According to Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan, the Los Angeles Dodgers are close to acquiring Logan Forsythe. The Rays are expected to get José DeLeón in the trade.
Tampa Bay Times’ Rays beat writer Marc Topkin says the deal would happen soon.
This will be the second-time that Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman acquired Forsythe. When he was a member of the Rays front office, he acquired Forsythe in a trade with the San Diego Padres.
He is under control through the 2018 season. He’ll make $15.5 million during that time.
This past season, he had a .264 batting average with 20 home runs and 52 RBI’s in a 127 games.
The 30-year-old has spent the past three-years with the Rays. In his three-years with the Rays, he has a .262 batting average with 43 home runs and a 146 RBI’s in 390 games.
With the Padres in his first three-years to begin his career, he had a .241 batting average with 12 home runs and 57 RBI’s in 228 games.
