MLB debut - Boone Logan

The Defending champion Chicago White Sox started the season with two rookies one highly touted - former first rounder and starting center fielder Brian Anderson - and one complete unknown lefty reliever Boone Logan.

Logan was a draft and follow from Temple College, Texas in 2002. The 21 year old has three pro seasons under his belt, all but a couple of weeks at rookie ball. He pitched just 5.1 innings at advanced A ball late in 2005. So, to make the White Sox roster is a huge jump. But, with a WHIP of 0.54 in 13 innings this spring, he did win a job in the Sox bullpen.

In the Sox second game on 4 April against Cleveland, Logan got the call in the 5th inning relieving starter Freddy Garcia with runners on 1st and 2nd, no one out. Logan lasted 2 innings conceding a hit, 2 walks (1 intentional) with 1 strike out. He allowed one of the inherited runners to score, but otherwise kept the Indians off the board though the visitors ran away 8-2 winner.
