Jon Lester has had a terrible spring and it got worse in the Cubs 11-6 loss on Saturday. Not only was he getting hit left and right, but he was topping out at 90 MPH. That's about 2-3 MPH less than a season ago. The Cubs opening day starter cannot succeed if he continues to pitch like he has this spring.

On the same day Almora found out his likely platoon partner in the center, Ian Happ was sent down, he went 2-for-4 and scored a run against Colorado. Almora is up to .388 this spring.
