Logan’s 2009 splits against lefties definitely shows potential for him to replace Phil Coke as the Yankee lefty specialist.

Mike Dunn: Dunn, a 24 year old left handed pitcher, played his college ball at Austin Peay, signed with the Yankees as an outfielder in 2004. The Yankees converted him to a pitcher and he has steadily moved up through the minors. Dunn is viewed as a solid power pitcher. He has a fastball that has touched 97-98 and a nasty power slider. While Dunn is a strikeout pitcher, he has struggled with his control. Scouts view this as a correctable problem, however, as it does not appear to be a mechanical issue so much as him getting too pumped up and overthrowing the ball. Dunn had a good 2009, starting in Trenton before moving up to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and making his major league debut on September 4. The Braves have picked up a major league ready arm who, with some work, could be a good asset for them in 2010.
Brian Cashman made a good move yesterday, giving the Yankees one of the best starting rotations in baseball and putting them in a position to defend their World Series title in 2010. Still, Atlanta did not walk away with nothing. They got an average major league outfielder with Melky Cabrera and a couple young arms with some good potential.
