Brewers sign Boone Logan to a one-year deal

Leave a comment

As expected, the Brewers have inked left-hander Boone Logan to a one-year, $1.875 million deal, per MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy. The contract comes with a $4.125 million club option and $625,000 buyout for 2019, giving Logan $2.5 million guaranteed in the deal.

Logan, 33, is coming off of an injury-shortened run with the Indians in 2017, during which he logged just 21 innings before he was permanently sidelined with a lat strain. He’s only one season removed from a career-best performance with the Rockies, however, when he turned in a 3.69 ERA, 3.9 BB/9 and 11.1 SO/9 through 46 1/3 innings in 2016. Provided he can bounce back in 2018, he should give the Brewers a solid secondary option in their bullpen alongside fellow lefty reliever Josh Hader.

The club has yet to announce the signing. McCalvy adds that while Logan appears to have passed the requisite physical, the club still has to clear a 40-man roster spot for the reliever.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
