New York Yankees: Bullpen might be without Boone

Boone Logan

Just as Spring Training is about to close, Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News tweeted that New York Yankees lefty specialist Boone

Logan showed up at the ballpark today with back problems and was heading to the doctor.

Shortly after, Mark Craig at the Star Ledger confirmed that Logan was sent to get an MRI exam.

Well, this is not great news as Logan was the Yankees best and most experienced option out of the bullpen against left-handed bats.

In his two seasons in pinstripes, the 27-year old Logan has pitched 81 innings, posting a 3.20 ERA, giving up seven homers, while striking out 84 hitters.

The Yankees had one bullpen spot to fill with a righty arm long-man but if Logan’s back is an issue they will need a lefty too and both have to be decided by 5pm today.

Lefty Clay Rapada is having an excellent spring, so he would be almost a guarantee if Logan goes to the DL.

The righty spot was looking to be either Adam Warren, David Phelps and D.J. Mitchell, my guess is that Warren was the favorite but you never know.

Injuries are absolutely the worst, and the Yankees depth in pitching is turning into a God-sent so far with the regular season only two days away.

Let’s just hope Logan’s back isn’t too seriously hurt.
