Forsythe's $8.5 million team option was exercised by the Dodgers on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off a season in which he hit .224 with a .678 OPS over 119 games, the Dodgers opted to pick up Forsythe's option and keep him for the 2018 season. In addition to his average falling from 2016's mark of .264, Forsythe regressed in terms of power last season as well. After logging 20 home runs and a .444 slugging percentage in 2016, Forsythe hit just six home runs to go with a .327 slugging percentage.

Forsythe is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Wednesday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe, who is hitting just .190/.315/.262 against same-handed pitching this season, will head to the bench for a second straight game with another righty (Jake Arrieta) toeing the rubber for the opposition. In his place, Chase Utley will start at the keystone and bat eighth.

Forsythe is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe is hitting just .190/.315/.262 in 237 at-bats against right-handed pitchers this season, so he'll get the day off with righty Kyle Hendricks throwing for the Cubs. In his stead, Chase Utley will start at second base and bat sixth.

Forsythe is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe is just 2-for-12 (.167) in his career against Zack Greinke, so he'll give way to Chase Utley at second base after starting the previous two games.

Forsythe is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe had been seeing regular playing time in place of the injured Justin Turner (finger), but his big day at the plate Monday (3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI) wasn't enough to keep him in the starting lineup following Turner's return. The 30-year-old will return to an undesirable platoon at the keystone with Chase Utley, likely drawing a start Wednesday against the left-handed Clayton Richard.

Forsythe is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe is hitting just .200/.304/.350 in 16 games this month, so he'll head to the bench for a second straight game as Chase Utley draws another start at the keystone in his place. He's now sat twice in a row against right-handed pitchers, which could hint he's settling back into the weaker side of a platoon with Utley.

Forsythe is not in the lineup Monday against the Phillies, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe started and went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe was riding the pine over the Dodgers' last two games, giving way to Chase Utley's hotter bat. Sunday's start against a right-hander was noteworthy because it put off what appeared to be a developing platoon situation at the keystone, for now at least. Forsythe's recent reduction in playing time was a direct result of his underwhelming .228/.359/.325 slash line through 107 games this season. The 30-year-old will have to begin producing at the plate, or run the risk of being phased out of the Dodgers' starting lineup as they prepare for a postseason run.

EDGE Analysis

He will sit for a second straight game and is hitting just .200/.282/.343 with one home run in 35 at-bats this month. Chase Utley will lead off and man the keystone against righty A.J. Cole.
