RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The rebound from injury the Rays were hoping for with Forsythe when they traded for him did not happen. Outside of a few weeks early in the summer, Forsythe struggled all season at the plate as he did in 2013 with San Diego. His strikeout rate is slightly below league average, and he does better at the plate when he is facing lefties, but even those numbers are a bit inflated. His .271/.337/.423 line against southpaws is heavily influenced by the outlier .384/.465/.545 line he had in 2012. He has hit just .215/.283/.296 against righties in his career which is why he doesnít get more playing time. Forsythe is best used in platoon situations but there is not any upside here. Sean Rodriguez may be dealt this offseason which could open up a few more plate appearances, but heís bench material for fantasy players.

2014

Forsythe endured a season afflicted by the annoyance known as plantar fasciitis, which enabled Jedd Gyorko to nail down second base in spring training. After two-plus months on the disabled list, Forsythe made his season debut on June 10, which coincided with a DL stint by Gyorko himself, allowing the former to start every day at the keystone. The mid-July return of Gyorko was soon followed by Everth Cabrera's 50-game suspension, thereby affording Forsythe a near-daily gig at shortstop. However, Forsythe's plantar fasciitis resurfaced and held him to pinch-hit appearances in September, and he ultimately disappointed in his 220 at-bats, slashing .214/.281/.332 with six home runs. Forsythe was traded to Tampa Bay as part of a seven-player deal in January, where he has a clearer path to part-time at-bats given the Rays' effective use of platoons.

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.
