Chicago Cubs: Jon Lester tweets about passing of Jose Fernandez

Marlins standout pitcher Jose Fernandez has passed away in a boating accident. Authorities found a 30-foot boat overturned that had crashed into rocks off Miami Beach around 3 am EST, and three people were found dead according to multiple reports.

Veteran Cubs pitcher Jon Lester tweeted his sadness over news of Fernandez's passing on Sunday morning.

"I tend to stay off of Twitter to start days but I cannot believe the news about Jose Fernandez," Lester tweeted. "The game and the world just lose a great one."

Fernandez was only 24-years old and prayers out to his family and everyone in the Marlins organization.

Today's game against the Atlanta Braves has been canceled.
