Former Siena Saint John Lannan Makes Triple-A Season Debut

Few former Siena Saint athletes have the professional resume that John Lannan has as a major league starting pitcher. Lannan, the Saints’ single season strikeout record holder and 2005 graduate has been a work horse for the Washington Nationals since making his debut in 2007. Unfrotunately for Lannan, after being named the Opening Day starter for the club the last two seasons, he was unable to secure a spot in the Nats rotation and was designated to triple-A Syracuse last week.

Lannan, who requested a trade from the team last week, made his first start for Syracuse Chiefs, hoping that it would serve as a good audition for interested teams. It was not. Lannan lasted only 2 innings in his debut with the team, surrendering five runs on six hits in a 10-0 to the Scranton/Wilkes Barr Yankees.
Despite his request, The Nationals manager has said that the team has no interest in trading the 27 year old finesse pitcher. There are, however, reports that the Chicago Cubs have expressed interest in a trade.
