Logan struggled early in the session but became sharper as it went on, per Harding's account of the event. The Rockies had two batters -- Tim Wheeler and Matt McBride -- face Logan. The right-handed-hitting McBride hit a liner into a gap and the lefty Wheeler launched a home run, but Logan later drew praise from catcher Michael McKenry about his downhill plane and good slider.

Of course, the big question is whether or not Logan will be ready for action prior to the start of the regular season. It looks like there's a good chance of that, as Harding suggests Logan will pitch in a spring training game "soon."
The Rockies signed Logan to a three-year, $16.5 million deal on Dec. 16. The 29-year-old left-hander spent the last four seasons with the Yankees, posting a 3.38 ERA in 176 innings while striking out 10.3 batters per nine innings. He underwent surgery to remove bone chips from his left elbow in October.
