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.
