Logan Forsythe was 3-for-5 with a run scored against the Red Sox on Friday.
Forsythe cooled off significantly earlier this month, but he's hitting .476 (20-for-42) over his last 11 games. With a .298/.378/.453 batting line to go along with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and seven steals, he's been a nice surprise for the Rays and fantasy owners alike. Jun 26 - 11:02 PM

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks, and two stolen bases in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Forsythe drilled a solo home run in the seventh inning, attempting to help the Rays bridge a four-run deficit, but it wasn't enough. Forsythe has quietly been a quality fantasy asset, batting .293/.371/.455 with eight home runs, 32 RBI, and seven stolen bases.

Logan Forsythe singled three times in four at-bats in a losing effort Sunday versus the Indians.

The game remained 0-0 nearly through regulation until the Indians walked off in the bottom of the ninth. The Rays simply could not capitalize on Forsythe's effort, as he was the only Rays batter to reach base more than once. He has notched multi-hit efforts in five of his last seven games and owns a productive .288/.364/.440 triple-slash line with seven home runs and 31 RBI.

Logan Forsythe went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base, helping lead the Rays past the Nationals on Monday.

Forsythe pushed the Rays' lead to 2-0 with an RBI single in the third inning. He added another RBI single in the fourth to make it 5-0. It's his first multi-hit performance in 14 games in June. Forsythe has served well as the Rays' mostly-regular second baseman, batting .271/.351/.434 with seven home runs, 30 RBI, and five stolen bases.
Jun 15 - 10:44 PM

Logan Forsythe homered off Fernando Rodney in the top of the ninth to lead the Rays to a 1-0 win over the Mariners on Friday.

It was Forsythe's career-high seventh homer after he hit six each of the previous three seasons. He's playing much more than expected thanks to his hot start offensively and the Rays' injuries, and while he doesn't figure to keep hitting .282, the power is rather legit. He's a fringy mixed-league option at second base.

Logan Forsythe went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a two-run home run as the Rays beat the Angels on Tuesday.

Forsythe put the Rays on the board in the first inning, hitting a two-run home run off of C.J. Wilson. It's his sixth of the season, matching his career-high set in each of the last three seasons. With four months of the 2015 season left, it's safe to say he'll end up setting a new career-best. Forsythe is also hitting .288/.374/.475 with 24 RBI and 22 runs scored.
Jun 3 - 12:48 AM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday that Logan Forsythe will function as the regular first baseman with James Loney (finger) sidelined.

This will open things up for Nick Franklin to get more playing time at second base. Rene Rivera, Jacob Elmore, and Tim Beckham could also see some reps at first base, but Forsythe should get most of the playing time. Loney is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.
May 26 - 9:12 AM

Logan Forsythe walked and hit a solo home run, providing the Rays' only run in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

Forsythe put the Rays on the board with a sixth-inning solo shot to left field off of Roenis Elias. The 28-year-old has done a terrific job, batting .299/.374/.487 with five home runs and 21 RBI. He has played mostly at second base in the absence of Nick Franklin and has value in mixed leagues as long as he's hitting the way he is and getting regular at-bats.
May 25 - 10:08 PM

Logan Forsythe doubled and singled in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Forsythe's two hits represented half of the Rays' team total. The double was his sixth of the season. Seeing extended at-bats as regular starter Nick Franklin recovers from an oblique injury, Forsythe has driven in 10 runs with two homers and eight scored. He's slashing a more-than-respectable .286/.368/.468 over 77 at-bats. As long as Franklin is out, Forsythe should have decent value in AL-only leagues.
May 2 - 10:28 PM

Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Wednesday that Logan Forstyhe will get the majority of the playing time at second base to begin the season.

Forsythe is the obvious choice now that Nick Franklin (oblique) is expected to miss the start of the season. The 28-year-old batted just .223/.287/.329 with six homers and 26 RBI in 110 games last season, but he could have some sneaky AL-only value in the early going.
Mar 25 - 11:51 AM

Logan Forsythe hit a pair of homers Tuesday to lead the Rays past the Phillies 5-3.

Forsythe needs the Rays to stick Asdrubal Cabrera at shortstop, which would allow him to battle Nick Franklin for playing time at second. If the Rays instead decide to go with Cabrera at second, Forsythe will probably be limited to DH or left field duties against left-handers in the early going. Forsythe had a disappointing first season in the AL, hitting .223/.287/.329 in 301 at-bats, but he's showed more promise in the past.
Mar 17 - 4:23 PM

Logan Forsythe homered Thursday in the Rays' 9-3 rout of the Blue Jays.

Forsythe is competing for the second base job with Nick Franklin, who had been off to a rough start before going 2-for-3 with two RBI today. The Rays would prefer Franklin win the job, and, most likely, Forsythe will start off playing strictly against lefties, possibly in the DH spot. It'd take an expanded role later to give him value in AL-only leagues.
Mar 12 - 5:56 PM

Rays and INF Logan Forsythe avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.1 million contract.

He was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Forsythe hit just .223/.287/.329 with six homers and 26 RBI in 110 games in 2014 and is slated for a utility role in 2015.
Jan 16 - 1:29 PM

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times believes that Logan Forsythe will see some time at first base for the Rays in 2015, at least during spring training.

With Sean Rodriguez getting designated for assignment this week and with the organization's love of positional flexibility, it's safe to assume that Forsythe will be asked to handle several different positions if he occupies one of the valuable bench spots on the Rays bench. Forsythe hit just .223/.287/.329 with six homers and 26 RBI in 110 games in 2014.

Logan Forsythe had a big night at the plate in Friday's loss to the White Sox, going 2-for-3 with a double, home run and all three of the team's RBI.

He has made a living out of hammering southpaws, and Jose Quintana certainly wasn't exempt in this one. It has been a rough season on the whole for Forsythe however, hitting just .231/.296/.343 with six long balls and 26 RBI.
