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.

Forsythe is out of the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Forsythe has received the majority of the starts at second base, but will give way to Tim Beckham on Monday. The 28-year-old has slashed .267/.371/.433 through 19 contests thus far and figures to continue getting most of the starts with Nick Franklin on the disabled list with an oblique injury.

Forsythe is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Forsythe has started 11 of the first 12 games of the season for manager Kevin Cash, but will take a seat Sunday in favor of Tim Beckham, who is 7-for-28 at the plate with two homers to start the year. Cash will likely continue to give Beckham the occasional spot start as long has he can provide surprising power, but consider Forsythe the primary second baseman until further notice.
