Logan Forsythe (shoulder) took grounders Wednesday.
It's a nice first step for the rehabbing second baseman, who's been on the disabled list since May 14 with a fracture in his left shoulder blade. Forsythe told Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times that he's aiming to return during the Rays' next homestand (June 10-19). He was mashing at a .308/.398/.523 clip with four home runs and 12 RBI in 29 games before the injury. May 26 - 12:11 PM

Rays placed 2B Logan Forsythe on the 15-day disabled list with a hairline fracture in his left shoulder blade.

Forsythe suffered the injury Monday when Felix Hernandez struck him in the upper part of his back with a pitch. It was initially diagnosed as a bruise, which is why the second baseman has remained active all week. Tim Beckham is doing most of the filling in at second base for Tampa Bay. Forsythe is expected to miss at least three more weeks while the hairline fracture heals.

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) remained out of the Rays' lineup Friday.

He hasn't played since exiting Monday's game following a hit by pitch on the back of his left shoulder. Forsythe had been expected back for this one, so there would seem to be a good chance he'll be ready Saturday. Tim Beckham is filling in at second base.

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) is expected back in the Rays' lineup on Friday.

May 13 - 11:16 AM

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) is doubtful to return to the Rays' starting lineup until Friday.

Forsythe has some lingering discomfort after taking a Felix Hernandez pitch off his left shoulder blade on Monday night. "There's just a lot of soft tissue and nerves back there, and that's what kind of lit it up," the second baseman said Tuesday. Tim Beckham started at second base and hit seventh on Tuesday night against the Mariners.

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) is out of the Rays' starting lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Forsythe took a Felix Hernandez pitch off his left shoulder on Monday night. X-rays came back negative, but he has some swelling and a bruise. Consider him day-to-day. Tim Beckham is at second base and batting seventh Tuesday versus Mariners lefty Wade Miley.

X-rays came back negative on Logan Forsythe's left shoulder.

Forsythe was forced to exit Monday's game against the Mariners after he was hit in the shoulder by a pitch from Felix Hernandez. He's dealing with some soreness, so the Rays could decide to keep him out of the mix until after Thursday's off-day.
May 10 - 11:26 AM

Logan Forsythe exited Monday's game against the Mariners after being hit in the shoulder by a pitch from Felix Hernandez.

The Rays should provide an update soon, but he was in enough pain to leave the game. Tim Beckham replaced him at second base.
May 9 - 11:14 PM

Logan Forsythe hit a go-ahead two-run single in the ninth inning of Saturday's win over the Angels.

With the game knotted at 2-2 and Joe Smith pitching for the Angels in the ninth, Forsythe came through with a clean single up the middle to drive in Logan Morrison and Kevin Kiermaier and boost the Rays to a 4-2 lead. That would stand as the final score. Forsythe, 29, has been nothing short of phenomenal this season. He sports a .320/.402/.544 triple-slash with four homers and 12 RBI across 103 at-bats. Last season saw him post career bests across the board. He has backed those up well enough through the first month-plus in 2016.
May 8 - 12:50 AM

Logan Forsythe went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

Forsythe also walked in the game, reaching base in all four plate appearances. The solo homer in the seventh inning tied the game and set the stage for the Rays' walk-off winner in the ninth. Forsythe has carried his 2015 breakout into this year, batting .341/.426/.610 with four homers, 10 RBI, 14 runs scored and three steals as the Rays' leadoff hitter.
Apr 30 - 9:33 PM

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run scored Tuesday against the Orioles.

Forsythe continued playing catalyst atop the Rays' lineup, registering his fourth multi-hit game in his last eight contests. The second baseman is now hitting .306/.383/.556 with three homers, eight RBI and 13 runs scored. It appears as though last year's breakout was a legitimate one.
Apr 26 - 10:08 PM

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

It’s crazy to think that Forsythe was an established low-.200s hitter with minimal power just two years ago. He’s now proven himself to be a quality, well-rounded hitter. His two-hit night on Friday raised his batting average to .298, and he now has eight extra-base hits with an impressive .375 on-base percentage. For those who thought last year was a fluke, Forsythe is coming out strong in 2016 to argue otherwise.
Apr 22 - 10:27 PM

Logan Forsythe went 3-for-4 with two walks and three runs scored as the Rays beat the Red Sox 12-8 on Thursday.

Forsythe's OBP climbed from .304 to .355 with his five times on base today. That's what the Rays wanted from him in the leadoff spot after he spent most of last year batting in the middle of the order.
Apr 21 - 6:08 PM

Logan Forsythe (hip) is back in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

Forsythe sat out Saturday's game after bruising his hip in a collision with teammate Kevin Kiermaier on Friday. He's at second base and batting leadoff against Jose Quintana and the White Sox.
Apr 17 - 10:41 AM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Logan Forsythe (hip, leg) is a go for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Forsyth sat out Saturday's game after bruising his hip in a collision with teammate Kevin Kiermaier on Friday. Fortunately, it looks like he'll only miss one game. Cash wasn't as certain about Kiermaier's status for Sunday but said Monday's off day won't influence his decision. Tim Beckham filled in for Forsythe Saturday while Brandon Guyer took over for Kiermaier in center field.
