Josh Lester back on the bench Thursday

Orioles first baseman Josh Lester is on the bench Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Lester had a tough night on Tuesday, going hitless with a pair of strikeouts in his club's 3-1 loss. While he's getting some reps with Ryan Mountcastle out of the lineup, Lester is now hitting just .222 without an extra-base hit across 18 plate appearances in the big leagues this season.

Josh Lester back in the lineup Wednesday

Orioles first baseman Josh Lester is back in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

It's the second start for Lester over the club's last three games as Ryan Mountcastle is sidelined on the injured list. The long-time Triple-A player has appeared at the plate 15 times with the Orioles this season with four singles in that time while he hit .282 with 14 homers across 52 games at Triple-A this season.

Josh Lester on the bench Tuesday

Orioles first baseman Josh Lester is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Lester got a rare start on Sunday and took advantage with a pair of singles and a pair of RBI across four at-bats. He will return to the bench following an off day on Monday, however, while he's hitting .267 with four RBI and a .236 wOBA across a small 15 plate-appearance sample in the big leagues this season.
