Dodgers exercise Logan Forsythe’s 2018 option

first_imgAs expected, the Dodgers exercised their option to retain second baseman Logan Forsythe on Monday, agreeing to pay $8.5 million to bring him back.Forsythe, 30, batted .224 with six home runs this season, hitting .290 against left-handers. He batted .297 with a .435 on-base percentage during the postseason, helping the Dodgers reach the World Series with several strong defensive plays.The move essentially locks in the Dodgers’ starting infield for next season: Cody Bellinger at first base, Forsythe at second base, Corey Seager at shortstop, and Justin Turner at third base.The Dodgers would have owed Forsythe a $1 million buyout had they decided not to pick up his option.
