Former Arkansas’ 3B Logan Forsythe Gets Call to MLB

Former Arkansas 2nd 3rd baseman, Logan Forsythe,  didn’t have to wait long before he got the first call up to the big leagues. Late Tuesday night, Forsythe was informed that he would be replacing injured 2nd baseman Orlando Hudson. Hudson, age 33, was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Padres.

On Wednesday night, Forsythe got his first MLB at-bat as a pinch-hitter in the 5th inning. He grounded out to shortstop.

Before being called up, Forsythe was playing for the AAA Tuscan Padres where he was averaging .291 with 4 HRs and 15 RBIs  this season. Forsythe played for the Arkansas Razorbacks from 2006-2008 and tied school record for Stolen Bases in a Game(4).
