Cubs' Jon Lester: Dazzles in win Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (2-0) tossed six shutout innings and grabbed the win Thursday against the Cardinals. He allowed just two hits and a walk while striking out seven.

Lester was at his best in this one, as he rebounded from a mediocre start his last time out to completely stymie his team's biggest rival. The veteran lefty did need 96 pitches to get through his six innings of work, and the high pitch count was really the only thing that slowed him down, as the Cardinals mustered just a pair of singles against the 34-year-old. Lester now has his ERA down to 3.10 and he'll look to build on this start his next time out Wednesday in Cleveland.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester will take the mound against the Cardinals on Thursday, Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Lester was originally set to pitch Wednesday but will have his start pushed back a day due to inclement weather in Chicago. It's expected that he will still match up against Luke Weaver, though St. Louis has yet to officially set its rotation. Over three outings in 2018, Lester has logged a 4.40 ERA and 1.67 WHIP with an 11:7 K:BB in 14.1 innings.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Cardinals-Cubs postponed Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester won't start Wednesday against the Cardinals after the game was postponed due to inclement weather in Chicago.

Both the Cubs and Cardinals had mutual off days Thursday, so the two clubs will make up the postponed contest that day in a matinee. The Cubs haven't officially revealed how Wednesday's postponement will affect their rotation plans, but it's expected that Lester and the rest of the team's rotation members will simply be pushed back a day. Look for Lester to oppose Luke Weaver on Thursday.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Start pushed to Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester will start Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Cubs will push their starters back by a day after Monday's game was postponed due to inclement weather, so Tyler Chatwood will get the ball Tuesday while Lester shifts back to Wednesday. The Cardinals opted to switch things up, so Lester will now matchup against Luke Weaver.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Allows four runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester allowed four earned runs over five innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the Pirates. He gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out three.

This was a step back for Lester after tossing six shutout innings in his last start. The veteran lefty now has two subpar starts on either side of that shutout, and both of those outings were marked by low strikeout totals (five in 8.1 total innings). Lester will look to get back on track in his next start Monday at home against the Cardinals.
