MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers have interest in Logan Forsythe.
Forsythe would fit in nicely at second base, where the Dodgers now have an opening with both Chase Utley and Howie Kendrick no longer around. Worth noting is that president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman is the one who dealt for Forsythe when he was with the Rays and he also reportedly had interest in him at this past season's trade deadline.
