According to a published report in the Boston Globe, it was reported that Jon Lester’s cancer is in remission and that he will be in camp for spring training when the Red Sox report. There was no confirmation on this from Lester himself or the Red Sox.

If this report is true, this bodes well for Jon Lester. It was thought he might miss all of 2007 with the cancer. As far as the Red Sox plans for him in 2007, those are not known. I would think the Sox would bring him back slowly as to not take any chances with his health.

Update: As pointed out by Steve’s link in the comment’s section, Lester has officially been pronounced cancer free by his doctors. Lester said he has more session of chemo and will be ready for the start of spring training.
