After aggravating his hamstring on Saturday, forcing him to leave the game early, there was worry that he might be forced to go on the disabled list. Forsythe sat out Sunday’s game but said he was available to come off of the bench if he was needed.
Thankfully, Logan Forsythe will return to the Dodgers lineup on Monday night against the Diamondbacks.

So far in 2017, Forsythe has provided the Dodgers with a catalyst that they needed at the top of the order, batting .310 and providing them with quality defense at second base.

Rob Segedin will also be starting at first base, fresh off of a call from Oklahoma City.
Segedin was putting up some huge stats for Oklahoma City, batting .324 with two home runs and a .342 on-base percentage.
With Scott Van Slyke making the major league club out of spring training, Segedin was forced to play at triple-A. Hopefully Rob Segedin can perform well during his time here so that he does not get sent back down!
