Logan gives Rockies second late-game left-hander


DENVER -- The Rockies finally get to see what they have in left-hander Boone Logan, their three-year, $16.5 million free-agent signing.

Logan underwent offseason surgery to clean out bone chips and shave a bone spur in his throwing elbow, and on Monday was activated from the 15-day disabled list.

"I feel relieved that the wait is over and if, God willing, I stay healthy and keep building up my arm strength throughout the course of the season and not have any more setbacks and help my team win," Logan said.

The bullpen had some rough moments as the team lost three of four in Miami, but pitched well while winning two of three against the D-backs. Now, manager Walt Weiss has two late-game power left-handers -- Logan and Rex Brothers.

"It started out a little rough, but they got their feet wet, and this homestand they've been playing lights out so far," Logan said. "I hope I can jump right in the middle of that and ride the wave with them."
