Logan making progress with sore left elbow

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Left-hander Boone Logan threw off of flat ground Sunday before tossing a few pitches in the bullpen, another welcome bit of good news for the Yankees on the injury front.

Logan has been dealing with a sore left elbow but said he only felt typical arm soreness afterward, adding, "I'll take that any day.

"It's too early to get excited, but everything feels good," Logan said. "I don't think it should take long."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Logan is scheduled to pitch in the bullpen a few more times and throw batting practice before they determine what comes next. Girardi said Logan still has enough time to be ready to pitch Opening Day.

"He's going in the right direction," Girardi said.
