Lester informs Giants they’re out; down to Cubs and Red Sox

As free-agent pitcher Jon Lester prepares to make his final decision, he has informed one team that they are out of the running.

Lester called the Giants on Tuesday night to tell them he is deciding whether he will sign with the Cubs or the Red Sox, one of his former teams. He is expected to receive a contract north of $150 million.

Bobby Evans, the Giants assistant general manager, hinted that the Giants would likely lose out on the Lester sweepstakes earlier Tuesday afternoon when he told reporters that the Giants are in the “backseat” in regards to Lester talks while other teams are “driving the car”.
