez seemed to lose a ball in the white of a sign. He struck out seven but a pitch count of 102 led to a shortened outing.

Fantasy Impact

Lester had some strong moments but seemed to struggle with control near the end. He is still a strong starter in fantasy but his owners are hoping for a longer outing next time.

Jon Lester solid versus the Rockies

Lester went three innings allowing a lone run and striking out four.

Fantasy Impact

His spring performance is largely irrelevant unless he gets hurt or shows some significant physical issues. Otherwise, he is an extremely good fantasy pitcher who should be owned in the vast majority of leagues he is eligible in.
