According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Washington Nationals and John Lannan had their arbitration hearing earlier this afternoon. During these hearings it is typical for each side to receive an hour to present their case for what the player should be paid this upcoming season. A group of three independent arbitrators will then decide between the two figures. Washington submitted a figure of $5 Million while Lannan is seeking $5.7 Million. A decision is expected no later than tomorrow.
Historically, the Nationals have gone to hearings with seven players since 2005, winning 5 of those decisions.
