Phillies sign Lannan

|

Left-hander John Lannan has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Phillies, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today.  The contract includes performance bonuses.

Lannan, 28, went 4-1 with a 4.13 ERA in six starts for the Washington Nationals last season.  He also made 24 starts for triple-A Syracuse, going 9-11, 4.30 ERA in 148.2 innings.  Since the beginning of the 2011 season, Lannan is 13-13 with a 3.77 ERA in 39 major league starts.

"Clearly we have a familiarity with John and his past performance and success in this division helps us add depth to our rotation," said Amaro.

Originally selected by the Nationals in the 11th round of the 2005 First-Year Player Draft, Lannan is 42-52 with a 4.01 ERA in 134 career games (all starts).  A native of Long Beach, N.Y., Lannan has made at least 30 professional starts in each of his last five seasons (2008-12), averaging 187.2 innings per season over that span.
