Logan will not undergo surgery on his pitching shoulder but he is still likely out for the season, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The veteran lefty is already on the 60-day disabled list with a significant shoulder injury, but Logan has opted to not go under the knife at this time. It appears that Logan's 2017 campaign has come to an end, and it's unclear when he'll be ready to pitch again. His absence, coupled with Andrew Miller's injury, leaves Cleveland short on left-handed options out of the bullpen. Tyler Olson should continue to serve as the Indians' lefty specialist until Miller returns.
Logan (lat) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Saturday. This was inevitable after Logan was diagnosed with a torn lat muscle last week. He will be ineligible to return until late September, and it's uncertain if he will be well enough to pitch at all the rest of the way.
Manager Terry Francona said Logan has a torn lat muscle and will miss significant time as he recovers. Logan was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with what was thought to be a strain, but it appears to be a bit more significant following further evaluation. It's a devastating development for the left-handed reliever and indicates he may not be able to return to action this season. Tyler Olson, recalled in a corresponding move, takes his place in the bullpen.
Logan was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a lat strain Friday. The veteran reliever left Wednesday's game and a subsequent MRI revealed the strain, so Logan will take a trip to the DL for the first time this season. Through 38 games this season, the lefty has a 4.71 ERA and 1.38 WHIP, mainly relegating him to a middle-reliever role in the American League's best bullpen (2.87 combined ERA). Tyler Olson was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to take his spot.
Logan left Wednesday's game with a strained lat muscle and a disabled list stint is a strong possibility, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports. Logan will go for an MRI on Thursday to confirm, but it's hard to imagine a lat strain wouldn't at least sideline the lefty for 10 days. Expect this injury to keep him out until mid-August, if not later, with an exact timetable likely coming shortly after the MRI results are in.
