Cubs' Jon Lester: Walks five in no decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (10-4) allowed four runs on four hits and five walks while striking out seven over four innings, but received no decision Sunday at the Brewers.

Despite solid strikeout totals, Lester struggled with his control and left the contest with a 4-0 deficit, but the offense bailed him out from a potential loss after his departure. He's now allowed 18 earned runs in his last 16 innings over four starts to raise his ERA to 3.09 on the year. He'll make his next start Friday against the Mariners.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Refinds form in first start since Break
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lester (10-4) earned the win Monday by holding the Mets to one run over 7.2 innings. He allowed four hits, walked three and struck out three.

Monday's start was a welcome return to form for the lefty, as in his final two starts before the All-Star break, he'd allowed 13 runs in 4.1 innings. Nonetheless, it's been an excellent season for him overall, as Lester will carry a 2.89 ERA and 1.07 WHIP into his next start, Sunday against the Brewers.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Chased early again in Saturday no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lester didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 12-6 loss to the Pirates but did pitch poorly for the second consecutive start. He surrendered five earned runs on four hits and three walks over three innings while striking out three.

The veteran southpaw looked vulnerable once again, giving up two homers and laboring through 64 pitches over his brief time on the mound. Lester has unexpectedly imploded over his last two starts, surrendering 13 earned runs on 13 hits and four walks over just 4.1 innings during that span. The Cubs and fantasy owners alike will certainly hope that the All-Star break will be the time off Lester needs to return to previous form, which had included a five-start winning streak before the last pair of outings.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Shortest outing of season in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (9-4) got hammered for eight runs on nine hits and a walk over just 1.1 innings Sunday, striking out three, in a 14-3 loss to the Mets.

It was his shortest outing of the season, snapping a string of seven straight quality starts, and it was the first time in 2016 that Lester had allowed more than five runs in a start. The brutal line added more than half a run to his ERA, but the left-hander still has an excellent 2.67 mark on the year. He'll take another run at his 10th win Saturday in Pittsburgh.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Misses 10th win by one out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (9-3) dished 7.2 innings, allowing one run, three hits and a walk while striking out four in Tuesday's no-decision against the Reds.

Lester was dominant on Tuesday, lowering his ERA for the month of June down to 1.41 over 44.2 innings (six starts). Unfortunately, his performance went by the wayside as Hector Rondon blew the save, giving up the tying run with two outs in the ninth. His name sometimes gets overshadowed by his own teammate Jake Arrieta - and some guy named Kershaw - but, the 32-year-old Lester has been dominant this season and is just about as good as them come. He'll be on the road Sunday for his next start, looking for his elusive 10th win, against the Mets.
