Three teams are finalists for Jon Lester for free agent left-hander Jon Lester, The Dodgers, Cubs and Giants, and not in that order. Now a mystery team appears to be on the sweeps.
Multiple sources are saying that the Dodgers are prepared to make one last push to sign Lester. One source says the Dodgers have already made an offer to Lester, and the other expects them to swoop in as the final bids are being entered.
In 2014, Lester, 30, posted a stellar 2.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 220/48 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings this past season
