The Red Sox' chances of acquiring left-handed starter John Lannan may have decreased Thursday, and not because of anything they -- or Lannan -- did.
Lannan is available because Washington has a full stable of starters. But the Nationals' stable may have gotten a little thinner when Chien-Ming Wang suffered a left hamstring strain in his exhibition start against the Yankees and had to leave the game.
With their depth now in question, it's possible the Nats will take Lannan off the market.
