Logan Forsythe went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in a losing effort against the Nationals on Sunday.

That run-scoring hit off of Stephen Strasburg gave the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead in the second inning, but would wind up being the extent of their offense in the ballgame. Forsythe is hitting just .228/.357/.325 with five homers and 32 RBI in his first season with the Dodgers.
Sep 17 - 11:34 PM

Logan Forsythe swatted his fifth home run of the season as the Dodgers fell to the Rockies on Saturday night.

His solo shot off of Rockies' closer Greg Holland trimmed their deficit to one run in the ninth, but that would be as close as they would get. Forsythe finished the night 2-for-4 with a double and is now slashing .230/.359/.326 with five long balls and 29 RBI.

Aug 18 - 10:33 PM

Logan Forsythe doubled twice and walked Wednesday against the White Sox.

Forsythe has been a definite disappointment offensively, with the obvious caveat that it hasn't stopped the Dodgers from going 85-34 so far. If he can get hot down the stretch, it just adds more length to a lineup that's already plenty long.

He's just getting a breather. Chase Utley will fill in at second base and bat seventh against Friars right-hander Jhoulys Chacin. Forsythe has hit a sluggish .205 with no homers and 27 strikeouts over 73 second-half at-bats.

He also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely three times in his four trips to the dish. He's now hitting .238/.365/.318 with three homers and 23 RBI in 74 games.

With the bases loaded and one out in the third inning, Forsythe plated a run by keeping his bat on his shoulder, one of seven walks issued by Braves starter Sean Newcomb before exiting. The two runs scored matched Forsythe's total from his previous eight games. It's been that kind of year for the 30-year-old, who's slashing a disappointing .235/.358/.316 in his first year in Dodger blue.
Aug 4 - 12:34 AM

Logan Forsythe hit a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning of Sunday's win over the Braves.

Jul 8 - 4:14 PM

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Forsythe went yard in the fifth inning to give the Dodgers their only run in the six innings Robbie Ray was on the mound. They would not score again until they plated four runs in the ninth to overcome a late 4-1 deficit. After cracking a career-best 20 homers last season to give him back-to-back campaigns with double-digit dingers, the power just has not been there Forsythe this season. Thursday's homer was his third in 50 games and he is slugging just .349 on the year.
Jul 7 - 1:34 AM

Logan Forsythe finished 4-for-5 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored and an RBI in Saturday's game at San Diego.

Forsythe tied his career high with the four-hit game, his second consecutive such performance. He is 8-for-9 with two doubles and five runs scored over the past two outings to raise his average from .208 to .247. His patient fantasy owners have been waiting for production like this for a long time.
Jul 2 - 4:22 AM

Logan Forsythe reached all five times up Friday, going 4-for-4 with a walk and three runs scored.

Forsythe was hitting fifth tonight. He should eventually find himself back in the leadoff spot on a regular basis, but the Dodgers have been mixing and matching there, waiting for Forsythe to heat up.
Jul 1 - 1:43 AM

Logan Forsythe will return to second base now that Justin Turner is back from the disabled list.

Forsythe had been manning the hot corner in Turner's absence with Chris Taylor and Chase Utley splitting time at second base. The 30-year-old has yet to get going offensively, batting a mere .191 across 89 at-bats this year. Forsythe has spent much of the season battling injuries and the Dodgers will likely build in regular days off to keep him healthy.
