Fantasy Tip: Lester righted the ship after limping into the break with two awful outings July 3-9, allowing 13 runs and 13 hits with four walks in just 4 1/3 innings. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues, as the break looks like it did him some good.

Cubs | Jon Lester stuck in tailspin

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 20:53:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester allowed five earned runs, four hits and three walks with three strikeouts over three innings in a no-decision Saturday, July 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has allowed 13 runs in just 4 1/3 innings in the month of July.

Fantasy Tip: Lester was the National League pitcher of the month in June, but like the rest of the Cubs he is struggling hard in July. The All-Star break cannot get here soon enough for Lester and his teammates.
