The Colorado Rockies announced Monday afternoon that they have activated left-handed specialist Boone Logan off of the 15-day disabled list after a rehab stint with the Colorado Spring Sky Sox. Logan underwent offseason surgery to remove bone chips and a bone spur from his left elbow. With the activation of Logan, the Rockies had to make a roster move, sending down outfielder Corey Dickerson to the Sky Sox (Triple-A affiliate).
Dickerson didn’t see much action in Colorado’s first seven games, getting just five at-bats going 1-for-5 with two runs scored. He made one start against the Marlins April 3rd, going 1-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored. The move was simple for him, to get more at-bats as he won’t be down there for long. The same goes for shortstop/infielder Josh Rutledge who is currently playing for the Sky Sox.
Logan will be a solid addition to a bullpen that has pitched well in the last couple of games. Last season with the New York Yankees, Logan threw 39.0 innings, giving up 33 hits while striking out 50 batters. He would earn a record of 5-2 with a 3.23 ERA.
