The Philadelphia Phillies have signed left-handed starting pitcher John Lannan to a one-year contract with a base salary of $2.5 million, as reported by Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia. Sources: Phillies have agreement with LHP John Lannan, pending a physical. Busy weekend for Phils, who also have agreement w RHP Mike Adams — Jim Salisbury (@JSalisburyCSN) December 15, 2012 Lannan’s new deal with the Phillies includes up to $2.5 million in additional performance bonuses, which means the left-hander has the potential to earn $5 million in 2013, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The Phillies entered the offseason with a starting five intact for the 2013 campaign. However, Philadelphia sent Vance Worley and prospect Trevor May to the Minnesota Twins in order to acquire center fielder Ben Revere. The absence of Worley left a void in the Phillies starting rotation, and it was reported that they were targeting a low-risk, high-reward-type arm to fill it. With the former Washington Nationals starter in the fold the Phillies have a projected rotation for 2013 that includes Lannan, Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and Kyle Kendrick. Lannan spent most of last season pitching at the minor league level and struggled when he did. He was able to post an ERA of 4.13 over six starts for the Nationals, but overall it was a down year for the 28-year-old. Over six seasons pitching against National League East clubs as a member of the Nationals Lannan posted an ERA and WHIP of 4.01 and 1.424 with 4.7 strikeouts and 3.4 walks per nine innings.
