Lester's start pushed back by two days

  • Red Sox manager gave Jon Lester a break by pushing his start to Tuesday and moving Ryan Dempster to start on Sunday. Red Sox manager, Farrell said that making use of the opportunity to give Lester a few extra days would be beneficial for him.

    Fox News reports that Farrell announced this change before the teams met for the middle game and that the manager didn't provide any specific reasoning for the same. 

    The starter for Monday's series opener has not yet been determined.
