RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Nook Logan.
Logan's 2007 looked very much like his 2005 in Detroit, as he stole bases at a very good rate but was unable to get on base often enough to take full advantage of his speed. The addition of Lastings Milledge to the Nationals' roster sealed his fate in Washington and Logan was non-tendered a contract for 2008. Don't expect much from him elsewhere, given his failed attempts at being a useful everyday player in the past.
Logan became the 318th (or thereabouts) center fielder for the Nationals in 2006 and actually didn't disappoint, hitting .300 through 27 games and playing solid defense. He wasn't able to use his speed on the base paths, stealing just two bases in three attempts, but new manager Manny Acta will probably give him more of a green light provided he gets on base enough to take advantage of it. Barring an offseason acquisition Logan will enter spring training with the CF job to lose but the position has been a revolving door since the club moved to Washington, and Logan's track record doesn't inspire much faith that he'll be the one to stop it.
Logan's speed had Tigers officials drooling but they failed to notice he struggles to get on base. New manager Jim Leyland has already indicated Logan will have a role in 2006 but how big of one remains to be seen. Even as a reserve, Logan has the speed to provide value but because of his poor approach at the plate he's unlikely to earn a full-time role.
Logan was called up from Triple-A on several occasions in 2004 and actually had a better batting average in the majors than he did in the minors. He has great speed and a good shot to be on Detroit's 40-man roster coming out of spring training, but his lack of power and patience at the plate mean he won't contribute much to fantasy squads this season.
Logan was the same player in Double-A (good speed, not very patient, no power) in 2003 that he was in high Single-A the year before. Until Logan can increase his walk rate, he's nothing more than Jason Tyner-lite.
Speed is Logan's game, as he stole 55 bases in high-A ball last summer. He hit just .269, only hit two home runs in 490 at-bats, and wasn't particularly patient at the plate (39 walks, with 104 strikeouts). Logan, 23, should start this year at Double-A.
