MLB News: The Philadelphia Phillies placed pitcher John Lannan on the 15-day disabled list after straining his left quadriceps muscle in his knee. Lannan struggled in three starts this year, going 0-1 with a 6.14 earned run average, primarily due to a rough outing against the Cincinnati Reds.
Fantasy Ramifications: Lannan was a solid, but not so-great fantasy option, but now he is expected to miss 6-8 weeks minimum. His fantasy value is very minimal at best. If you have an injury reserve slot on your roster, feel free to reserve him in hopes of a bright second-half of the season, but if there is a better option waiting on the waiver wires and you don’t have a spot to place Lannan, don’t fret about releasing him.
