Spring Training Tradition Field Port St. Lucie

What’s on Tap: Lannan’s final start, Mets on SNY at 1 pm

John Lannan will start for the Mets on Wednesday as they face the Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. ET at Tradition Field.

The game will air live on SNY. It will not be on radio.

Lannan has allowed just one earned run in four innings this spring. However, Terry Collins recently said he will start being considered as a possible second left-handed reliever, since the team sent Josh Edgin and Jack Leathersich to minor-league camp earlier this week.

Really like this BP. Prob gonna be Parnell, Black, Rice, Lannan, Familia, Torres, & Valverde. Much better than last year when we had scrubs like Lyon & Atchison in there

Seems obvious to me Lannan will be the 2nd lefty with Rice. I don't get why Meija would start at AAA unless they want Dice K to make the team then dump him to the pen later as a spot starter? They should be playing kids so Meija.

Off topic a bit but I see the Braves went out and signed Ervin Santana. With Hudson gone and Medlen maybe gone to injury, they go out and fill a need. Nice to have a front office willing and able  to plug holes when they happen.

A second lefthand reliever? That makes to much sense! I must be on the wrong blog.

Should be a good move. He can always start a game now and then later if needed.

Calm down we're winning 90 games with no one playing shortstop or first base... Sandy says so so it must be true!

@Bob Burket  Which is key if you don't truly believe Torres can handle those swingman duties for a full season.  I like the efforts to find a place - any place - for Lannan on the roster.  What baffles me is the Dice-K love....

They're moving him to the bullpen.

@Thomas McKeever Dice-K is not and will never be what everyone thought he was going to be but at the end of the year the last 3-4 starts they tweaked his mechanics and the time he spends between each pitch and he significantly improved. I think it's worth a shot to keep him and see what he can do he is a very cheap option. All though i would love to see mejia in the bigs again he was terrific last year.
