Jon Lester Ready to Make Return on Monday, Says There Are No Lingering Issues From Injury

Jon Lester last took the hill for the Red Sox on July 5. He lasted just four innings, before leaving that start with a strained lat muscle. Since that day, the Sox are 10-2.

To say the Red Sox have gotten by with out their big left-hander would be an understatement, no doubt. Still, they're more than ready to get him back and they will on Monday. The Boston Globe's Michael Vega was on Red Sox Gameday Live Presented by UNO on Saturday, and he said that it's all systems go for Lester's return to the mound on Monday against the Royals.
