3 days agoChicago Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester put together six shutout innings on Saturday versus the Pirates. Lester also allowed four hits and struck out three on the afternoon, but allowed five walks. Lester had really been struggling entering Saturday’s contest and it’s good to see him bounce back with a strong start. Lester should still be started with caution and will face the Nationals on Friday at home.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBaller
