Philadelphia Phillies pitcher John Lannan is going to miss the rest of the season because of a 60% percent tear of a tendon in his knee. The tear will require surgery, which will keep him out for four to six months. Lannan will go get a second opinion but is pretty sure that he will need the surgery. Lannan said on Tuesday he has a 60 percent tear of a tendon in the knee. Phillies physician Michael Ciccotti has recommend surgery, although Lannan will receive a second opinion from Dodgers physician Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. “I’m pretty sure I’m going to get surgery,” Lannan said. “They’ve got to reattach the tendon to a healthy point in the knee.” (MLB) Lannan missed two months earlier this season with a strained quad tendon in that same knee.
