Profile: Forsythe is arguably one the best acquisitions the Rays made in recent seasons. His approach at the plate allows him to hit anywhere in the top half of the lineup, as he works deep into counts and rarely expands his strike zone to give in to pitchers. He has shown the ability to function as a tablesetter when needed or as a run-producer as the latest version of the Ben Zobrist model in Tampa Bay. He has found a nice home defensively at second base, even if his double-play partner continues to be a revolving door. He loses on battles within the zone when pitchers get him to swing over splitters and breaking balls, or he gets caught guessing which half of the plate to cover. Early in his career, he was considered someone better against lefties than righties but has been better than the league average against both in each of the past two seasons. He is one of the more underrated players in the game for his position, and he should receive a strong fantasy boost following a trade to the Dodgers. (Jason Collette)

The Quick Opinion: Forsythe is a tough out that does many things well with a very high floor as a complete player, and his new environment should only increase his value.
