Jon Lester Will Finally Make His Nationals Debut Tonight

Chicago Cubs

Well, if you don’t count Spring Training, we’re finally going to see Jon Lester pitching in a non-Cubs uniform. He’s about to be activated by the Nationals after missing the first month of the season while on the COVID list.

Lester will start tonight for the Nationals, who signed him this offseason after six years with the Cubs:

Glad that Lester is both OK from the COVID, and ramped up to fitness to pitch. I wish only good things for him this year, and I hope that this COVID issue doesn’t wind up muddying what could have been a great bounce-back year for him (remember how he had that thyroid surgery before the season because they’d figured out why he was physically down a bit last year?).
