Jon Lester will start Game 1 of the World Series Wednesday night for the Red Sox. But manager John Farrell held off on naming the rest of his rotation Monday.
John Lackey is expected to start Game 2 Thursday with Clay Buchholz and Jake Peavy to follow when the series shifts to St. Louis.
“We’re still going through it,” Farrell said before the Sox worked out at Fenway Park. “We’ve got a good portion of [Tuesday] to spend internally and go over the Cardinals and all the information that’s attached to that.”
Lester is 2-1 with a 2.33 earned run average in three starts this postseason. He has a 2.49 ERA in 11 postseason appearances in his career. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
