Getty Images’s Adam McCalvy reports that the Brewers are expected to finalize the signing of lefty reliever Boone Logan after New Year’s Day.

Logan, 33, spent last season with the Indians, posting a 4.71 ERA with a 28/9 K/BB ratio in 21 innings. He missed most of the second half of the season due to a strained lat muscle.

Though he’s had struggles in recent years, Logan has been a reliable reliever out of the bullpen over parts of 12 seasons. Unsurprisingly, he’s particularly tough on lefties, holding them to an aggregate .672 OPS over his career compared to .846 against right-handed hitters. Logan could be poised for a bounce-back year if the Brewers utilize him properly.
