News: Logan gave up two runs on three hits and walk while recording just one out in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Phillies.
Impact: The two runs allowed the Phillies to tie the game in the top of the eighth before Nick Hundley bailed Logan out with a solo homer for the Rockies in the bottom half of the inning. Though he's been able to stay healthy after a disastrous first season in Colorado, Logan's performance has suffered in Year 2 due in large part to a .421 BABIP that has inflated his ERA to 5.79. His strikeout (12.1 K/9) and walk (3.8 K/9 rates) rates remain relatively consistent with what he's shown in the past, so there's a good chance the ERA will show some improvement over time.

News: Logan picked up his fourth hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Giants.
Impact: Logan surrendered a solo homer to Matt Duffy that cut the Giants' deficit to two, but he managed to extinguish any rally by generating a strikeout and fielder's choice groundout to finish off the eighth inning. After his first season was marred by injury, Logan looks healthy and effective thus far for the Rockies, posting a 1.80 ERA and 6:1 K:BB over five innings.

News: Logan will open the season as the Rockies' primary eighth-inning setup man, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.
Impact: Manager Walt Weiss made the announcement Saturday, while indicating that John Axford and Adam Ottavino will also be in the mix as late-inning options in front of closer LaTroy Hawkins.
