Lukewarm support for Logan

On one hand, Joe Girardi said repeated the Yankees need to get Boone Logan "going." 

On the other, it's not automatic that the struggling left-hander will be brought in to face lefties.

"We have to get him going," Girardi said. "We need for him to pitch well for us like he did last year. He's off to a slow start, but some of our right-handers I'm comfortable having them face lefties too." 

Lefties are now 8-for-22 against Logan this season.

“It’s frustrating because I’m the only lefty in the pen and I need to get my lefties out,” Logan said. “I don’t want anyone to give up on me.”

Said Girardi: "We need him to pitch well for us. Today he comes in and does a nice job in the fifth and then he struggles in the sixth. We do need him to pitch well. Just like all our relievers we need consistency."
