Forsythe led off and went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Tuesday's spring training loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe led off against the left-handed Matt Moore, a role he is likely to serve during the regular season. It is unclear if manager Dave Roberts will bat Forsythe atop the order against righties, but the veteran second baseman is making his case with four hits in nine plate appearances against righties this spring. We should get a better idea of what Roberts' batting orders will look like as we get closer to the regular season, but Forsythe will have value wherever he bats in what looks to be a loaded Dodger lineup.

Forsythe (knee) is in the Dodgers' Cactus League lineup Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old recently received lubricant injections in his knee, and it looks like they helped. Forsythe, who hit 20 home runs last year, will lead off as he continues to compete for that role during the season. Winning it would which would raise his fantasy value in a deep, potentially dangerous lineup.

Forsythe (knee) said he's lining up to start the Dodgers' Friday Cactus League contest, though he'll miss his third consecutive game Thursday after his last knee lubricant injection, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The new acquisition received a series of those doses, so he appears ready to go. It's still smart to monitor the 30-year-old's progress in the coming days and weeks, though the candidate for leadoff hitter looks like he'll be back in the swing. The 2016 20-homer stick would enjoy a notable bump in runs scored if he indeed sticks as the table-setter, which makes him an attractive mixed league value pick at the keystone.

Forsythe is starting at second and batting leadoff in Saturday's Cactus League opener against the White Sox, according to SB Nation.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dave Roberts has wavered on his initial thinking of using Forsythe as his primary leadoff hitter this past offseason, claiming he will use his new second baseman as a "top-of-the-order hitter." While one spring training game doesn't reveal all, it gives Forsythe a head start in the race to become the Dodgers' leadoff man. Other candidates to top the lineup this season are Andrew Toles, Andre Ethier and Joc Pederson.

Manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Forsythe is a top-of-the-order batter but not necessarily the Dodgers' leadoff hitter, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Late last month, Roberts said he expected Forsythe to lead off in 2017, but it seems he's backtracking on that idea. Perhaps Roberts is thinking about installing a lefty atop the order and then plugging Forsythe into the two-hole ahead of Corey Seager to go lefty-righty-lefty. Andrew Toles may be an option to set the table for Los Angeles.

Manager Dave Roberts said that he expects Logan Forsythe to be his leadoff hitter for the 2017 season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old was the Rays primary leadoff hitter last season, so it comes as no surprise that Roberts sees him as a competent option to set the table every night. With this spot in the batting order, Forsythe will likely be in line for more run-scoring opportunities thanks to his position in front of mashers like Corey Seager, Justin Turner, and Adrian Gonzalez.

Forsythe was traded to the Dodgers on Monday in exchange for pitcher Jose De Leon.

EDGE Analysis

After months of trade rumors, the Dodgers have found their starting second baseman. Forsythe is a versatile infielder coming off of an injury-riddled, yet productive 2016 season in which he slashed .264/.333/.444 and belted 20 home runs over 127 games. He'll likely see a nice increase in his offensive production in the potent Dodgers lineup.

Forsythe is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

EDGE Analysis

Forsythe's batting average has fallen from .281 on Sept. 15 to .266 as of Friday, so manager Kevin Cash decided to hold him out Friday. Juniel Querecuto will get the start at second base in Forsythe's place.

Forsythe went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran made things momentarily interesting against closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth with a 362-foot solo shot, his 20th round-tripper of the season. It marks the first time Forsythe has reached the milestone in his career, and comes on the heels of his previous best of 17 homers that he posted last season. The 29-year-old's season line now stands at a solid .274/..344/.464.

Forsythe went 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

After tallying only a single in his previous nine at-bats, Forsythe bounced back with his seventh multi-hit effort of September. The veteran is closing out the season in fine fashion, with a .313/.403/.463 line in 67 at-bats this month.
