Red Sox manager John Farrell recently met with Jon Lester at his home in Georgia and came away impressed with Lester's conditioning "and his frame of mind."

The Red Sox are banking on the hope that Farrell's return can get Lester back to being a top-of-the-rotation starter.

Lester had a 1.383 WHIP with a 9-14 record and 4.82 ERA in 33 starts and 205 1/3 innings in 2012.

One of the things the Red Sox need to work on with Lester is his constant battles with umpires. It's not doing him any favors and his reputation has spread around the league rapidly, according to a major league source.
