    Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork. Custom Phoenix Suns Jerseys .com) - Jon Lester has officially reunited with Theo Epstein. On Saturday, the Chicago Cubs announced a deal with Lester, who reportedly agreed to a six-year contract worth $155 million. He will be formally introduced by the Cubs at Spiaggia restaurant in downtown Chicago on Monday. The 30-year-old Lester went 6-4 with a 2.35 ERA for the Oakland Athletics after he and outfielder Jonny Gomes were acquired in a blockbuster trade- deadline swap from the Red Sox for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. The southpaw went 16-11 with a career-best 2.46 ERA in 2014. Lester is most known for his prowess in the postseason, where he is 6-4 with 2.57 ERA in 14 career appearances, including a perfect 3-0 mark with a sparkling 0.43 ERA in the World Series. Lester has a 116-67 record with a 3.58 ERA over his nine-year career. He turned down a $70 million contract extension from Boston during the spring, the team which he helped win two World Series titles. Epstein became the youngest general manager in MLB history when the Red Sox hired him following the 2002 season and helped them win a pair of World Series prior to becoming the president of baseball operations for the Cubs in 2011. Jason Kidd Jersey .

Finleys agent, Blake Baratz, said Thursday that Finley has been working with the Packers organization in determining whats best after suffering a neck injury last month in a game against the Browns. Baratz said it was collectively determined that surgery may not be 100 per cent necessary, but is a "proactive measure that should alleviate future risks with regards to a similar episode or re-injury." The statement said Finleys long-term health is the primary concern, and that Finley intends to resume playing again after surgery to be performed by the Pittsburgh Steelers team neurosurgeon. No timeline for surgery was given. The doctoor, Joseph Maroon, is experienced in conducting the type of procedure on professional athletes in contact sports, and is confident of a full recovery for Finley, the statement said. Jared Dudley Jersey. "While his return to professional football is a hot-topic conversation, his ability to live a long and fulfilling life with his loved ones is by far and away our main objective," the statement said. Finley and his family said they appreciated the outpouring of support received since the injury. Finley was having good year with 25 catches for 300 yards and three touchdowns when he was hurt. Finley, who was officially placed on season-ending injured reserve last week, is a free agent after this year.
