Sox option Lester, recall Lopez to Boston

Jon Lester was optioned to Double-A Portland today, in order to make room for left hander Javier Lopez on the active roster. Lester had gone 2-0 with a 5.67 ERA in 6 starts since being called up on July 23rd. The demotion is not permanent as he is expected only to miss one start before he is to return for a start on September 2nd. Julian Tavarez is expected to take Lester's start for Sunday's game against the White Sox. This will be the third time Lopez has been with the big club this season.
