BOSTON -- If ace Jon Lester doesn't throw another pitch in 2013, his postseason will go down as one of the best in Red Sox history.

The lefty is 4-1 with a 1.56 ERA in five starts.

However, Lester still might have a chance to add to those numbers. Though he pitched Game 5 on Monday, Lester could resurface out of the bullpen if he is needed in Games 6 or 7 (if necessary).

Lester would have one day of rest leading up to Game 6, and two prior to Game 7.

"I'll get with Jon here today as he goes through his workout to find out where he is physically," said manager John Farrell.

Lester pitched through some discomfort in his back in his Game 5 win.

Felix Doubront, who pitched two innings in Game 3 and another 2 2/3 in Game 4, will be available in Game 6, said Farrell.
