Jon Lester headed to the IL

Chicago Cubs ace Jon Lester is being placed on the 10-day injured list because of a hamstring injury suffered in Monday's home opener against the Pirates, a source said Tuesday.

It still isn't known how serious the injury is.

Lester sent out a tweet about his injury earlier Tuesday.

Bank of America to raise its minimum wage to $20 an hour
Wages at big banks began nudging up a few years ago as industry profits reached their highest levels since the financial crisis. Bank of America is raising its starting pay to $20 an hour over a two-year period, starting with a hike next month.

Should they go outside the 40-man (which I doubt given Chatwood's availability) for a fill-in starter or piggyback, Colin Rea offers the most experience (25 career Major League Baseball starts with SD). Placing Lester on the IL would allow him to return as soon as April 19 against the Diamondbacks and perhaps miss only one start. "He may. So you have to start developing plan B. We'll start developing plan B. We have different options". With Mike Montgomery on the IL, the most logical choice as a fill-in is Tyler Chatwood, who was stretched out in spring training, and has proceeded to throw at least one inning in each of his relief appearances since the beginning of the season. You certainly don't want him out there just because he's "healthy", but his performance is compromised. "And again, I don't even know if the guys upstairs have other thoughts regarding this".

Lester, 35, said he felt discomfort while running the bases in the second inning.

"I didn't feel anything as far as a pop or anything like that", Lester said after the game. I've never really had anything wrong with my legs before. "We'll find out some more tomorrow".
