Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Logan Forsythe is a top-of-the-order hitter, but not necessarily leadoff.
This is contrary to what Roberts said right after the signing when he called Forsythe his likely leadoff hitter. Chances are he'll still see a bunch of time there, as the Dodgers' don't have an ideal alternative, but Roberts is at least keeping his options open. It would be interesting to see Joc Pederson get another shot there against right-handers. Feb 15 - 3:46 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Logan Forsythe is likely to hit leadoff this season.

The Dodgers finally landed their second baseman this week when they acquired Forsythe from the Rays for prospect right-hander Jose De Leon. The 33-year-old owns a .347 on-base percentage over the last two seasons and was the primary leadoff hitter for the Rays in 2016, so it's a familiar role for him. He should again be a useful fantasy option at second base if the Dodgers stick to their plan.

Dodgers acquired 2B Logan Forsythe from the Rays in exchange for RHP Jose De Leon.

The Dodgers finally have their second baseman after months of trade talks with the Twins involving Brian Dozier that ultimately led to nothing. They refused to give up more than De Leon for Dozier but have landed Forsythe for De Leon straight up in a deal that makes sense for both sides. Forsythe has batted .273/.347/.444 over the last two seasons and is under team control for $15.5 million through 2018.
Jan 23 - 7:06 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Dodgers and Rays are "deep into discussions" on a trade that would send Logan Forsythe to Los Angeles.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times says the Rays will be getting Jose DeLeon for Forsythe and that the trade should be announced soon. It will be the second time Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman has traded for Forsythe, as he was with the Rays when they acquired him from the Padres. Forsythe has batted .273/.347/.444 over the last two seasons and is under team control for $15.5 million through 2018.
Jan 23 - 6:49 PM

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Dodgers have interest in Logan Forsythe.

Forsythe would fit in nicely at second base, where the Dodgers now have an opening with both Chase Utley and Howie Kendrick no longer around. Worth noting is that president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman is the one who dealt for Forsythe when he was with the Rays and he also reportedly had interest in him at this past season's trade deadline. Forsythe is under team control through 2018.

Logan Forsythe is absent from the Rays starting lineup on Friday.

Manager Kevin Cash indicated that Forsythe has been pushing himself very hard lately and that it's just a regular day of rest. Expect to see him back in there for the final two games of the season this weekend.

Logan Forsythe hit his 20th home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

He got there in legitimate fashion, taking all-everything closer Craig Kimbrel deep for a solo shot in the ninth inning. It's the first time in Forsythe's career that he's hit 20 homers in a season. The 29-year-old is batting .274/.344/.464 with 52 RBI, 75 runs scored and six steals to date.

Logan Forsythe is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

It's a simple day off. Alexei Ramirez will occupy second base.

Logan Forsythe is absent from the Rays' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Orioles.

Nick Franklin will start at second base and bat leadoff versus Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez. This looks to be a routine day of maintenance for Forsythe.

Logan Forsythe finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Forsythe had a single to lead off the Rays' five-run sixth inning and also singled and scored an inning later. The multi-hit game was his third in a row and fourth in his last five games, raising his line to .281/.350/.475. The 29-year-old has 17 homers, 46 RBI, 65 runs scored and six steals on the year.

Logan Forsythe went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Forsythe's three-run home run off Martin Perez broke the game wide-open in a five-run fourth, padding what had been a 3-2 lead. The homer was 16th of the season, one shy of the career-best 17 he posted in 2015. Overall, the 29-year-old outfielder is slashing a strong .279/.339/.481 across 362 at-bats.
Sun, Aug 21, 2016 05:50:00 PM

Logan Forsythe (back) is back in the Rays' lineup Sunday.

He's serving as the designated hitter and in his customary leadoff spot. It's possible the Rays will have Forsythe DH for a few days as they ease him back into things. The 29-year-old missed nearly a week of action with back spasms.
Sun, Aug 21, 2016 10:12:00 AM

Logan Forsythe said Friday that his back is feeling "not as good as expected."

Forsythe was able to field some grounders in pre-game Friday, but apparently his back didn't respond as hoped. He'll visit with the Rays' team doctor and chiropractor Friday. The second baseman is day-to-day for now and he said there hasn't been any talk this point about going on the disabled list. Tim Beckham is at second base Friday.
Fri, Aug 19, 2016 04:19:00 PM

Logan Forsythe (back) remained out of the Rays' lineup Friday.

The club had been expecting him back in there. The good news is Forsythe was able to field some grounders in pre-game, so he should be back in there at some point this weekend.
