Mets News: John Lannan could be sent down with his consent


Mets News:


According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, "Since John Lannan already has more than five years of MLB service. And that normally would mean Lannan cannot be sent to the minors without his consent. But before Lannan was added to the Opening Day roster, the Mets had  Lannan sign an "advance consent" waiver. That means Lannan preauthorized the Mets to send him to the minors at any point during the first 45 days of the season -- which also would negate receiving his full $1.5 million big-league salary, which otherwise would have been guaranteed."

He may be seeing the minor league pastures soon as his relief woes continue...as Adam Rubin describes it..

Lannan has been converted to relief for the first time in his career this season, has struggled in the role.

Lannan now has allowed four runs, four hits and a walk while recording only three outs this season. He allowed a Freddie Freeman single Wednesday Night in the 4-3 Loss, It was his only batter he faced... His ERA is now 36.00
