Boone Logan undergoes elbow surgery

Rockies left-hander Boone Logan is done for the season after undergoing surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow.

Logan underwent similar surgery last offseason to remove bone chips from his elbow, yet the Rockies still signed him to a three-year, $16.5 million contract as a free agent.

It’s unclear why the Rockies felt the need to make a sizable three-year commitment to a 30-year-old left-handed specialist coming off surgery, but he posted a 6.84 ERA in the first season of the deal and now they have Logan signed for $5.5 million next season and $6.25 million in 2016.
