Boone Logan RP COL 1 week ago

Logan induced a ground ball out from Adrian Gonzalez during his one pitch against the Dodgers on Friday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 31-year-old left-hander has had a solid start to his 2016 campaign, allowing three earned runs while striking out eight through 7.1 innings. Besides a rough game against the Padres, Logan has been exceptional, limiting opposing batters to a .148 average with a 0.95 WHIP in nine appearances this year. Logan has kept the ball on the ground which has contributed to his .211 BABIP, and with a solid strikeout rate, he should be in line for a bigger role with the Rockies this season.

Logan (elbow) pitched a clean inning with a strikeout Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The left-hander made his spring debut Saturday and appeared to be healthy, but this seems to confirm that Logan will be good going forward. He's scheduled to pitch again Thursday following the Rockies' off-day and should be ready to go when Opening Day rolls around.

Logan (elbow) made his Cactus League debut Saturday, giving up a run and one one hit to go with two wild pitches in two-thirds of an inning.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The outing was shaky, but the good news is that Logan still feels good after throwing 17 pitches in the game. He is slated to pitch again Sunday, so if that outing goes well, there's a good chance that he could be ready for Opening Day.

Logan (elbow) is set to make his Cactus League debut after pitching in a "B" game Thursday, Mike Cranston of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Logan has been out of commission since experiencing soreness in his elbow earlier in spring training. The Rockies have been taking the cautious approach with the left-hander given his history of elbow issues, so Logan must be doing much better if they trust him enough to have him pitch Saturday. As long as all goes well, he should be in shape to appear in Sunday's game as well in order to be ready in time for Opening Day.

Logan hasn't pitched in spring training yet due to a sore left elbow, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Elbow injuries have been the bane of Logan's existence over the past few years, but the left-hander insists that there is no structural damage and that this issue is very minor. He said that he simply pitched "a little quick, a little too soon" when spring training began. Logan threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday and felt good following the outing. "I definitely think I can be ready [for Opening Day]," he said. As long as he progresses properly, he should enter the regular season as the main lefty in the Colorado bullpen, but he'll have to improve upon his 4.33 ERA and 4.3 BB/9 to be effective.

Logan (elbow) was activated from the DL on Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Logan appeared to be ready to return late last week, but the Rockies opted to wait until Tuesday's roster expansion in order to avoid a corresponding move. Logan has been less-than-stellar this season, posting a 4.75 ERA in 48 games while allowing righties to hit .338 against him.

Logan (elbow) resumed throwing before Tuesday's game, the Associated Press reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Logan is eligible to return from the disabled list Thursday, but the Rockies may opt to just wait until Sept. 1 to bring him back so that a corresponding roster move isn't necessary. The lefty reliever hasn't thrived in any capacity this season, allowing a .375 on-base percentage to same-handed hitters, while righty bats have combined to produce a .937 OPS against him.

Logan picked up his 13th hold of the season in Friday's win over the the Giants after recording one out to end the eighth inning.

Manager Walt Weiss called on the southpaw from the bullpen to retire the lefty-hitting Brandon Belt, and Logan made quick work of the Giants first baseman, tossing four pitches before generating a groundout. Weiss' typical judicious usage of Logan has allowed him to make a team-leading 31 appearances despite covering only 22.1 innings, but the more favorable matchups the reliever has faced hasn't helped his overall numbers. He owns an inexcusable 5.24 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season.

Logan gave up two runs on three hits and walk while recording just one out in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Phillies.

The two runs allowed the Phillies to tie the game in the top of the eighth before Nick Hundley bailed Logan out with a solo homer for the Rockies in the bottom half of the inning. Though he's been able to stay healthy after a disastrous first season in Colorado, Logan's performance has suffered in Year 2 due in large part to a .421 BABIP that has inflated his ERA to 5.79. His strikeout (12.1 K/9) and walk (3.8 K/9 rates) remain relatively consistent with what he's shown in the past, so there's a good chance the ERA will show some improvement over time.

Logan picked up his fourth hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Giants.

Logan surrendered a solo homer to Matt Duffy that cut the Giants' deficit to two, but he managed to extinguish any rally by generating a strikeout and fielder's choice groundout to finish off the eighth inning. After his first season was marred by injury, Logan looks healthy and effective thus far for the Rockies, posting a 1.80 ERA and 6:1 K:BB ratio over five innings.
