Nationals say lefty Jon Lester to have thyroid gland removed

Washington Nationals left-hander Jon Lester is leaving spring training camp to have surgery for the removal of his thyroid gland, manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday.

The 37-year-old Lester was to travel from West Palm Beach, Florida, to New York on Wednesday; the Nationals said the operation is planned for Friday.

"Hopefully he can pitch again in about a week," Martinez said in a video conference with reporters before Washington's exhibition game against the Miami Marlins. "We want him to get it taken care of now, so it's not an issue."
