by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (4/7/2013) Yankees reliever Boone Logan is struggling just a bit to start the 2013 season, according to manager Joe Girardi, reports the Journal News Sunday.
"He’s not in a groove that we’ve seen him get in," Girardi said. "But he’ll get in it. We need to get him going because he’s really important, and being that one left-hander, he’s going to be asked to come into crucial situations at different times. Last year it was more later in the game. But the crucial time could be in the fifth, sixth; we’re going to need him."
Logan has allowed two runs -- one earned -- on four hits and a walk over 1 1/3 innings in three appearances thus far this season. He's yet to strike anyone out with an ERA of 6.75.
