Rockies activate Boone Logan from disabled list, send Corey Dickerson down to minors

The Rockies announced this evening that left-hander Boone Logan has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding roster move, outfielder Corey Dickerson was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Logan was brought along slowly this spring following arthroscopic surgery on his elbow, but he made it through two minor league rehab outings with no issues. Signed to a three-year, $16.5 million deal over the winter, the 29-year-old lefty specialist has compiled a 3.38 ERA and 202 strikeouts in 176 innings over the past four seasons.

Dickerson made the Opening Day roster with the Rockies, but at-bats have been hard to come by in the early going, especially with Charlie Blackmon off to a red-hot start. However, the 24-year-old is mighty talented and should get another opportunity soon.

    Hard to believe this crappy team can’t find a better use for this guy other than to let him waste away in in the minors. Trade him for pitching if you’d rather give his at-bats to Drew Stubbs.

      I agree that Drew Stubbs should have gone instead of Dickerson, but it comes down to options. Dickerson has more and needs consistent AB’s at this point in his career anyways. Plus, Charlie Blackmon is the one actually getting the AB’s and for good reason, he is on a ridiculous tear.

        yeah, I get it, but…seriously..Charlie Blackmon? *He’s* supposed to be the answer for the Rockies because he went 9-10 over 2 games? He walked 7 times last year and has very little power or speed. The very definition of a pinch-hitting 4th or 5th outfielder.
