The Brewers released Logan on Monday.
After booting Logan off the 40-man roster June 19, the Brewers were unable to find a trade partner for the lefty, nor was another team willing to pick up the remainder of his one-year, $2.5 million contract via a waiver claim. The Brewers apparently weren't able to convince Logan to accept a minor-league assignment, so the 34-year-old will look to find work elsewhere. Despite his unsightly 5.91 ERA and 2.34 WHIP in 10.2 innings with Milwaukee this season, Logan's long track record of reliability as a LOOGY could be enough to gin up interest from clubs now that he's officially a free agent.
Logan was designated for assignment Tuesday.
The veteran lefty didn't have much success for the Brewers this season, stumbling to a 5.91 ERA in 10.2 innings. Most of his issues were control-related, as he walked 17.2 percent of the batters he faced. He was removed from the roster to make room for Tuesday's starter, Freddy Peralta.
Logan allowed an earned run in 0.2 innings Sunday but also picked up the win in the Brewers' victory over the Mets.
Logan's win was his first since joining the Brewers during the offseason. Typically stingy against left-handed hitters, he has allowed lefties to post a 1.244 OPS over 17 plate appearances against him this year. The good news is righty hitters have posted just a .651 OPS over 15 PA. He is working in middle relief and figures to get opportunities to turn around his stats against lefties -- they did combine for just a .191 batting average (43-for-225) against him over the last three years, after all.
Logan (triceps) was activated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Thursday's game in Colorado.
Logan appeared in six rehab outings over the past couple weeks and looks to make his 2018 debut in the coming days after suffering a slight triceps strain near the end of spring training. Over 38 appearances with the Indians last season, Logan posted a 4.71 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with a 28:9 K:BB over 21 innings. Expect him to be utilized against left-handers as a late-inning situational reliever.
Logan (triceps) has traveled to Denver in advance of the Brewers' four-game series with the Rockies and will be activated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday or Friday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Logan made his sixth and final rehab appearance Tuesday for Triple-A Colorado Springs, striking out three of the four batters he faced. The Brewers' decision on bringing back Logan ahead of the series opener or Friday will likely hinge on how heavily the bullpen is used during Wednesday's game against the Indians. Once Logan is officially added to the active roster, he'll likely be used mostly in a situational capacity as a LOOGY.
Logan (triceps) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs and is scheduled to make an appearance for the club Tuesday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Logan came out of back-to-back relief outings Friday and Saturday at Double-A Biloxi no worse for wear, so he'll move up a rung on the minor-league ladder. Brewers manager Craig Counsell suggested Logan would likely be activated from the 10-day disabled list by the end of the upcoming week, but it's uncertain if the southpaw will need to make one or two appearances at Colorado Springs before the activation happens. Whenever he's formally added to the 25-man roster, Logan will give the Brewers another quality lefty bullpen option to complement Dan Jennings.
Logan (triceps) may return as soon as Tuesday against the Indians, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The lefty is expected to pitch in back-to-back games in his next two outings, which is the last hurdle to clear in his rehab program. If all goes well, he could return as soon as Tuesday, though the team hasn't explicitly stated a target return date yet.
Logan (triceps) tossed a clean frame and struck out two batters in a rehab game with Double-A Biloxi on Wednesday.
Logan has now thrown three times for Biloxi; and although he allowed three earned runs without recording an out his second time out, Wednesday's appearance essentially puts him back on track. It's not clear how many more times he will throw in the minors, but he is on the verge of being ready to join the Brewers for the first time this season.
Logan (triceps) was officially sent on a rehab assignment with Double-A Biloxi on Friday.
It's currently unclear how long the veteran lefty will remain with the Shuckers on his rehab assignment. Nonetheless, Logan seems to be on track to return to the Brewers' bullpen in early May.
Logan (triceps) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Biloxi later in the week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Logan, who has been sidelined all season with a triceps strain, has been cleared to return to game action after getting through a simulated game with no issues Tuesday. It's unclear how many rehab appearances Logan will need to make before being activated, but he's slowly inching closer to his 2018 big-league debut.
Logan (triceps) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Logan was pleased with how his bullpen went Wednesday, so he'll ramp things up in what will be his second bullpen session since landing on the disabled list with a triceps injury. He remains without a timetable for his return, but he's likely still a few weeks away from rejoining the Brewers.
Logan (triceps) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, his first since suffering a triceps strain late in spring training, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Logan is likely still a few weeks away from returning to major-league action. When he gets back to Milwaukee, he'll join a bullpen in quite a bit of turmoil, as Corey Knebel (hamstring) is out for another month and no other reliever has stepped up to claim the job. With just three saves and a 4.47 ERA in his 12-year major-league career, however, Logan would be an unlikely candidate to move into a temporary closing role. He's far more likely to be used as a situational lefty.
Logan (triceps) is expected to throw a bullpen session within the coming days, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It had been reported that Logan was expected to begin throwing from the mound earlier in the month. However, the Brewers decided to err on the side of caution and had the southpaw participate in a long toss program for a bit longer before sending him to the hill. Once Logan begins throwing bullpen sessions, a timeframe for his eventual return should begin to take shape.
Logan (triceps) is hoping to resume mound work by the end of next week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Logan is working his way back from a triceps strain he suffered late in camp. Barring any setbacks, he's still expected to return sometime during the first half of May. In the meantime, Josh Hader and Dan Jennings will work as the primary southpaws out of Milwaukee's bullpen.
Logan (triceps) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday.
This is simply procedural, as the Brewers already confirmed Logan would open the season on the disabled list after suffering a triceps strain late in camp. The hope is that he'll be ready to return after about six weeks on the shelf, which would line him up for activation in early May. Josh Hader will work as the Brewers' lone lefty in the bullpen until Logan is healthy.
Logan (triceps) is expected to miss about six weeks, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The team had already confirmed that Logan would start the year on the DL, and now the team is preparing for his absence to extend into May after tests revealed the full extent of the injury. This will likely result in the Brewers breaking camp with a lone lefty in the bullpen (Josh Hader), as all of the other relievers remaining in camp are right-handers (including the non-roster invitees).
Manager Craig Counsell said that Logan (triceps) will begin the season on the disabled list, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Counsell went on to state that Logan will be reevaluated by more doctors in the coming days in order to come up with a timetable for his return. The left-hander exited Wednesday's game after tossing just a couple pitches and it was determined that he suffered a slight triceps strain after undergoing an MRI. More should be known regarding a timetable within the next few days.
Logan's MRI revealed a slight triceps strain, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Logan stated that it's just a minor injury, though the club has yet to give him any sort of timetable for a return. The left-hander doesn't expect to know more until the Brewers get to Houston for the last two Cactus League games next week. With Opening Day just one week away, there's a real possibility that Logan will wind up on the disabled list to begin the season. Expect an update on his status early next week.
Manager Craig Counsell said Logan is dealing with shoulder and triceps discomfort, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Logan picked up the injury during Wednesday's spring game. The severity of the issue remains unclear at this point, but more should be known in the coming days as he undergoes further tests. Given how close it is to Opening Day, there's a possibility Logan opens the year on the shelf.
Logan exited Wednesday's spring game due to an apparent injury, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It wasn't clear as to what the issue was or how severe it was. More information should emerge once he's examined fully by the team training staff. Given how close Opening Day is, any kind of injury jeopardizes a player's availability for the season opener.
