OAKLAND, Calif. — A person with knowledge of the trade says the Oakland Athletics have won the Jon Lester sweepstakes, acquiring the left-hander along with outfielder Jonny Gomes from the Boston Red Sox for slugging outfielder Yoenis Cespedes before today’s trade deadline.

Lester is 10-7 with a 2.52 ERA in 21 starts.

Cespedes is in the third season of a $36 million, four-year contract he signed before 2012.
