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.
