RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Forsythe didn't do much in 2012 to get fantasy owners' attention. He only had 350 plate appearances and used them to hit .273/.343/.390 with six homers and eight stolen bases, hardly numbers worth getting excited about. If he were pressed into more playing time, he would likely show that he has good plate discipline and speed that he has yet to showcase. In 2013, he could be a real asset to the Padres and possibly fantasy owners, especially if he were put in a platoon, as he does much better against lefties (career .301/.405/.462), than righties (.219/.285/.309).

2012

Routinely a third baseman in the minors, Forsythe split his time in the majors last year between the hot corner and second base. Given the fact that the Padres are actively looking to trade Orlando Hudson during the winter, Forsythe could begin the spring competing for second base duties this year. He did seem a bit overmatched at times last year posting a slash line of just .219/.281/.287 while his walk rate more than halved from where it was in the minors, but he is normally a high-OBP hitter and is known for his outstanding plate discipline and above-average contact rates.

2011

Forsythe spent 2010 at Double-A San Antonio where he dealt with a broken hand and produced modest numbers. To his credit he stole 17 bases and continued to show good on base skills. At this point, it's almost certain that he won't hit for enough power to be a third baseman, where his glove has played well in the past. At second base, he's going to need to hit for a better average to be of much use to fantasy owners. Look for him to spend 2011 working on his game in the minors, waiting for a callup.

2010

Fresh off a six-week run as the hunky stranger on "Days of Our Lives" -- come on, "Logan Forsythe"? -- another product of the Padres' 2008 draft advanced all the way to Double-A in his first full season. There's a tinge of Sean Burroughs here, with such a lack of power that he'll have to hit .310 to be good, and the contact rate may not support that. He's also a lousy third baseman, and the bat certainly won't play anywhere else. He could be Dave Magadan if it all works out.
