The Colorado Rockies made a couple roster moves today that involved left handed relief pitcher Boone Logan.
Logan and the Rockies were able to agree on a three year, $16.5 million deal over the Winter as he underwent surgery to remove some bone chips from his elbow. He wasn’t expected to be rushed to be ready for Opening Day, but Logan is ready to make his Rockies debut after departing from the New York Yankees during the offseason.
The 29 year old left handed reliever worked through 39 innings with the Yankees and finished the year with a 5-2 record, 1.18 WHIP and a 3.23 ERA.
So now that Boone is ready to pitch out of the bullpen, the Rockies made a move to clear room for him on the roster. Outfielder Corey Dickerson was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs according to Patrick Saunders on Twitter. Dickerson is a very talented player, so he’ll provide the Rockies with some solid depth down on the farm.
As expected #Rockies Corey Dickerson will be optioned to AAA to make room for LHP Boone Logan

Dickerson will find himself with the Major League team later on this year.
