BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Logan wasn’t necessarily the Yankees’ most effective southpaw—Rapada held lefties to a more anemic line—but he was by far the most trusted and frequently deployed one, not to mention the one who wasn’t a complete liability against righties. Deprived of Pedro Feliciano’s services, Girardi simply forced Logan to fill the same role, summoning him a league-leading 80 times. Logan still walks too many batters, but over the past two seasons, he’s altered his performance in other ways, dramatically increasing his slider use at the expense of his sinker and four-seamer, and becoming one of just a handful of pitchers who throw the pitch more than 50 percent of the time. Fewer sinkers means fewer groundballs, but more sliders means more strikeouts, and so far, the trade-off seems to be working well.
2012 Someday there will be a children's book called, "Logan, the Counterproductive LOOGY," in which our youngsters learn to judge a pitcher by his worth instead of the arm with which he throws. The Yankees had planned for their primary southpaw reliever to be Pedro Feliciano, and, if they were lucky, Damaso Marte might ride back from labrum surgery in the second half. Instead, for the second year in a row Logan was the last lefty standing. He had a truly perplexing season: though he had career bests in both strikeout and walk rate, the left-handed hitters against whom Logan is supposed to excel swatted .260/.329/.462 against him (he held right-handers to a homerless .262/.328/.344, but this was a small-sample fluke—normally, they kill him). The average AL left-handed hitter batted only .248/.312/.363 against same-side pitchers, so if anyone benefited when Girardi called Logan into the game for some lefty-on-lefty action, it wasn't the Yankees. Brian Cashman has tried to reduce his team's dependence on Logan before, and ere long he'll have to try again.
2011 Acquired from the Braves in the Javier Vazquez deal, Logan was up and down until Damaso Marte was lost for the season, after which he became the team’s sole bullpen southpaw. He was surprisingly effective. Whereas in 2008 he had allowed lefties to hit .291/.324/.505 in 110 plate appearances, this time around he held them to .190/.286/.215. Beginning in late July, he reeled off 24 consecutive scoreless appearances. This is less impressive than it sounds. Because Logan is, appropriately, a spot-lefty—right-handed hitters own .325/.402/.516 career averages against him—the streak was comprised of all of 14.2 innings. The LOOGY’s life is full of small samples, so take that stretch with a grain of salt; Logan has never been consistent and was still troublingly wild last season.
2010 Acquired from the White Sox with Javier Vazquez, Boone was back in Triple-A to begin the year after a rough spring. When he got back to the majors in late June, Bobby Cox used him sparingly, not that his performance warranted much in the way of trust. The loss of Mike Gonzalez should move Logan up a slot on the totem pole, and he still has significant potential, as 6-foot-5 lefties with his kind of velocity are rare. If he can ever find more consistency with his slider and fastball command, he could be very good, but a sizable number of pitchers you can say that about end up being counted among the community of the disappointed.
2009 Logan had a great first half last year, boasting a 1.95 ERA, 4.4 K/BB, 20 of 24 inherited baserunners stranded, and holding lefties to a .197/.209/.273 line through July 9. Then it all came crashing down—he had just three scoreless outings out of 12 over the next month as opposing batters hit an even .500 against him (lefties hit .459), producing 24 hits in eight innings. After a brief demotion, his return engagement as a September call-up was no better. In reality, the early-season success was as much of a fluke as the late-season collapse. Logan throws a fastball in the mid-90s, a rare thing coming from a lefty, but that’s all he offers, so hitters can sit on the heater. Flipped to Atlanta in the Javier Vazquez deal, it’s now up to Roger McDowell and the Braves to teach him a second pitch.
2008 Like so many of the Sox' projects, Logan can throw in the 90s. That means he's not your standard-issue organizational lefty looking for tenure as a situational specialist. He has some problems with focus, however; he's been asked to make adjustments, but just doesn't seem to apply the lessons in-game. He's also a haphazard fielder and has trouble holding baserunners. Still, he's a big lefty with velocity, and in the absence of any veteran to challenge him for his perch, he's the second southpaw in the pen until the Sox fix Sisquatch.
2007 Perhaps unfairly, Logan`s big league future is staked on the prospect of his becoming a LOOGY--that`s what lefty relievers get asked to do. In 2006, he came up short, as his combined major league and minor league numbers from last year attest: his K/BB ratio was 2.62 against left-handed hitters and 2.68 against righties, and lefties hit him for higher batting and slugging averages. The big disparity between his major and minor league numbers can probably be excused as jitters; it`s not often that a pitcher jumps from the Pioneer League to the bigs in the span of a single winter.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your #1 target as the Phillies' LOOGY, free agent or otherwise?
(Bill Baer from Philly)
Dennys Reyes. Oh wait, nevermind. Scott Eyre still retired? How about the JC Romero from 2007? I think Joe Beimel would be a good fit. I'd also take a flier on Ron Mahay. Realistically, I'd be more comfortable forgoing the idea of a LOOGY and just building a solid overall bullpen. And as iffy as Romero looked last year, he still finished 2nd to Boone Logan in my 2010 LOOGY Awards, which measured the numbers lefty batters produced against a lefty specialist, relative to how those same batters performed against all other lefty pitchers. Maybe bring him back at a bargain price. (Eric Seidman)
