Dave Roberts left open the possibility of Logan Forsythe returning this weekend, but the team will give him time. Forsythe will begin his rehab assignment at Rancho Cucamonga Tuesday.

Forsythe has been sidelined with a broken toe. He’ll DH for the Quakes then take it from there, according to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA.

Forsythe was the Dodgers’ most significant offseason acquisition. The team parted with prospect Jose De Leon to add the right-handed Forsythe to a lefty heavy lineup. It was also believed Forsythe would lead-off frequently, though Dave Roberts wanted to try different lineups. The team’s offensive inconsistencies will probably put Forsythe in the lead-off spot more often.

Forsythe was rounding into form before his injury. The Dodgers, now 14-13, won’t rush him back. The team’s depth has already been tested, and it wants to make sure Forsythe is 100 percent before he returns to Los Angeles.

Cody Bellinger was impressive again Monday
