Red Sox | Good chance both Jon Lester, John Lackey traded

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:34:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox SPs Jon Lester and John Lackey have a "very good chance" to both be traded, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for the likes of Brandon Workman and Allen Webster, two youngsters that would likely seal up rotation spots for the rest of the second half. Keep that in mind in AL-only leagues.

Marlins | Express interest in Jon Lester

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:36:26 -0700

The Miami Marlins are interested in acquiring Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester, and they reached out to the team regarding the pitch Tuesday, July 29. The Red Sox are believed to be asking for OF Christian Yelich, a proposal the Marlins would not consider.

Fantasy Tip: Interesting. Miami has worked their way into the postseason race, and Lester would strictly be a rental for the rest of the season, as they likely wouldn't be able to afford him once he hits free agency.
