Dr. Andrews to examine Logan's left elbow

MLB.com

BOSTON -- The Yankees have sent left-hander Boone Logan to see Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., and there is a chance that the reliever's season is over.

Logan has not pitched since Sept. 6 due to discomfort in his left elbow. He has attempted to resume throwing but seems to be no closer to getting back on the mound.

"He actually played catch yesterday, and he played better catch," manager Joe Girardi said. "But just to reassure everything's OK, we sent him there."

At Logan's request, the Yankees sent his MRI results to be reviewed by Andrews last week.

General manager Brian Cashman also signed free agent left-hander Mike Zagurski in response to Logan's continued issues. Zagurski has yet to appear in a game, and Girardi has been using left-hander Cesar Cabral in spots that normally would have gone to Logan.
