by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox and pitcher Jon Lester won't have further discussions about a contract extension until after the season, reports the Boston Herald. Team owner John Henry sent this email to the paper:

"I’m not going to discuss Jon’s situation out of respect for both Jon and (general manager) Ben (Cherington) other than to say that both sides have put further discussion off until after the season. It’s clear that both Jon and our organization would like to see Jon back next year if possible."

Lester, whose deal expires at season's end, said earlier he didn't want his contract talks to become a distraction for the team. He's 10-7 with a 2.50 ERA in 20 starts.
