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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 17 - 12:07 AM

Logan Forsythe is not in the Rays starting lineup on Saturday.

He's a little banged out after colliding with teammate Kevin Kiermaier on Friday so manager Kevin Cash wanted to play it safe and give him a day off to rest. Look for Forsythe to return to action on Sunday.
Apr 16 - 1:56 PM

Logan Forsythe is considered day-to-day after sustaining a bruised left hip and lower leg in a collision with teammate Kevin Kiermaier on Friday.

With as bad as the collision looked, Forsythe can consider himself fortunate that he walked away with only a few bumps and bruises. Kiermaier is still being evaluated. Look for Forsythe to return to the Rays lineup at some point over the weekend.
Apr 15 - 9:07 PM

Logan Forsythe was forced to leave Friday's game against the White Sox after colliding with teammate Kevin Kiermaier in the outfield.

The two were involved in a nasty collision while chasing down a pop fly off the bat of Avisail Garcia to end the top half of the fourth inning. The Rays should have an update on their statuses shortly.
Apr 15 - 8:34 PM

Logan Forsythe went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Proceedings were knotted at 1-1 entering the eighth inning. With two outs and a runner on base, Forsythe stepped to the plate to battle with Indians starter Corey Kluber. The 29-year-old second baseman got the better of him, launching a go-ahead two-run homer to put his club up 3-1. They would tack on two more runs in the frame to win 5-1. Forsythe's 2016 outlook is less-than-clear, though, as 2015 served as a career-year almost across the board. We'll see if he can come close to duplicating last season's .281/.359/.444 triple-slash. 2015 also saw him post his first double-digit homer season.
Apr 13 - 12:04 AM

Logan Forsythe went 3-for-4 with a go-ahead, two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

There were just four extra-base hits between both teams on the night, and Forsythe had two of them. The big one was a two-run shot in the eighth inning off of Brett Cecil, who hadn't allowed a run since June 21 of last year. Forsythe should be a valuable fantasy commodity for the second straight season from the top of the Rays' order.
Apr 5 - 10:38 PM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Sunday that Logan Forsythe will hit leadoff versus right- and left-handed pitching this season.

Forsythe spent most of his time last season hitting fourth or fifth. The 29-year-old produced a .359 on-base percentage in 2015, and the Rays would be happy to see him duplicate that number from the leadoff spot in 2016.
Mar 27 - 10:05 AM

Logan Forsythe is day-to-day with a left elbow contusion.

Forsythe exited Tuesday's Grapefruit League contest after he was hit in the arm with a pitch, but fortunately it's not a big deal. He should be good to go in a couple of days.
Mar 15 - 2:34 PM

Logan Forsythe left Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies after he was hit in the left arm with a pitch.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times notes that Forsythe didn't appear to be in a lot of pain. That's a good sign, but the Rays should pass along an update soon.
Mar 15 - 1:33 PM

Logan Forsythe is a candidate to bat leadoff for the Rays.

Forsythe hit leadoff for the second straight day Thursday. "My only input was I would like to get in there during spring training," Forsythe said. "If that’s how (manager Kevin Cash) wants to write the lineup out, I’d like to get some at-bats to get a feel and just try to prepare myself." Cash noted that he's also considering Desmond Jennings, Kevin Kiermaier, Brad Miller and Brandon Guyer for the leadoff spot. Forsythe didn't start in the leadoff spot once in 2015, spending most of his time hitting fourth or fifth during his breakout campaign.
