Logan Forsythe 2015 Outlook

Recommended Posts

So is this guy any good? My guess is no, to me it just looks like he has always struggled vs RHP but this year is getting help from BABIP. Didnt realize he was having this good of a season though

I was just reviewing my players yesterday and when I came across Forsythe, i set him as a servicable player that in 12+ teams should be on a team. He has multiple position availability, 1b/2b, and overall has been a strong contributor. He isn't in the top 12 in 1B by any means, but he is great for me in the 2b/ss slot.

I looked at him very similarly to Moustakas this year. I have been fairly happy with Moustakas, would have preferred a little bit more power, but the Average is great.

.283avg, 39/11/42/7 for Forsythe. compare that to the top Waiver options at 2B, at least in my league:

Semien: .249 38/8/22/9

Prado: .280 27/4/27/0

For what Forsythe is bringing, he has definitely been worthy of a roster spot on my team. He hasn't had prolonged streaks or slumps, just a steady production and nothing too fancy.

His Fantasy value has been solid but his "real life" value has been very good for the Rays.

3rd among 2B in HR

4th among 2B in wRC+

5th among 2B in wOBA

4th among 2B in Off WAR

4th among 2B in WAR

5th among 2B in RBI

6th among 2B in OPS

6th among 2B in BB%

11th among 2B in SB

The Rays have found themself a very solid 2B.

He's starting to get locked in again, especially when he faces a leftie. Now 2nd among 2B in both HR and RBI.

I'm surprised there's not been a post made since Aug 5. This guy has been solid.

One of the most underrated players this season. His Fantasy value has been solid but his real life value has been spectacular.

2nd among 2B in WAR

2nd among 2B in Off WAR

2nd among 2B in wRC+

2nd among 2B in HR

3rd among 2B in wOBA

3rd among 2B in OPS

He's been a Top 3 2B this season for the Rays. That's unreal.
