As baseball’s 2014 trade deadline approaches it is looking more and more like the Boston Red Sox will move Jon Lester out of town. Reports late Tuesday night confirm that at least four teams are after the 30-year-old three-time All-Star.
The Oakland A’s, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers and Pittsburgh Pirates are all apparently in on the big lefty and the Red Sox are listening to offers and trying to make a deal happen. So far this season Lester has made 21 starts and is 10-7 with a 2.52 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP. He also boasts 149 strikeouts against just 32 walks in 143 innings.
