Source: Boston considering Jon Lester-for-Matt Kemp trade
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox are considering making a trade for Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, a team source told ESPN. If the Red Sox pursue a trade for Kemp, then a key piece in the deal going to Los Angeles would likely be starting pitcher Jon Lester.

"If he's healthy," one top talent evaluator said of Kemp, "he would absolutely destroy that ballpark [Fenway Park]."

Jon Lester wouldn't be 'surprised' if Boston trades him
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Following Friday's start against the Rays, Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester told reporters that he wouldn't be surprised if he was traded before the trade deadline, but still remains open to returning next season, MassLive.com reports.

"I don't think anything, especially in Boston, can surprise you," Lester said. "We all understand where we’re at, we understand it's a business. And (general manager Ben Cherington) and ownership have to do what's right for this organization and if that means whoever it may be is traded for prospects or other guys or whatever, that's just part of the business. We all understand it."

Lester's deal expires at the end of the season. In 21 starts, the left-hander is 10-7 with a 2.52 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 143 innings of work. His next start will come Wednesday at home against Toronto.

Jon Lester doesn't factor into the decision Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester turned in a solid start Friday against the Rays.

Lester allowed two runs on six hits over six innings of work. He struck out seven and walked one. Lester was strong early on, tossing four scoreless innings to open the game. Desmond Jennings was the first to strike against Lester, belting a two-run shot in the fifth inning. Lester was able to get through a scoreless sixth inning before he was removed from the game. He threw 110 pitches during the start.

The Rays were able to tie things up later in the game, giving Lester the no-decision. His next start will come against the Blue Jays.

Jon Lester contract talks put off until after the season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox and pitcher Jon Lester won't have further discussions about a contract extension until after the season, reports the Boston Herald. Team owner John Henry sent this email to the paper:

"I’m not going to discuss Jon’s situation out of respect for both Jon and (general manager) Ben (Cherington) other than to say that both sides have put further discussion off until after the season. It’s clear that both Jon and our organization would like to see Jon back next year if possible."

Lester, whose deal expires at season's end, said earlier he didn't want his contract talks to become a distraction for the team. He's 10-7 with a 2.50 ERA in 20 starts.

Jon Lester too much for slumping Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jon Lester showed his all-star form Sunday as the Red Sox completed a sweep of Kansas City. He gave up just four hits and two walks while fanning eight in eight innings to breeze to his 10th victory of the season.

Lester retired eight in a row at one point and has surrendered just one run in his last 31 innings pitched. He is set to start again Friday in Tampa Bay against fellow ace David Price.
