Move to 60-day DL ends Logan's season

DENVER -- It's safe to say left-hander Boone Logan's first season hasn't been anywhere close to what the Rockies had in mind when they signed him to a three-year, $16.5 million contract this past winter. And on Monday, it officially came to an end.

The Rockies transferred Logan to the 60-day disabled list before the series opener against the Giants to make room for infielder Rafael Ynoa on the 40-man roster.

Logan was originally placed on the DL on Wednesday with left elbow inflammation. It was the fourth time he's landed on the DL this season and the third time he's been on the shelf due to continued soreness in his left elbow.

The Rockies decided to sign Logan in December despite him being only a few months removed from a surgery to remove a bone chip and shave down a bone spur in his pitching elbow. Logan missed the first week of the season as he continued to recover from the procedure and never regained his past form from there.

In 25 innings for the Rockies, Logan surrendered 20 runs (19 earned) on 31 hits and 11 walks. He did strike out 32 batters across that span but Logan was scored upon in 12 appearances.
