Jon Lester Fangraphs

His batted ball profile has changed since his first full season with the Cubs with his GB% dropping each season (49% to 47% to 46% to 38%) with his home run rate, unsurprisingly, heading the other way (.7 HR/9 to 0.9 to 1.3 to 1.2). Recency bias may be strong with him and some owners may remember the 3.32 ERA and 18 Wins. Of the 57 qualified starters, his K-BB% was the 11th lowest at 11.1% and has been on a four-year decline (19.4% to 19.3% to 18.2% to 15.7% to 11.2%).

If it wasn’t for his 80% LOB% (8th highest) his 3.32 ERA would have been closer to his ERA estimators (~4.50).
The cause of this past season’s drop was his strikeout rate dropping from 9.0 K/9 to 7.4 K/9 with all his pitches performing worse (Contact% up 5% points) while his velocity stayed flat. They need to remember 13 Wins and 4.33 ERA from 2017.
