CLEVELAND – Indians lefthander Boone Logan will miss significant time after being placed on the 10-day disabled list because of a strained muscle in his back, manager Terry Francona said Friday.
Logan fell and grabbed his left shoulder after throwing a pitch Thursday against San Francisco. He was examined by a team trainer and walked to the dugout with a lat muscle injury.
"He's going to be down for a while," Francona said of Logan, who is 1-0 with a 4.71 ERA in 38 appearances.
Lefthander Tyler Olson was recalled from Class AAA Columbus to take Logan's roster spot.
The injury is the latest to hit Cleveland's pitching staff. Righthander Corey Kluber is expected to start Sunday against Toronto after his scheduled outing Friday was pushed back because of a stiff neck.
Danny Salazar, who hasn't pitched since June 3 because of a sore right shoulder, will be activated from the DL and will start Saturday. He's 3-5 with a 5.40 ERA in 12 games (10 starts). Right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall (strained calf) and second baseman Jason Kipnis (strained hamstring) have begun baseball activities but are still weeks from returning, Francona said.
