DENVER (AP) – A person with knowledge of the situation says reliever Boone Logan has agreed to a three-year, $16.5 million deal with the Colorado Rockies.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal has yet to be announced.
Logan has spent the last four seasons with the New York Yankees. He was 5-2 with a 3.23 ERA in 39 innings last season.
The 29-year Logan was originally drafted in the 20th round by the Chicago White Sox in 2002.
Colorado has been fortifying its bullpen all offseason, signing LaTroy Hawkins to a one-year deal last month. Hawkins is expected to compete with left-hander Rex Brothers for the closer’s role.
