Colorado Rockies relief pitcher Boone Logan is enjoying one of the best seasons of his career, but he could be on his way out of town before Major League Baseball’s Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline.

Rockies Shopping Logan

Thursday, July 28

On Thursday, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reported the Toronto Blue Jays “have discussed” a possible deal with the Rockies for Logan.

Toronto’s bullpen is in desperate need of a serviceable left-handed arm as the team looks to stay in contention in the American League East. Entering Thursday, the Blue Jays were two games behind the first-place Baltimore Orioles.

Brett Cecil, the only lefty Toronto has, is 0-6 with a 6.00 ERA in 27 appearances this season, and a lack of a lefty specialist could come back to haunt the Blue Jays as August approaches.

Logan could provide a huge boost, as the 31-year-old southpaw has been the best arm in Colorado’s bullpen this season.

He’s recorded a team-best 2.48 ERA to go with 34 strikeouts in 29 innings. He’s been especially stellar as of late, not allowing a run in his last 10 outings.

In contrast, no other Rockies reliever who has appeared in 35-plus games has an ERA lower than 3.86.

Because of that, Morosi forecast on July 19 that Logan would “be among the most talked about bullpen arms across the industry in the coming days.”

Logan’s three-year, $16.5 million deal will expire at the end of the season, per Spotrac, and due to such great interest, it might be best for the Rockies to deal him to get something in return instead of taking their chances in free agency.

That way, Colorado could acquire some pieces to help the team develop into a contender in the National League West, which has been dominated by the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers.
