Buried amongst the Matsuzaka mayhem following yesterday’s debut is some encouraging news from down on the farm. Jon Lester made a short start in Class A Greenville last night, and the results were promising. According to the story, Lester was sharp, throwing strikes and touching 96 on the gun. A return to the rotation for the lefthander seems to be more and more likely (pending a very important follow-up checkup in late April), and the added depth would no doubt boost the Sox significantly.
