John Lannan Sent to Minors (Holy Crap)

Woah! Despite Lannans struggles this season(2-5 5.76ERA) this still comes as a surprise given his tenure with the team and the struggles of other starters, namely Luis Atilano. Joel Peralta, who was closing at AAA , was called up to replace Lannan on the roster. I’m just guessing here but maybe Lannans spot in the rotation goes to Miguel Batista, whose been solid in long relief work so far this season. The best options at AAA are Jeff Mandel, Sharion Martis, Matt Chico, and Erik Arensen. In other words the options are not exciting.
