Forsythe is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. Forsythe is hitting just .190/.315/.262 in 237 at-bats against right-handed pitchers this season, so he'll get the day off with righty Kyle Hendricks throwing for the Cubs. In his stead, Chase Utley will start at second base and bat sixth.
Forsythe is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks on Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Forsythe is just 2-for-12 (.167) in his career against Zack Greinke, so he'll give way to Chase Utley at second base after starting the previous two games.
Forsythe is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres. Forsythe had been seeing regular playing time in place of the injured Justin Turner (finger), but his big day at the plate Monday (3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI) wasn't enough to keep him in the starting lineup following Turner's return. The 30-year-old will return to an undesirable platoon at the keystone with Chase Utley, likely drawing a start Wednesday against the left-handed Clayton Richard.
Forsythe is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports. Forsythe is hitting just .200/.304/.350 in 16 games this month, so he'll head to the bench for a second straight game as Chase Utley draws another start at the keystone in his place. He's now sat twice in a row against right-handed pitchers, which suggests he's settling back into the weaker side of a platoon with Utley.
Forsythe is not in the lineup Monday against the Phillies, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports. Forsythe will head to the bench as Chase Utley draws the start at second base in his return to Citizens Bank Park. The 30-year-old is hitting just .205/.311/.359 in 39 at-bats in September.
