According to SI.com, the Boston Red Sox have made a contract offer to free agent pitcher Jon Lester.
Lester had his best year as a professional, posting his lowest ERA and fewest walks of his career, since becoming a full time starter.
Despite being traded to the Oakland Athletics at the deadline, nobody expected him to continue his career in Oakland because of the contract he would demand.
The terms of the contract offer have not been disclosed. Lester has met with the Chicago Cubs and is scheduled to meet with the Atlanta Braves on Thursday.
