Player Notes
Jon Lester was outstanding in a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday, allowing just a pair of unearned runs on five hits over eight strong innings.

Advice: Lester punched out seven on the afternoon without issuing a walk. It's the second consecutive outing that he's gone eight innings and hasn't allowed an earned run. The only damage against him came in the third inning where a pair of runs scored on an error by Xander Bogaerts. He'll bring a 2.73 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 122/29 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the White Sox.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Red Sox and Jon Lester have tabled in-season contract extension talks.

Advice: Both sides are still interested in a long-term deal, but Lester prefers to focus on pitching this season and put off contract talks. The left-hander understandably rejected a reported extension offer worth around $80 million this spring. The Red Sox will surely have to come up to $100 million or more to get something done.
