Minnesota Twins v Oakland AthleticsPrized free agent Jon Lester agreed to a six-year, $155 million contract with the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, sources told Yahoo Sports, launching the upstart Cubs’ return to the high-end free-agent market and rewarding the 31-year-old left-hander with the second-highest average annual salary ever for a starting pitcher.The Cubs emerged victorious in a ferocious bidding war that included the San Francisco Giants, who had agreed to offer Lester a seven-year deal for around $168 million, and Lester’s longtime team, theBoston Red Sox, who were runners-up after a final offer of six years and $135 million, according to sources. The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the foray late in the process, too, and presented an offer similar to the Cubs’, but Lester chose to reunite with Chicago president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer, the executives who drafted him in Boston.
