DENVER -- Former New York Yankees reliever Boone Logan has agreed to a three-year, $16.5 million deal with the Colorado Rockies, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal has yet to be announced.
Logan spent the past four seasons with the Yankees. He was 5-2 with a 3.23 ERA in 39 innings last season. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman confirmed Logan will not return to the Bronx.
"He did a great job for us," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said of Logan. "He came in to be the second left-hander and because of injuries to the primary lefty he became out primary lefty and he handled it. He pitched in an exciting environment and responded strongly to it. I wish Boonie the best of luck, they're tough losses overall, but again, the team is changing all the time so it's out job to find replacements."
The 29-year-old Logan was drafted in the 20th round by the Chicago White Sox in 2002.
Colorado has been fortifying its bullpen all offseason, also signing LaTroy Hawkins to a one-year deal last month. Hawkins is expected to compete with left-hander Rex Brothers for the closer's role.
