Phillies | John Lannan likely headed to DL

Philadelphia Phillies SP John Lannan (knee) saw a doctor at the Rothman Institute on Thursday, Aug. 15, according to a statement from general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. The pitcher is scheduled for another MRI on Friday, Aug. 16. "It appears that he has similar symptoms to those he experienced earlier this season with tendinitis of the patellar tendon," said Amaro, who added that Lannan is likely headed back to the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: This has been a miserable campaign for the left-hander, who's not even really replacement-level anyway. It's not clear who would replace him, since Jonathan Pettibone (shoulder) hasn't begun a rehab stint yet, but that pitcher probably won't be fantasy worthy. Lannan's season may be over.
