Yankees left-hander Boone Logan was struck by a line drive off the bat of the Pirates’ Jose Tabata in the seventh inning on Thursday and left the game.

Logan appeared to be hit near his hip or midsection with the liner. He walked slowly after the ball and threw to first base, but too late to retire Tabata. Further details are expected shortly.

The Yankees envisioned Logan as a lock to be in their bullpen, and he could have been the club’s only left-hander with Clay Rapada set to begin the season on the disabled list. The Yankees also are considering carrying left-hander Vidal Nuno, a non-roster invitee, to begin the season.
