    John Lannan's salary is $5 million, and he started on Opening Day for the Washington Nationals in 2009 and 2010. This season, the left-hander will be at Triple-A Syracuse for Game 1.

    In a completely unexpected move, the Nationals optioned Lannan to the minors and shifted lefty Ross Detwiler from the bullpen to the starting rotation. The decision was announced after Washington's 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, two days before the Nationals begin their season at the Chicago Cubs.
