SHARE Jon Lester spends his All-Star break with family

Cubs pitcher Jon Lester wasn’t named to the All-Star team this season, and instead of working on his pitching, the left-hander is resting his arm and spending time with his son.

Lester tweeted a picture of him and his son fishing, but his mind was still on baseball. Instead of saying Lester and his son were fishing at the farm, the Cubs pitcher said they were fishing at the game.

Lester is 4-8 with a 3.59 ERA and 109 strikeouts. The Cubs pitcher is having one of his worst seasons statically, and he hasn’t won a game since May 16.
