The Cuban southpaw strolled up in bright, lime green when he stepped on the scale and registered 153.6 pounds. It’s been a couple of gray days for “The American Dream,” who threw out the first pitch from a damp mound at U.S. Cellular Field before Wednesday night’s White Sox-Astros game—a borderline pitch up in the zone, but when your batterymate is the Sox giant, 6-foot-6 pitching ace Chris Sale, the target sits high.

All the precipitation during the week was appropriate, though, as Lara tries to rain all over opponent Delvin Rodriguez’s parade Friday night at the UIC Pavilion. Rodriguez weighed in at 153.4, both of them comfortably under the 154 limit.
