Player Notes
John Lester was dominant in Friday's victory over the Mariners, racking up seven strikeouts over six shutout innings.

Advice: The veteran southpaw scattered four hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. He has been tremendous for the Cubs this season, registering a 2.95 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 125/38 K/BB ratio over 128 1/3 innings while posting an 11-4 record. He'll look to replicate this fine outing when he does battle against the Marlins on Wednesday.

Fri, Jul 29 Rotoworld
Jon Lester surrendered four earned runs over four innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Advice: Lester struggled from the jump in this one, yielding two runs in the bottom of the first inning on two walks, three singles, and three stolen bases. Chicago's offense rallied to grab a 6-5 victory, with Joe Nathan earning his first major league win since September 2014. Lester will try to bounce back next time out against the Mariners.
