The Yankees need some help in the bullpen, and while they try to bring Aroldis Chapman back to earth on his rumored $100 Million contract demand, they’ll focus on bolstering the middle of the pen.
Ah, the name Boone Logan sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Well, once upon a time, Logan was part of the Yankees bullpen from 2010 to 2013. Logan then signed a four-year deal with the Colorado Rockies when he became a free agent.
Logan is coming off a strong year in Colorado, pitching to a 3.69 ERA with a 11.1 K/9 and a 3.9 BB/9.
Within the last year, the Yankees traded away Andrew Miller, Chapman and Justin Wilson. So you can understand their need to restock their bullpen. So far, the Yankees only have two (three if Adam Warren loses a starting job) locks for the bullpen: Dellin Betances and Tyler Clippard.
Which is why it might be a good idea to reunite with their former lefty specialist.
