The Rockies have an agreement with left-handed reliever Boone Logan on a three-year deal for more than $16 million, as first reported by Fox Sports' Jon Morosi. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported the deal is worth $16.5 million.

The addition of Logan to the Rockies bullpen -- an offseason priority for the team -- comes two days after Colorado acquired Brett Anderson from the A's. The team also brought back LaTroy Hawkins and has been linked to interest in J.P Howell and Joaquin Benoit.

Logan, 29, was a workhorse for the Yankees appearing in 205 games over the last three seasons. He was 5-2 with a 3.23 ERA last season. He is especially tough against left-handed batters who hit just .221 in 77 at-bats in 2013.
