Cubs place LHP Jon Lester on 10-day disabled list

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs got an encouraging report on Jon Lester before placing the ace left-hander on the 10-day disabled list on Friday.

Lester was examined by team physician Dr. Stephen Gryzlo after he departed Chicago's 13-10 loss to Cincinnati on Thursday in the second inning. He was diagnosed with tightness in his left lat and general shoulder fatigue, but his shoulder and side were deemed structurally sound.

The Cubs are hoping rest will clear up both issues and Lester will be able to return not long after he becomes eligible.
