Busy few hours for Ruben Amaro Jr. and Co., as this comes out just hours after the KRISTV report of the Mike Adams' signing (which multiple outlets have since confirmed). Lannan spent each of his first six major league seasons with the Nationals, compiling a 42-52 record and a 4.47 ERA. All of his 134 career appearances have been starts.
In 19 career outings against the Phils, he was a putrid 3-13 with a 5.53 ERA, but you might best remember him for throwing a pitch that broke Chase Utley's right hand in July of 2007. Click here for Beerleaguer's post from that incident.
Exact details of the signing have yet to come out but it is pending a physical, according to Salisbury. ESPN's Jayson Stark reports, via Twitter, that it's a one-year deal. We figured the Phillies would go after someone like this after trading Vance Worley last week. He's no Vanimal but what are your thoughts on this signing?
