Former Lee Baseball Standout Logan Workman To Pitch Against Lookouts

  • Wednesday, June 12, 2024
It is homecoming time again for former Lee University Flame and Soddy-Daisy’s Logan Workman. The talented member of the Double-A Montgomery Biscuits is in Chattanooga to face the Lookouts in a six-game series. If all goes as currently scheduled, the hard throwing righthander will take his turn in the pitching rotation on Friday evening.
 
“Last year I had more pressure on myself as it was my first year back pitching at home,” admitted Workman during a conversation before his team departed from Montgomery on Monday.
“I still feel some pressure in some ways but coming into year two, I don't feel it as much. I am back within myself and feel comfortable and more confident each week.” 
 
He battled an injury and missed the early part of last season but is healthy now and looking forward to the pitching appearance. “It will be another great homecoming and it is special to be back with family and friends,” Workman added.
 
The Biscuits are the Double-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays and along with the Lookouts play in the Southern League. “I think this season has gone very well,” he noted about advancing toward his goal of reaching the Majors. “There are always some things to improve on for me to pitch well. Overall, I have been pleased with my progress this year.
 
"We have five starters in our rotation that pitch every sixth day of a six-game series,” he explained. The ex-Flame thrower has been a starter in all 12 of his appearances. He holds a 2-3 record and an earned run average of 3.88 in 58 innings. Over those 58 innings he has struck out 49 batters.
 
To date Workman averages around five innings per game. “We are on a pitch count, not so much (innings per game) but how many pitches we have thrown,” he pointed out. “Each week I continue to push through and work my way up to (pitching in the) 6th and 7th innings. The pitch count usually determines how long I go in each start.”
 
Logan Workman fans, and there are many in the Chattanooga and Tri-State area, will be cheering for another impressive performance on Friday. Like the young hurler they have the same goal in mind, seeing their hometown athlete in a Major League uniform in the next couple of years.
