Third base option off the board: Logan Forsythe traded to Rays


The Padres have traded utility man Logan Forsythe to the Rays in a seven-player trade involving a whole bunch of minor leaguers you’ve probably never heard of. Lefty Alex Torres, who was dominant in relief last season, is the key piece going back to San Diego.

The Yankees spoke to the Padres about their extra infielders earlier this offseason and Forsythe was viewed as the most realistic trade target. I wrote more about him right here. Not a huge missed opportunity for the Yankees, but Forsythe probably would have jumped to the front of the line for their third base opening.

    Bit late on this one haha.

    This is no loss, there’s absolutely no reason to give up anything of value from the farm for a guy who’s best used as the right hand of a platoon. Go get Jeff Baker and just be done with it already.

    On a day in which they signed Tanaka, I can deal with losing Forsythe. However, with his on base potential, he could have been a longer term possibility at 2B.

    Didn’t Logan Forsythe star in ‘Dynasty” ?

    • Macho Man “Randy Levine”

      No, that was Charlie Forsythe.

      Oh, by the way, Cashman failed.

        Cashman failed by not trading for Charlie Forsythe
