Potential trade target (or maybe not): Logan Forsythe

ph_523253File this one as part of that wide net Brian Cashman always talks about: Jon Morosi reported yesterday that the Yankees checked with the Padres about trading for some infield depth. According to Morosi, the target isn’t Chase Headley — who seems barely available, if he’s available at all — but rather utility man Logan Forsythe, a right-handed hitter who struggled last year but hit .384/.465/.545 against lefties in 2012.

I asked a source about the possibility of a Forsythe trade and was told this: “No smoke here. Rumor.”

We all know Cashman tends to check on a lot of different possibilities in the winter (probably true of every general manager), and lately the Yankees have sent signals that they’re looking for Forsythe-type complementary players rather than impact, everyday, third-base solutions. One executive from outside the Yankees organization said it seems the Yankees have asked about every possible third-base option in baseball.

So, are the Yankees going to trade for Logan Forsythe? I guess it’s possible, but I was told that such a trade isn’t imminent.
