Logan throws with a sidearm delivery, making him appealing as a left-handed specialist. Left-handed hitters have batted only .247 against him in his career, while righties have hit .311. Logan is especially tough against lefties because his primary pitch is a slider in the low 80s that breaks sharply away from them. This is his favorite pitch to throw in two-strike counts. He also has a four-seam fastball and two-seam fastball that appear in the 92-95 mph range. Logan also throws a high-80s changeup from time to time against right-handers.

Famous quotes containing the word style:
“As we approached the log house,... the projecting ends of the logs lapping over each other irregularly several feet at the corners gave it a very rich and picturesque look, far removed from the meanness of weather-boards. It was a very spacious, low building, about eighty feet long, with many large apartments ... a style of architecture not described by Vitruvius, I suspect, though possibly hinted at in the biography of Orpheus.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
