Lefty John Lannan has latched on with the Rockies on a minor league deal, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Lannan is one of a handful of players signed to minor league deals by the Rockies today, joining Brett Marshall, Justin Miller, and Jose Ortega.

Lannan, 30, spent most of the 2014 season in the Mets’ minor league system after starting the season in their bullpen. In 56 innings between Single-A St. Lucie and Triple-A Las Vegas, Lannan posted a 6.75 ERA with a 30/21 K/BB ratio. He suffered a quad injury and tore the patellar tendon in his left knee in 2013, when he was with the Phillies.
