Mets pitcher John Lannan has accepted his assignment to Triple-A Las Vegas, ESPN’s Adam Rubin reports. Lannan was outrighted on Wednesday to make room for Daisuke Matsuzaka, who was added to the bullpen.

Lannan had an ugly start to the season, allowing seven runs in four innings out of the bullpen. Most recently, he allowed three runs in an inning of work as the Mets were blown out by the Angels on Sunday.

Matsuzaka, meanwhile, was pitching well with Las Vegas, allowing three runs over 12 innings, striking out 12 and walking six.

    The best he could do in the offseason was the minor league deal with the Mets so probably figured it was his best direction to go

    I remember his famous 1970 interview with Rolling Stone, when he said that after the group’s popularity waned, he feared he was going to end up playing in Vegas. Yoko can’t be happy about this.

      Especially not when Wayne Newton outdraws him again.
