NEW YORK -- Pitcher John Lannan and infielder Omar Quintanilla have agreed to minor league contracts with the New York Mets.

A 29-year-old left-hander, Lannan is expected to compete for the fifth starter's job at spring training. He was 3-6 with a 5.33 ERA last year in 14 starts for Philadelphia. He was sidelined from April 17 to June 17 by a strained tendon in his left knee and didn't pitch after Aug. 14 because of chronic tendinitis that needed surgery.

Lannan, who was born in Long Beach, N.Y., and attended Chaminade High School in Mineola, has a 45-58 record and a 4.12 ERA in seven big league seasons.

The 32-year-old Quintanilla hit .222 with two homers and 21 RBIs last year for the Mets, making 89 starts at shortstop.

New York also settled its arbitration case with right-hander Dillon Gee, agreeing to a one-year contract worth $3,625,000 -- the midpoint between the $4.05 million he had requested and the $3.2 million he had been offered Friday.

First baseman-outfielder Lucas Duda is the last Mets player remaining in arbitration.
