Forsythe is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe will receive what appears to be a regular maintenance day after starting every day of the week since Monday. In his stead, Nick Franklin will draw the start at the keystone.

Forsythe will start at second base in Monday's game against the Red Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe served as the designated hitter Sunday in his first game since last Monday, but he is ready to get back in the field Monday night. He has been on fire of late outside of his four-day absence, hitting six home runs over his last 10 games.

Forsythe (back) went 1-for-5 with two runs scored, three RBI and his 16th home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

He'd been sidelined for four games this week with back spasms, but Forsythe seemed none the worse for wear Sunday. The Rays used him at DH on Sunday rather than having him play the field, but assuming he doesn't have any lingering issues he should be back at second base soon enough.

Forsythe (back) will return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe has missed four straight games due to back spasms, but he'll return to the top of the order and serve as the DH Sunday afternoon. His presence indicates a stint on the DL won't be necessary, but the fact he's not playing second base suggests he may not yet be at 100 percent. Once Forsythe is able to take the field, Tim Beckham will likely go back to his role as a reserve.

Forsythe (back) is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe was set to take some swings Saturday afternoon before the Rays made a decision on his status. However, the Rays posted their lineup shortly after announcing Forsythe's plans to hit in the cage, so it was quickly apparent that he wasn't ready for game action. Tim Beckham will take over at second base in Forsythe's absence Saturday.

Forsythe (back) will take some swings in the batting cage this afternoon before making a decision on whether he can play Saturday against the Rangers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Back spasms have kept Forsythe out of the lineup since Tuesday, but it looks as though the veteran has turned a corner and will at least get some swings in Saturday. There's still no guarantee he'll return to the lineup Saturday, but he does appear to be trending in the right direction. A further update on his status will be made available once Tampa Bay releases its lineup.

Forsythe (back) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Rangers, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Forsythe was able to field groundballs on the turf during pregame drills he did not gain clearance to start Friday. It will mark his third consecutive absence, but there has been nothing to suggest Forsythe is in any immediate danger of landing on the DL. Tim Beckham will man second base Friday as Mikie Mahtook leads off.

Forsythe (back) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Padres, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe will sit for the second straight day after being scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms. The Rays are considering the infielder day-to-day, and Nick Franklin will again fill in at second base Wednesday.

Forsythe was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms.

EDGE Analysis

Nick Franklin is now slated to man second base and lead off against Padres right-hander Edwin Jackson. Forsythe has been going strong since his return from a shoulder injury in mid-June, starting 59 straight games and completing all but one of them. The extent of this setback is uncertain.

Forsythe went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and another RBI on a sacrifice fly in Monday's victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder snapped a 1-1 tie in the second with a 440-foot blast off Luis Perdomo, plating Corey Dickerson. Forsythe's eighth-inning sacrifice fly that drove in Logan Morrison extended the Rays lead to 5-1 at the time, and served as his fourth RBI over the last two games. Forsythe's five homers in August serve as his best monthly total this season to date and he's also raised his average 14 points since Aug. 1.
