Logan Forsythe 2B/DH TB 3 Days

Forsythe is expected to receive most of the starts at second base with Nick Franklin (oblique) expected to miss the beginning of the season, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Forsythe is expected to platoon with Nick Franklin when he's healthy, but should be part of the everyday lineup to begin the season. He's also gotten in some work at first base in spring, but the Rays are reportedly exploring John Jaso as an option there once again, with Juan Francisco also available.

Forsythe is positioned in a platoon -- where he'll start against lefties -- at second base with Nick Franklin to begin the year, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

It's hardly surprising that the Rays will play the matchups at the position, given that Franklin is an unproven bat against big league pitching. One of Tim Beckham, Jake Elmore, or Alexei Casilla will make the roster as a sixth infielder to provide additional depth.

Forsythe agreed to a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Rays on Friday, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Forsythe heads into 2015 as a projected bench player following multiple offseason acquisitions. He played in 110 games last season, batting .223/.287/.329 with six home runs and 26 RBI in 301 at-bats. His numbers figure to take a hit in the upcoming season barring an injury to one of the projected starters.

Forsythe went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He'll continue to start against lefties, which was the case Saturday with Mark Buehrle on the hill for Toronto. For the season, Forsythe's .245/.299/.359 leaves plenty to be desired, and it's somewhat surprising that he's given opportunities to hit in the middle of the order for some of his spot starts, as he's produced in line with a bottom-third option thus far.

Logan Forsythe went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Forsythe's 15th RBI of the year proved enough for David Price and company, as his second-inning hit drove in the first run of the game. Forsythe has become a regular in Rays manager Joe Maddon's lineup in recent weeks, but he's hitting just .243/.291/.344 overall and should be left alone in fantasy leagues.

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Forsythe, starting at second base with Ben Zobrist handling shortstop, got the Rays on the scoreboard with an RBI single in the fourth inning. In his past four games, Forsythe is 9-for-16 with three runs scored and six RBI. While he's hot and Yunel Escobar is on the disabled list, Forsythe is a worthwhile add in AL-only leagues.

Logan Forsythe singled in Brandon Guyer in the top of the 12th inning as the Rays beat the Yankees 4-3 on Monday.

It was Forsythe's second hit of the night. He's gone 7-for-12 with two homers and two walks in his last three games, and he hit .315 overall in June. Forsythe has been a part-time player for the Rays so far, but there's a good chance he'll finish it as an everyday guy, possibly as the result of a Ben Zobrist trade. That might not make him an asset in 10- or 12-team mixed leagues, but those in 14- and 16-teamers should think about picking him up.

Logan Forsythe went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Batting leadoff with Ben Zobrist getting the day off, Forsythe doubled to lead off the game and scored on an Evan Longoria double two batters later. Forsythe later led off the fourth with a single, scoring on a Wil Myers double. Despite the good day, the part-time player is batting just .175/.262/.246 on the year.

Logan Forsythe went 0-for-3 before being pulled for a pinch-hitter Monday against the Orioles.

Forsythe is 5-for-28 with no RBI, one run scored and one walk through 10 games with the Rays. He's likely in line for less playing time against right-handers until he starts to produce.

Rays acquired INF Logan Forsythe, RHPs Brad Boxberger, Matt Andriese, Matt Lollis and INF Maxx Tissenbaum from the Padres for LHP Alex Torres and RHP Jesse Hahn.

Forsythe batted just .214/.281/.332 over 75 games last season while battling plantar fasciitis, but he showed some potential in 2012 and can play all over the diamond. The 27-year-old is a bit redundant with Sean Rodriguez around, but the Rays clearly think he can play an important role.
