John Lannan will miss roughly 6 weeks with a quad strain in his left leg, just above his knee. I spoke with Lannan around 3:30 pm, and he thought that he’d be back much sooner. But the word from Charlie Manuel is that the lefty will be out an extended period.
The Phillies will make a corresponding move to bring a reliever up, then make a move Monday for a starter from Lehigh Valley. They’ll select from Jonathan Pettibone, Ethan Martin, or Tyler Cloyd, Ruben Amaro said today. He also mentioned Adam Morgan, but he’s least likely to be selected as he tossed 100 pitches today.
Domonic Brown is OK; he had a x-rays on his back, which came back negative. Saw him out in the field shagging flies, and he looked fine.
The lineup is in for...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Back on December 19, I praised the Phillies signing of John Lannan from the standpoint that he minimized risk in the rotation at a nominal cost. With Roy Halladay representing a major question mark heading into the season, opting for more of a sure-thing in Lannan made sense over doling out $8+ million per year to Brandon McCarthy or Shaun Marcum.
The latter two pitchers had the...
The Phillies announced John Lannan was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained quadriceps tendon in his left knee. Lannan attributed his knee troubles to tendonitis to reporters after last night’s game.
There has been no corresponding move made yet but Adam Morgan is making quite the impression in Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Morgan has thrown five innings, giving up one earned in today’s...
Wednesday brought double bad luck for the Phillies. By "double" I am not referring to the two losses in one evening, but the Phillies double double-losses: two games lost, two key players injured. In Wednesday night's clunker against the Cincinnati Reds. Both outfielder Domonic Brown and starting pitcher John Lannan...
The Philadelphia Phillies have placed left-handed starting pitcher John Lannan on the 15-day disabled list due to a knee injury, according to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly.
Phillies place Lannan on DL. No move to replace yet. Adam Morgan is pitching today for Lehigh.

The injury has officially been termed as a strained...
Domonic Brown felt and heard a pop when he made a diving catch against the Cincinnati Reds. The Philadelphia Phillies outfielder said he tried to take a few swings after he felt the pop in his back and it really hurt. However, Brown does not expect the injury to be serious. John Lannan's injury may be a little more serious. He is experiencing knee soreness that likely...
Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher John Lannan was placed on the 15 day disabled list after injuring his knee in last nights game against the Cincinnati Reds. Lannan left the game after pitching only 1 2/3 innings giving up 6 earned runs on 8 hits including a homerun and a walk.
Lannan was diagnosed with a strained quadriceps tendon in his left knee. The Phillies have not made...
After experience major pains in Cincinnati earlier this week, an extension of the offensive troubles in Miami, the Phillies lit up the board with 13 hits, but still fell short against the Cardinals, 4-3.
Hamels Returning to Form
-Cole Hamels looked closer to the Hamels of old, as he struck out eight Cardinals in seven innings. He allowed five hits, two walks, and three runs, but...
After a three-game sweep from the Cincinnati Reds, the Phillies started a blank slate tonight at Citizens Bank Park against the Cardinals. Cole Hamels and Adam Wainwright squared off tonight. The Cardinals jumped ahead to a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth after Yadier Molina doubled to score...
Well that was fast and also quite predictable. Yet, another game is on tap. John Lannan looks to build on his rather impressive start to the season against Mike Leake, who comes into tonight's contest with a 6.75 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in two starts. Just the right guy to...
We are passing along some injury updates this Thursday afternoon. We mentioned yesterday that both John Lannan and Domonic Brown suffered injury's in last night's Cincinnati Reds blowout against the Phillies. It appears that one player is better than originally expected; the other is worse than expected. John Lannan -...

There are only a few number ones in the majors like Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies. What west coast hurlers are his equal?
TAL’S HANDY STATS
I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the MLB 5 periodically. The number of games played by the Phillies is in the headline at the end.
If you’re interested in checking out something different...
As if the Phillies' offensive struggles weren't noticeable enough, it was made clear tonight in Cincinnati. Mike Leake and John Lannan squared off tonight in what would be quite an ugly game. John Lannan would go only 1.2 innings tonight. Lannan got the hook after allowing six earned runs on...
(Photo: Kevin Durso/Philliedelphia) After coming out of their six-game road trip 2-4, the Phillies (6-9) are back home tonight to host the St. Louis Cardinals (8-6) for a four-game set. With offense being an issue lately, there are other concerns that the Phillies must tend to - including John Lannan....
It is hard to believe that the MLB season is already 10% over, but baseball is a long grind and there is a long long way to go. After 1/10 of the season, what do we know and what don’t we know about the 2013 Philadelphia Phillies?
Lets start with what we know. Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee both look poised to have big seasons. While Cole struggled his first few times out, his stuff...
