On Sunday morning, the Red Sox will make “an announcement regarding Jon Lester,” which will almost certainly be that Lester and the Sox will make the extension reported last Sunday by Yahoo! Sports official. The contract extension, according to the report, will be for $30 million over five years with a $13 million team option for 2014.
Also, Lester will make an intra-squad start at the team’s minor league complex tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. He was going to travel to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for a start against the Orioles, but Adam Mills will make that trip instead.
