The Indians sign reliever Boone Logan

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Indians have reached a one-year deal with free agent reliever Boone Logan, making an already excellent bullpen even better.

Logan posted a 3.69 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 57/20 K/BB ratio across 46.1 innings last season for the Rockies. No imagine him not pitching in Coors Field. As it was he held left-handed batters to line of .142/.222/.255.

Logan will join Cody Allen, Andrew Miller, Bryan Shaw, and Dan Otero in the Tribe’s bullpen. Not too shabby.

KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.

The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.

A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”

Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
