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. Nov 6 - 3:06 PM

Logan Forsythe is hitting seventh and playing second base for the Dodgers in Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday.

Some might have thought that the Dodgers might go with the more experienced Chase Utley at the keystone, but Forsythe gets the start. Don't be surprised if Utley ends up in the game at some point, though. The full lineup for Los Angeles versus Houston right-hander Lance McCullers: Chris Taylor CF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Cody Bellinger 1B, Yasiel Puig RF, Joc Pederson LF, Logan Forsythe 2B, Austin Barnes C, and Yu Darvish on the mound.

Logan Forsythe went 3-for-5 with an RBI and three runs scored in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Eleven of the Dodgers' 12 hits in this one were singles, and Forsythe had three of them, with his second one knocking in a run in the team's four-run fifth inning. Forsythe, who drew his second straight start at second base over Chase Utley, also added a stolen base. The bottom of the Dodgers' order did most of the damage in this one, as Forsythe, Austin Barnes and Yasiel Puig combined for eight hits, five RBI and five runs scored. The Dodgers are headed to Arizona up 2-0 in the series.
Oct 8 - 8:46 AM

Logan Forsythe went 3-for-3 with a homer, four RBI and a walk versus the Padres on Monday.

The Dodgers have been crossing their fingers, hoping for some sort of breakout for Forsythe after five months of steadily below average offense. A good night against Travis Wood doesn't necessarily mean it's coming, but the talent is there. He finished with OPS+s of 124 and 113 in his last two years with the Rays. Coming into tonight's game, he was at 83 for 2017.
Sep 26 - 2:32 AM

Logan Forsythe, making his first start at shortstop since 2014, went 0-for-3 with a walk on Thursday.

Forsythe ended up playing just an inning of short, as the Dodgers redid their entire infield after Justin Turner got hit by a pitch and left the game. Forsythe spent the rest of the afternoon at third base.
Sep 21 - 5:42 PM

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.
Sep 10 - 3:06 AM

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-3 with a double and three runs scored as the Dodgers dispatched of the Tigers on Friday.

Forsythe got the Dodgers on the board with an RBI single in the second inning. He also drew a walk in the ballgame, reaching base safely three times in his four trips to the plate. He's now hitting .247/.371/.332 with three homers and 27 RBI on the year.
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.
Aug 17 - 2:02 AM

Logan Forsythe is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Padres.

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.
Aug 12 - 5:53 PM

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI as the Dodgers continued their winning ways on Sunday.

Forsythe got the Dodgers on the board with a two-run single in the first inning, which proved to be more than enough support for Hyun-Jin Ryu and company. 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.
Aug 6 - 11:11 PM

Logan Forsythe went 1-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Braves on Thursday.

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.
