    #Rays are acquiring Logan Forsythe from the #Padres in a 4-player trade

    According to sources, the #Rays are acquiring Logan Forsythe from the #Padres in a 4-player trade: http://sbn.to/1ap6mBH

    The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired Logan Forsythe from the San Diego Padres in a four-player trade, according to a league source. Alex Torres is likely headed to San Diego in the deal, and each team seems set to receive an additional prospect.

    The trade is likely to be announced on Friday, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation.

    As we reported yesterday, the Padres had received calls from "a number of teams" who were interested in acquiring the versatile Forsythe. Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com noted that the Yankees were a realistic destination for him before the Rays became aggressive in recent days.

    In 75 games in 2013, Forsythe hit .214 with 6 HR and 19 RBI in his third major league season. . The 27-year old appeared at five positions—third base, shortstop, second base, left field, and right field—for the Padres last year and will likely serve as a super-utility player for Tampa next year. He is a lifetime .241 hitter with 12 HR and 57 RBI in 228 career games.

    Torres, seems likely to be headed to the Padres, who have been pursuing left-handed relief help in recent weeks. The 26-year old was 4-2 with a 1.71 ERA in 58 innings with the Rays last season, and will join a Padres bullpen that already added Joaquin Benoit earlier in the offseason.

    I wonder how the Rays will use Forsythe? Maybe Zobrist will go back to the OF?

    Oh.

    "If we think we’re going to go out in a seek and destroy mission, this team will just laugh at you. They’ve had people running at them for five years; they know how to deal with it. Going out and thinking we’re going to intimidate the Chicago Blackhawks is nuts. They’ve seen all of that before and they just play right through it.

    Infield depth I'd imagine.
    They only have Rodriguez and Lee (which isn't the worst situation in the world) but Lee's coming off of injury.

    I doubt Zobrist bumps DeJesus/Guyer/Joyce from the OF on a permanent basis.

    Nice looking deal for the Rays. Alot of teams wanted this player for the underrated utility role.

    I must be the only one who thinks it's crazy to trade a 25 year old lefty starter who can throw 95 mph for a utility infielder who hit .214 last year. This was an absolute robbery. I wouldn't be surprised if Torres became Matt Moore for the Padres. If SD keeps him in the bullpen they're idiots.

    I didn't like this trade for the Rays until I saw the prospects. Not a bad trade.

    the Rays could have a good platoon using Forsythe and Joyce. when Forsythe plays he is at 2B and Zobrist is in the OF?
    Joyce can't hit LHP, but Forsythe can.

    I thought they were only getting Logan back but I just read up more on the trade from another source, and I am convinced more than ever that Friedman must have been drunk while he negotiated this trade.
