Lester Returns

Terry Francona confirmed in his post-game press conference that Joel Piñeiro will be designated for assignment to make room for Jon Lester.

Lester has been somewhat shaky in his 14 Triple-A starts this season (3.89 ERA, 1.37 WHIP), but with the expiration date on Julian Tavarez’s career as a starer long past, this could be the time to see if the lefty is ready to contribute this season.

No one can deny his mettle, but to face the dynamic contenders from Cleveland on their home field will truly be a test. Godspeed, Jon Lester.
