Forsythe went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the A's.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran second baseman was the hero of the moment in the top of the eighth, plating Kevin Kiermaier with a 434-foot shot to left that erased a 2-0 deficit. Although the significance of his feat was neutralized in the home half of the inning when Erasmo Ramirez yielded a solo shot to Billy Butler, the homer did extend Forsythe's hitting streak to six games. He's had a rough go of it overall in July however, slashing just .212/.256/.353 and seeing his season average drop 28 points since the month began.

Forsythe went 1-for-5 with a solo homer Wednesday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe's seventh blast of the year got the Rays on the board in the sixth inning, but only drew the team within six runs in a losing effort. This was the first extra-base hit he's collected in his last six games, and he's now slashing .295/.357/.482 on the year.

Forsythe has his average back up over .300 courtesy of a current nine-game hitting streak, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran had seen his average noticeably dip following his June 10 return from a DL stint, with Forsythe bottoming out at a .284 figure following an 0-for-4 performance versus the Orioles on June 25. At the time, that number represented a 31-point drop from the .315 average he'd sported after his first game back from injury. Forsythe's current hitting streak began the next day with a two-hit outing against Baltimore, and he's gone on to tally three additional multi-hit efforts since then. The 29-year-old also has four two-baggers over that span, along with a homer and four RBI. His current .304 average is a robust 46 points over his career .258 figure.

Forsythe is hitting .462 over his last three games after going 3-for-5 with a double, two-run homer, three RBI and three runs in Monday's 13-7 victory over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder has begun heating up at the plate again, with Monday's effort representing his second multi-hit game over the last three, and seventh overall in the 17 June contests he's participated in. Although he's considerably cooled off from the .341 number his average topped out at on April 30, Forsythe has brought his average up 13 points over the last four games, and the figures in his .297/.366/.495 season line are all career bests.

Forsythe went 2-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

He's now hitting .286 (12-for-42) in nine games since coming off the DL while scoring six runs from the leadoff spot in Tampa's order. The steal was his fourth of the year, and after swiping nine in 2015 he's got a shot at the first double-digit campaign of his career.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder has hit the ground running after his DL stint, and scored the winning run in Wednesday's 13-inning victory when Logan Morrison drew a bases-loaded walk. Forsythe was on base four times during the extra-inning win, and has a .778 OPS in his first five games back from injury.

Forsythe (shoulder) enjoyed a triumphant return from the DL in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Astros, going 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and run scored.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran picked up right where he left off before injuring his shoulder, and reclaimed his leadoff spot upon return as well. Forsythe's Friday effort brings his season line to .315/.402/.532, with the average representing a 59-point improvement over his career figure.

Forsythe (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe only needed two games in his rehab assignment at Durham for the team to deem him healthy. He went 2-for-5 with a homer in those games while also drawing a walk and hit-b-pitch. Shoulder injuries can be a drag on a players' productivity even after they're activated, so he still carries some risk even though he's likely to immediately resume starting duties at second base and hit near the top of the order. His activation will send Nick Franklin down to Durham.

Forsythe (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like Forsythe could be back as soon as Friday, with the second baseman only expected to need two or three rehab games to prepare for a return. He was off to a great start before suffering a hairline fracture in his shoulder blade, batting .308/.398/.525 in 123 plate appearances out of the leadoff spot. Look for Forsythe to slot back in atop the order upon activation.
