John Lannan: Placed On DL Staff

Update: Lannan was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday with a strained ligament in his left knee, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Recommendation: Lannan was roughed up for six runs in 1.2 innings on Wednesday and the knee was a significant factor in the outing. No corresponding move has been announced as of yet but someone will take his turn in the rotation. His time frame for return is still uncertain but will not be eligible for at least the 15-day minimum.
