Jon Lester's recent struggles have been well documented, but the Red Sox' lefty will make his scheduled start in the upcoming weekend series with the New York Yankees. Bobby Valentine and the rest of Boston's staff seem willing to let Lester work through his struggles against the best of the best.
Lucky for the Sox, David Ortiz is scheduled to rejoin the team for the Yankees series after being placed on the disabled list with an Achilles injury. Ortiz won't be in the lineup, but the fact that he's going to be with the team again is a step in the right direction.
Check out the video above as Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe joins Red Sox Gameday Live, presented by Uno's to discuss what Lester and Ortiz mean for the upcoming series at Yankee Stadium.
