PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Phillies pitcher John Lannan has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained quadriceps tendon in his left knee.
The move was made Thursday before Philadelphia hosted the St. Louis Cardinals. Lannan aggravated the injury during an 11-2 loss to Cincinnati on Wednesday, when he gave up six runs and eight hits in 1 2-3 innings. He said he first experienced pain in his knee during his previous start last Friday against the Marlins.
In three games, Lannan is 0-1 with a 6.14 ERA while allowing 16 hits and two walks in 14 2-3 innings.
