Nationals Aren't Actively Shopping Lannan

Mar 14, 2012 4:09 PM EST

Despite numerous reports to the contrary, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo says the team is not actively shopping John Lannan.

Washington has seven starters to fill five spots heading into the regular season.

"I wouldn't say there's a lot of interest" in Lannan, Rizzo said. "I haven't made any calls. I've fielded several calls. ... But, again, this is way too early to say we have too much starting pitching."

Rizzo said the Nationals have not made an effort to trade Lannan at this point.

"I am not actively shopping him," Rizzo said. "I haven't actively shopped him all year, all winter."
