I was just wondering what your guys thoughts were on when he would return and how good he will be? Thanks.

The latest on Yahoo:

Yahoo wrote:Apr 28 Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester (cancer) allowed three walks in five shutout innings for Triple-A Pawtucket, Friday, April 27, according to Peter Araham of The (Westchester, N.Y.) Journal News. This was expected to be his second-to-last rehab start before rejoining Boston's starting rotation. Lester was 0-0 with a 2.98 ERA in three appearances for Single-A Greenville.


I stashed him on my DL a couple weeks ago. :-D

heres the latest on rotoworld

The Boston Herald reports that Jon Lester is unlikely "to be called up anytime soon" from Triple-A.
Lester makes his final minor league rehab start at Pawtucket Wednesday night, but according to the newspaper the Red Sox have decided to keep him in the rotation at Triple-A until he builds up more stamina. "Our No. 1 responsibility is for Lester and his long-term health," manager Terry Francona said. "You can read into that what you want."

NESN just reported that Lester was removed from his start tonight after only 3 innings. Perhaps they're preparing to call him up?

3IP, 3H, 2ER, 3BB, 4K, 63 Pitches/39 Strikes

The 2 earned runes were allowed in the 1st.

Update: NESN reported that it was minor cramping in Lester's forearm, and he was removed as a precaution.

He left today's AAA game with cramping in his forearm, definitely NOT because he's going to be called up soon. I think Lester won't be up until June at the earliest, unless Tavarez really starts crapping the bed.

My thinking is that with all the young pitchers going down (Harden, Felix and now the recently brought up Hughes), teams like the Red Sox and Giants (Lincecum) are going to be extra cautious.

I still think Lincecum will be coming up soon, possibly mid-May, but given that Lester's coming back from cancer, he's not going to be rushed.

We may see Hansack for a few starts before we see Lester. The Red Sox rotation is crusing so there is no need to rush him at this point.

Yahoo wrote:May 2 The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo reports Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester (cancer/arm) left his three-inning, 63-pitch outing due to minor cramping in his left forearm. Lester, who was scheduled to throw between 90-100 pitches against the Indianapolis Indians, apparently suffered from discomfort in the forearm area and was not able to snap off his pitches.
