TAMPA, Fla. -- Yankees left-hander Boone Logan said his arm felt great after pitching batting practice on a back field Saturday. The reliever hopes the next step in his recovery from elbow soreness is to face batters wearing a different uniform.

"I don't see myself needing to do another session. I'd just rather go in a game and start from there," said Logan, whose previous activity had been on flat ground and off bullpen mounds.

Though enthusiastic about his progress, he is not completely comfortable.

"I do feel it every day. It's just like a little inflammation still, but it's normal," Logan said. "I'm strong. My arm feels good. I'm real excited about how it feels right now. It's getting better every day. I don't feel it nearly as much as I did a week ago."

His bottom line?

"I feel worthless when I'm not pitching."
