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.

Logan indicated that while he's still experiencing a little bit of stiffness in his elbow, he's close to 100 percent healthy heading into spring training, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.General manager Jeff Bridich suggested about a month earlier that Logan was fully healthy following September surgery to remove a bone spur, but it looks like he could be limited in a few drills in the first couple weeks of spring training. It would likely be mostly out of precautionary purposes than anything, as the Rockies certainly aren't of mind to rush Logan back to the mound after arm injuries torpedoed his first season in Denver. The lefty still has two years remaining on his lucrative three-year, $16.6 million deal, and the Rockies are hoping that with better health in 2015, he'll reemerge as a key setup man for closer LaTroy Hawkins.

General manager Jeff Bridich indicated Logan (elbow) is completely healthy, the Denver Post reports.
Logan underwent elbow surgery in September to remove a small bone spur in his left elbow, but appears to be fully recovered. He's in the second year of a three-year deal, and will look for better results than he had in 2014, when he struggled through 35 games, posting a 6.84 ERA and 1.68 WHIP with 32 strikeouts through 25 innings.

Logan (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list Monday.
Logan underwent a minor surgery to remove a bone spur in his left elbow in September, but had to be removed from the disabled list as the designation becomes void in the offseason. He should enter the 2015 season healthy after struggling through 25 innings with the Rockies last season, allowing 19 earned runs on 31 hits and 11 walks. His strikeout rate was encouraging, however, with 32 over the 25 inning span.

Logan (elbow) had surgery Thursday to remove a small bone spur in his left elbow.
It was first reported that Logan wouldn't need surgery to fix his elbow, but it appears he decided to undergo a minor procedure anyway. Either way, he is out for the remainder of the season and will start working towards the beginning of next season.

Logan will not require surgery in the offseason to correct his ailing elbow, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.
Though Logan spent three different stints on the DL as a result of elbow concerns, team trainer Keith Dugger is confident that the lefty is simply dealing with an inflammation issue. Unlike this season, he figures to enter 2015 healthy, but he'll have a lot to prove after delivering a woeful 6.84 ERA over 25 innings, in the first year of three-year, $16.5 million pact.
