Forsythe hit his eighth home run in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays. He finished 2-for-3 with a pair of walks to go with the solo shot.

After a horrible start to June, Forsythe is hitting .500 in his past eight games and his six multi-hit games in that span. Forsythe isn't great at anything but he's good at everything at the plate -- his contact rate, walk rate and isolated power are all slightly above the league average. Even if his BABIP comes down from .325, he should remain solid for second base.

Forsythe had a nice offensive day Monday, going 3-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base.

Forsythe had been struggling at the plate this month, and even after his big day Monday he's still hitting a paltry .204 for June. The infielder has been strong this season on the whole however, hitting .271 with seven home runs and five stolen bases.

Forsythe is out of the lineup for Friday's game, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Nick Franklin will man second base to fill in for Forsythe, who is probably just getting some rest. Forsythe is hitting .170/.74/.302 in his last 15 games, which has brought average down to .265. That's not terrible, but a decent distance from when Forsythe was easily around the top of the Rays' hitters.

Forsythe provided the only run of Friday's game with a ninth-inning solo homer off Mariners closer Fernando Rodney.

His seventh homer of the season was his only hit of the day, but it was enough. Forsythe's provided surprising fantasy production this year, as he now has a new career high in homers for a season and we're still only a third of the way through. His combination of pop, plate discipline and versatility is playing very well in Tampa, and in fantasy lineups too.

Forsythe is being moved back to his regular second base role, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Forsythe's stint at first base seems to have last all of three games, with career middle infielder Jake Elmore now starting at first. Forsythe could still see some time at first, but his versatility means several other positions are also possible.

Forsythe will serve as the regular first baseman while James Loney (finger) is out, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Loney is expected to miss four-to-six weeks, giving Forsythe plenty of opportunities to play first base. Forsythe has already made 13 appearances (seven starts) at the position this season, and he should soon have first-base eligibility in nearly every league.

Forsythe was 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in a losing effort against Seattle on Monday night.

Tampa Bay's super utility man played first base in this one, and will probably see quite a bit of time there going forward with James Loney going on the disabled list earlier in the day. Forsythe has been productive with five home runs and 21 RBI to go with a solid .299 average, so he warrants serious consideration in deeper leagues.

Forsythe is starting at first base Monday against the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The news here is that with James Loney (finger) hitting the DL on Monday, Forsythe is the leading candidate to serve as his primary fill-in at first base. Forsythe is used to playing all over the diamond, and he's started at second, third and DH over the past week alone.

Forsythe is starting at DH and batting second in Sunday's lineup against the Twins, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

Filling the second spot isn't too big a deal for Forsythe's long-term outlook, as he's just filling in for a resting Steven Souza. However, the stint at DH could matter, as Nick Franklin is taking over second for at least one game. Forsythe's bat has been too good to take him out of the starting lineup and both players can regularly play multiple positions, so there's no telling what the Rays are planning to do as far as everyday positions go.

Forsythe got the start at first base on Saturday, going 1-for-3 with his fourth home run of the season and two RBI.

He's now hitting .315/.356/.519 in 54 May at-bats, and with eligibility at first, second and third base in leagues with a five appearance threshold, Forsythe seems to be inheriting Ben Zobrist's jack-of-all-trades role on the Rays. Nick Franklin is finally poised to join the roster next week, but Forsythe's versatility should continue to get him regular playing time.
