Boone Logan set for rehab assignment

Boone Logan’s three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Rockies started on the disabled list with an elbow injury, but the left-hander has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that Logan threw 21 pitches “without issue” Monday and is slated to make a pair of appearances at Triple-A beginning Wednesday, setting him up to join the Rockies’ active roster as soon as this weekend.

Colorado paying $5.5 million per season for three years to get Logan as a left-handed specialist was one of the odder signings of the offseason, although he was certainly very effective in that role for the Yankees.

Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports that Orioles third baseman Tim Beckham underwent core muscle surgery in Philadelphia on Thursday and is expected to miss the next six to seven weeks.

Beckham, 28, was originally diagnosed with a strained left groin. He sustained the injury during spring training and reaggravated it on Monday against the Indians.

Beckham was off to a slow start, batting .179/.247/.262 in 93 plate appearances. Danny Valencia and Jace Peterson should handle the hot corner while Beckham is out.
