The Yankees aren’t done with the offseason just yet, and they might make a move via trade.
The Yankees have recently inquired the San Diego Padres about the possibility of trading for some infield depth says Jon Morosi of FOX Sports. Morosi believes the most realistic target for a utility man would be Logan Forsythe. The Yankees would be unable to bring in someone such as Chase Headley because the farm system does not have enough pieces to swing a trade for Headley.
If the Yankees were able to acquire Forsythe, he could be a platoon player with Kelly Johnson against left handed pitching, although in Johnson’s career he’s had slightly better luck against southpaws than right handed pitching. Forsythe could also be insurance to Brian Roberts, who has seen his entire career at 2B.
From 2011-2013, Forsythe hit .241/.310/.349 and he’s swiped 11 bases in that time period. Although Forsythe had a good 2012 season with a .273/.343/.390 slash, he had some difficulty in 2013, hitting .214/.281/.332.
