Padres Listening To Trade Offers For Logan Forsythe

USA TODAY Sports

The Padres may be on the verge of trading Logan Forsythe.

So, yeah. Seems like the days of The Aristocrat in San Diego could be coming to an end very soon. "A number of teams"? That must be serious business then. The Yankees were even in the mix last week. But, let's be honest. The job of infielder/utility man is a tough one to hold on to. Jesus Guzman fit that role and was sent to Houston for another possible utility man in Ryan Jackson. With Logan Forsythe in the same shoes, the same outcome is obviously possible. I mean, the Padres have Alexi "Swiss Army Knife" Amarista available at any position these days. This may be the case of too many cooks in the kitchen and other sayings that fit this situation.

Last week, Forsythe turned 27 and will enter his first year of arbitration after the 2014 season. In 2013, Logan had 6 home runs, but not without some struggles. Logan finished the season batting .214 over his 220 at-bats. Of all Padres last year with at least 150 at-bats, only Mark Kotsay had a lower batting average.

Where Forsythe will be dealt and for whom is still to be seen. Forsythe could be dealt for prospects or a bullpen arm. No matter the deal, by all indications, the deal is close.
