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.

    It looks like the Yankees timing with Logan was perfect.

      Girardi ran that guy into the ground. That’s what happens when you only carry one lefty.

    They have said he won’t just be a specialist they expect him to eat an inning or 2 if needed. He seems like a big upgrade over some other guys they had out there and helps brothers be their out specialist and latroy be their closer
