Dodgers News: Logan Forsythe Doesn’t Anticipate DL Stint

Logan Forsythe injured his hamstring in Saturday night’s victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The seriousness is unknown, but it was enough to remove him from the game and keep him out of Sunday’s lineup.

Forsythe said he shouldn’t need to go on the disabled list. He also may be available to pinch hit Sunday.

The Dodgers’ most significant offseason addition, Forsythe was just hitting his stride. He’s already flashed on several eye-opening defensive plays, and he’s lived up to his “heart and hustle” label. He’s played second and third base in the early season.

Forsythe was acquired to address three needs: lead-off hitter, second baseman and right-handed bat. His versatility has allowed the Dodgers to shift him around the infield and lineup, making him a perfect fit for what the organization values.
