Logan Forsythe went 2-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
Forsythe was one of just two Rays players to pick up multiple hits (Desmond Jennings likewise notched a pair of singles). Little did the second baseman know, when he came home to score on a Jake Peavy throwing error in the first inning, it would be the only Rays run to score on the afternoon. After swatting 17 homers and driving in 68 runs in a breakout 2015 campaign, Forsythe is slashing .304/.380/.507 with five homers and 15 RBI across 148 at-bats this season. Jun 19 - 4:53 PM

Logan Forsythe hit his fifth home run of the year in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

More notably, the solo homer in the ninth inning was Forsythe's first since spending four weeks on the disabled list with a fractured left shoulder blade. He hasn't shown many effects of the injury in his eight games since being activated, batting .270 with three RBI and five runs scored in that span. The second baseman is hitting .299/.377/.507 overall.

Logan Forsythe punched three hits in six at-bats and added a walk and a run in the Rays' victory over the Mariners on Wednesday.

The 3-for-6 day boosted Forsythe's batting average over the .300 mark -- he is now slashing .305/.385/.511 in 148 plate appearances. The second baseman missed a month with a broken shoulder blade but he is back in action and picking up where he left off. These numbers are not a fluke, as they are not too foreign from the nice .804 OPS he yielded last year in 615 plate appearances.

Rays activated Logan Forsythe from the 15-day disabled list.

Forsythe fractured his left shoulder blade (ouch) in mid-May and after progressing through his rehab, he is ready to return to the spicy .308/.398/.523 triple-slash he had posted through 29 games. Those who have been stashing the 29-year-old second baseman on their benches should feel free to implement him as needed moving forward.

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Durham.

He was batting .308/.398/.523 with four homers and three stolen bases in 29 games before the injury.

That's the plan, anyway, and if all goes smoothly Forsythe could be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week.

Forsythe was batting .308/.398/.523 with four homers and three stolen bases in 29 games before the injury.

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).

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.

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.
