The Long Beach native and left-handed pitcher played for the Washington Nationals for parts of the last six seasons. He has a 42-52 lifetime record.
He spent most of 2012 in the minor leagues, though he went 4-1 while pitching in Washington this year.
Lannan will compete in spring training for a spot in Philadelphia's starting rotation.
