Dodgers News: Logan Forsythe Not Expected to Miss More Than Two Weeks



Logan Forsythe broke his toe earlier this week, forcing him to the disabled list. But he’s not expected to miss much time.

Forsythe will miss roughly two weeks, according to Dave Roberts.

“It’s not ideal,” Forsythe said about his DL trip. “But they are optimistic about it not being a typical break or fracture or whatever they called it. So it’s not four to six weeks. They’re saying maybe two weeks and get back out there.”

Forsythe will wear protective padding in his shoe when he returns, per the Orange County Register.

Forsythe’s bat was waking up before the injury. His OPS rose over .100 points in his last five games. Forsythe was bothered by a hamstring tweak last weekend, but it only took him out of the lineup for one day.

Acquired from Tampa Bay for pitching prospect Jose De Leon last winter, Forsythe is one of 11 Dodgers on the disabled list.
