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.
