Boone Logan (born August 13, 1984) is a left-handed relief pitcher in Major League Baseball for the New York Yankees. Logan previously played for the Chicago White Sox from 2006–2008 and the Atlanta Braves in 2009.
Early life 
Playing career 
Chicago White Sox 
He was selected in the 20th round of the 2002 Major League Baseball Draft by the Chicago White Sox. He became a local sports news story after advancing from the Sox's Rookie League affiliate, the Great Falls White Sox, straight to the major league club during spring training in 2006.
Atlanta Braves 
On December 4, 2008, Logan was traded, along with Javier Vázquez, to the Atlanta Braves for minor league catcher Tyler Flowers, shortstop Brent Lillibridge, third baseman Jon Gilmore and pitcher Santos Rodriguez.
New York Yankees 
On December 22, 2009, Logan was once again traded along with Javier Vázquez, this time to the New York Yankees for Melky Cabrera, and prospects Michael Dunn and Arodys Vizcaino. On April 16, 2010 Logan was called up by the Yankees to replace Chan Ho Park in the Yankee bullpen.
Pitching style 
Logan throws with a sidearm delivery, making him appealing as a left-handed specialist. Left-handed hitters have batted only .247 against him in his career, while righties have hit .311. Logan is especially tough against lefties because his primary pitch is a slider in the low 80s that breaks sharply away from them. This is his favorite pitch to throw in two-strike counts. He also has a four-seam fastball and two-seam fastball that appear in the 92-95 mph range. Logan also throws a high-80s changeup from time to time against right-handers.
