Boone Logan‘s three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Rockies started on the disabled list with an elbow injury, but the left-hander has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment.
Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Logan threw 21 pitches “without issue” Monday and is slated to make a pair of appearances at Triple-A beginning Wednesday, setting him up to join the Rockies’ active roster as soon as this weekend.
Colorado paying $5.5 million per season for three years to get Logan as a left-handed specialist was one of the odder signings of the offseason, although he was certainly very effective in that role for the Yankees.
