Philadelphia Phillies' pitcher John Lannan made a rehab appearance at Double-A Reading on Wednesday night. The start came exactly eight weeks after Lannan sustained a quadriceps tendon strain in his left knee against the Cincinnati Reds.
As reported by Stephen Pianovich at MLB.com,
"Lannan made one rehab start for Class A Clearwater and went four
innings, while he let up one earned run on six hits and struck out five.
He said he was unsure of where or when his next start would be, but
added he would remain in Reading to do a workout Thursday, then "go with
what they tell me.""
Lannan pitched seven innings at Reading, allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings. He had excellent command with 61 strikes out of 85 pitches. He feels he is ready to pitch at the Major League Level.
In 2013, Lannan is 0-1 with a 6.14 earned run average in 14 2/3 innings. For his career, he is 42-53 with a 4.05 earned run average in 798 1/3 innings pitched.
