by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Cubs officially announced the signing of pitcher Jon Lester on Saturday, according to MLB.com. Lester and the Cubs agreed on a six-year, $155 million deal earlier in the week during the winter meetings, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The three-time All-Star was 16-11 with a 2.46 ERA in 32 starts between the Red Sox and Athletics in 2014. He is 116-67 with a 3.58 ERA in his nine-year MLB career.

Giants informed they're out of Jon Lester sweepstakes
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans told reporters at the winter meetings on Tuesday that free agent starting pitcher Jon Lester informed the team he won't be signing with San Francisco, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

"We did not receive a rose," Evans said, referencing the popular reality TV show, "The Bachelor," per Alex Pavlovic of the Bay Area News Group.

According to Heyman, the Cubs and Red Sox are still in play, and the Dodgers appear to be a long shot, since they've never met with Lester. The Cubs and Red Sox are expected to meet with Lester's camp late Tuesday, as the free agent ace reaches a final decision.
