Logan Forsythe drawing trade interest

The versatile 27-year old is drawing interest from "a number of teams".

While Chase Headley has been the subject of constant trade rumors over the past couple of years, another Padres infielder could be on the move soon. According to a team source, "a number of teams" have asked about infielder Logan Forsythe in recent trade talks.

As Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com noted last week, the Yankees have inquired about trying to acquire one of the Padres' infielders, with Forsythe serving as a realistic option for them. The source cautioned that it "would be a surprise" if Forsythe ended up in the Bronx, however.

Forsythe, 27, is likely viewed by some teams as a buy-low candidate after he hit .214 with 6 HR and 19 RBI in 75 games with San Diego last season. He is primarily a second baseman, but saw time at five different positions in 2013-- second base, shortstop, third base, left field, and right field.

The Padres have been rumored to be looking to add another reliever in addition to Joaquin Benoit, but that is considered doubtful unless it's "something small", according to the source. They could potentially look to flip Forsythe for relief depth, and likely would be able to get some value due to his strong trade market.
