Extra Bases

Lester looking good in long toss

Greetings from Fenway Park. Shaping up to be a beautiful fall evening for tonight’s game against the Blue Jays.

Jon Lester is in the bullpen right now throwing a side session and, from our perch in the Fenway press box, he is looking pretty good. He doesn’t appear to have any issues landing on his right plant leg, which got dinged pretty hard on the quad by a comebacker to the mound in his last start last Friday night against the Yankees in New York.

Lester walked through the locker room a little bit before 4 p.m., and confirmed that it was a positive session.

“Everything felt fine,” Lester said. “Everything was good.”

We’ll wait to see what manager Terry Francona has to report about Lester’s bullpen session and we’ll update with tonight’s lineups.
