Logan Forsythe went 1-for-3 with an RBI double as the Dodgers defeated the Rockies on Wednesday night.
Forsythe's run-scoring double off of Kyle Freeland got the Dodgers on the board in the fourth inning and proved to be too much for the Rockies to overcome. His days of being relevant from a fantasy perspective are long gone however, as he's hitting a putrid .188/.243/.304 with one homer and five RBI in his first 74 plate appearances this year.

Dodgers activated INF Logan Forsythe from the 10-day disabled list.

Reinforcements are on the way for the scuffling Dodgers. Forsythe has been out since mid-April with right shoulder inflammation, but he's back in there at second base on Tuesday. The 31-year-old was off to a slow start after a disappointing 2017, but he's still capable of being a useful option in deeper fantasy formats.
May 15 - 3:54 PM

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) is on track to be activated by the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Forsythe is serving as the designated hitter for Saturday's High-A Rancho Cucamonga game, and Dodgers manager said the expectation is that he'll play again Sunday. "If all goes well," Roberts said, he will then fly to Miami Monday and be activated for the team's game against the Marlins on Tuesday. Forsythe has been out since mid-April with right shoulder inflammation.
May 12 - 8:24 PM

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

He and teammate Justin Turner (wrist) are both beginning rehab stints this weekend. It's taken Forsythe almost a month to recover from right shoulder inflammation. Veteran Chase Utley has filled in at second base during his absence.
May 10 - 9:05 PM

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

Forsythe had to halt his throwing program for a bit last week due to lingering inflammation in his throwing shoulder, but he's feeling better now. The 31-year-old infielder might be ready to return to the Dodgers' active roster by the middle of next week if he's able to avoid setbacks.
May 1 - 8:06 PM

Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports that Logan Forsythe (shoulder) has stopped his throwing program.

The delay comes to allow Forsythe's shoulder inflammation to subside. Stephen reports that the infielder will resume throwing against on Friday -- assuming the inflammation in the right shoulder has in fact reduced. The 31-year-old Forsythe is now eligible to come off the disabled list, but he likely doesn't return until the end of April or beginning of May.
Apr 25 - 4:30 PM

Logan Forsythe (shoulder) has resumed throwing.

Forsythe has battled a shoulder issue since spring training. The Dodgers initially said that they thought Forsythe would be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on April 25, but obviously that's not going to happen.
Apr 23 - 5:52 PM

The Dodgers expect Logan Forsythe (shoulder) to be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on April 25.

Manager Dave Roberts revealed that Forsythe has been battling a shoulder issue since spring training and it flared up on him Saturday. He doesn't have any structural damage, though, so the club thinks he'll feel better after a little rest.
Apr 15 - 2:24 PM

Dodgers placed INF Logan Forsythe on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Forsythe underwent an MRI after exiting Saturday's game with a sore right shoulder. It appears he's avoided structural damage but obviously he still needs some down time. Breyvic Valera has replaced him on the roster.
Apr 15 - 1:20 PM

Logan Forsythe exited Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with right shoulder discomfort.

Forsythe was in the field ready to play defense in the sixth inning when the Dodgers trainer visited with him. Eventually Forsythe exited with the trainer. It's hard to tell how serious the ailment is at the moment, but it's a fair assumption that Forsythe will sit out Sunday's series finale, at the very least.
Apr 15 - 12:01 AM

Logan Forsythe left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with an undisclosed injury.

Forsythe spoke with a trainer before the sixth inning started -- one in which Forsythe was to play defense, so this wasn't a hitting injury -- and eventually he left the game with the trainer. It's not clear what the injury was or when he sustained it. The Dodgers should provide an update shortly.
Apr 14 - 11:11 PM

Logan Forsythe was hitless in three at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in Friday's 1-0 loss against San Francisco.

That's OK, as no one was getting hits off of Johnny Cueto or Alex Wood. But it was also a dismal night for Forsythe in the field, too, as he was charged with three errors. He made two errant throws and also booted a ground ball. So far, so bad for Forsythe, as he tries to hold down the hot corner while Justin Turner (fractured left wrist) is on the shelf.
Mar 31 - 1:11 AM

Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts said Monday that he expects Logan Forsythe to slide over and cover third base while Justin Turner (wrist) is sidelined.

That means that some combination of Chase Utley and Enrique Hernandez will fill in at second base for at least a couple of weeks while Turner is on the shelf. The club could also use backup catcher Austin Barnes there on occasion to help patch it together.
Mar 20 - 8:37 AM

Logan Forsythe plated three runs as part of a two-hit performance Wednesday in the Dodgers’ Cactus League win over the Angels.

He supplied most of the Dodgers’ offense in this one. Forsythe got things started with an RBI double in the second and capped the afternoon with a two-run blast off John Lamb in the seventh. He’s been a man possessed, collecting two homers and six RBI to go with a .500 average this spring. Forsythe can play all over the infield but should see most of his time at second base.
Mar 7 - 7:16 PM

Dodgers exercised 2B Logan Forsythe's $8.5 million club option for 2018.

It was an expected move, despite a disappointing first season with the Dodgers. Acquired from the Rays over the winter, the 30-year-old batted just .224 with six homers and a .678 OPS over 119 games. Still, he mashed lefties and was a key contributor during the postseason. Bringing him back doesn't break the bank. It also gives the Dodgers flexibility depending on what else they might do this winter.
