The Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis are all reportedly interested in signing free-agent pitcher Jon Lester.
A fourth team has shown interest in possibly trying to sign free-agent pitcher Jon Lester, ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports.
According to Stark, rival teams believe that St. Louis Cardinals are interested in Lester as well.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported last week that the Cardinals had “no plans to bring Lester to St. Louis for a visit” and their interest in him “appears as much opportunistic as enthusiastic.”
Lester went 16-11 with a 2.46 ERA last season with the Red Sox and Oakland Athletics, who acquired him at the trading deadline.
