Logan Forsythe out at least six weeks with plantar fasciitis

Logan Forsythe was set to fill in for the injured Chase Headley at third base, but the Padres announced that he’ll miss at least six weeks with plantar fasciitis.

Forsythe has previously played through the foot injury, but he’ll be shut down completely and wear a walking boot for three weeks.

San Diego’s infield is in such rough shape that the Opening Day third baseman may be Cody Ransom, a 37-year-old journeyman who got more than 100 plate appearances in a big-league season for the first time last year. Prospect Jedd Gyorko is another option, but he may be needed at second base.
