Rockies Injury Update: Boone Logan undergoes season-ending surgery

By on 9/13/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Colorado Rockies entered a weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a record of 59-87, fourth in the National League West. Although fourth in the Major Leagues in runs scored, the Rockies have been hurt by a staff that is 30th in ERA. On pitcher who has had a rough season is Boone Logan, who is done for the season after surgery on his left elbow.

I reported on September 2 that Logan was transferred to the 60-day disabled list with inflammation in his left elbow. It was the fourth time this season he's been on the disabled list.

An update on Logan, as reported by Aaron Gleeman of Hardball Talk, is that he underwent surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow. Although he had a similar surgery last off season, the Rockies signed him to a three-year contract worth $16.5 million.

Logan, in his ninth Major League season, has struggled to a 6.84 ERA in 35 games this season. The veteran has pitched for the White Sox, Braves, Yankees and Rockies and has a career record of 26-15 with a 4.57 ERA.
