John Lannan set to break camp with Mets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) The Mets have signed veteran right-hander John Lannan to their 40-man roster. It appears he has landed a spot in their bullpen.

Lannan has regressed since a strong 2011 season with Washington in which he compiled a 10-13 record and 3.70 ERA. He bottomed out in Philadelphia last season with a 3-6 record and 5.33 ERA in 14 starts.

John Lannan gives up five runs in spring loss to Marlins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Mets starting pitcher John Lannan might have hurt his chances at earning a spot in the team's rotation with a horrendous outing during a 10-7 loss Monday against the Marlins. The left-handed pitcher allowed five runs on eight hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings, while striking out one.

Lannan (0-2) got hit hard from the beginning Monday. He gave up two runs in the first inning on singles from Garrett Jones and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Lannan managed to escape the second inning without giving up a run after walking the first two batters. However, the Marlins came back with two more runs in the third inning on a Jarrod Saltalamacchia single and added another run in the fourth on a Reed Johnson home run.

Lannan's ERA jumped from 1.13 to 4.76. He had allowed just one earned run in eight innings coming into Monday's start.


John Lannan up to nine strikeouts in eight spring innings

Lannan, who is competing for a spot in the team's rotation, has allowed four runs (one earned) through three appearances (two starts), which has resulted in an 1.13 ERA. He is up to nine strikeouts and hasn't issued a walk in eight innings.


Daisuke Matsuzaka and John Lannan in lead for fifth spot


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Mets pitchers Daisuke Matsuzaka and John Lannan are in the lead for the fifth spot in the team's rotation, according to ESPN. 

Manager Terry Collins was direct with reporters, telling them the decision will come down to the two players. Lannan tossed 74 1/3 innings for the Phillies last season. Matsuzaka started three games with the club last season.

Collins did not include Jenrry Mejia in the conversation, which indicates he may no longer be in competition for a starting spot.


John Lannan tosses two shutout innings against Marlins


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Mets left-hander John Lannan took a positive step Saturday by throwing two scoreless innings against Miami. The lone hit off him was a Derek Dietrich double.

Lannan is battling for the fifth spot in the rotation. He is looking to regain the health and form that allowed him to win 10 games and record a solid 3.70 ERA for Washington in 2011.


Veterans top bet for Mets last rotation spot - but not only bet


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) Terry Collins indicated Friday that he prefers a veteran to man the fifth starting spot for the Mets, per the New York Post. That bodes well for John Lannan and Daisuke Matsuzaka.

If neither steps up, however, promising right-hander Jenrry Mejia is a possibility. Mejia showed his first flashes of major league talent last season, compiling a 2.30 ERA in five starts and fanning 27 in 27 1/3 innings.

"The only option there was to get it fixed," Lannan said, "and for me, it was probably the best thing to do."

Lannan, who will be in camp on a minor-league deal competing for the last spot in the Mets' rotation, said he's fully healthy for the first time in years. He has been throwing off a mound and going through all his regular baseball activities.
