Forsythe is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Forsythe will take a seat after going a collective 2-for-16 while starting four of the previous five games at either corner-infield spot. Danny Santana and Isiah Kiner-Falefa appear to be manager Chris Woodward's preferred options at first and third base, respectively, so Forsythe doesn't look like he'll be bound for an everyday role in the near future.
Forsythe started at third base and went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Wednesday's 9-7 win over the Mariners.
Forsythe replaced Asdrubel Cabrera, who was eventually designated for assignment following the game. That obviously opens up playing time at third base, which will provide an opportunity for Forsythe, but the Rangers plan to use Isiah Kiner-Falefa as the primary third baseman for the remainder of the season. Forsythe will continue to move around the infield at third, second and first base.
Forsythe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.
Forsythe's string of five consecutive starts will come to an end while Danny Santana replaces him at first base. Though Santana looks like an everyday player at this point, Joey Gallo's wrist injury will still open up playing time for Santana in the outfield. As a result, Forsythe may be in line for at least a part-time role at first base until Gallo is back in the fold.
Forsythe started at first base and went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored in Thursday's 11-3 win over the Athletics.
Forsythe has started all three games at first base since the Rangers demoted Ronald Guzman to Triple-A Nashville. He's been in the lineup against right-handers and left-handers. He and Danny Santana will share first base, although Santana, who has been a more dangerous hitter, may eventually land there most games, though Santana can also be used in the outfield following Joey Gallo's injury.
Forsythe started at first base and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Mariners.
With the Rangers sending Ronald Guzman back to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Forsythe took over at first base. He and Danny Santana are expected to share the position going forward, with Santana likely to grab a bigger share of the playing time.
Forsythe went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 19-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Forsythe slotted in at first base in place of the left-handed-hitting Ronald Guzman against Arizona southpaw Robbie Ray. Guzman is not getting many opportunities against lefties, so guys like Forsythe and Danny Santana have been filling in at first base. Forsythe, a pleasant surprise for the Rangers earlier this season, is batting just .152 over his last 24 games.
Forsythe went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 15-6 loss to the Twins.
The veteran infielder went more than two months without leaving the yard, with Friday's homer being his first since April 28. On the year, Forsythe's slashing .262/.365/.415 with four home runs and 32 RBI in 61 games, limiting his fantasy appeal to AL-only and deeper OBP formats.
Forsythe started at third base in place of the injured Asdrubel Cabrera (back) and went 0-for-2 with two walks in a 9-4 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
This was the second straight game Cabrera missed, and it presumably would have been his third had Monday's game not been postponed. Forsythe, who moves around the infield regularly as a fill-in, should continue to get time at third base while Cabrera is unavailable. He has one hit over his last 17 at-bats.
Forsythe will start at second base and bat seventh Sunday against the Rays.
Rougned Odor (hamstring) will be on the bench for a second straight day, allowing Forsythe to claim his fifth start in six contests. Odor's setback isn't viewed as a major concern, so as long as he avoids the injured list, Forsythe will transition back into a utility role before long.
Forsythe started at third base Tuesday in place of the suspended Asdrubel Cabrera. He went 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in a 5-3 win over Detroit.
With Cabrera's suspension still extending another two games, Forsythe becomes the top option at third base for the time being. After hitting with regularity over the first two months, Forsythe is batting just .171 over 35 at-bats in the month of June.
Forsythe went 1-for-3 with a walk and two RBI in Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Red Sox.
Ronald Guzman took a seat against Boston left-hander David Price, so the right-handed hitting Forsythe took over at first base. The move by manager Chris Woodward was a prescient one, as Forsythe drilled a two-run single as part of the Rangers' four-run first inning. The single snapped a string of 17 at-bats without a hit for Forsythe, who has settled into a backup role since injured starters returned to action. He's appeared in eight of the last 15 games, with six of them starts.
Forsythe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.
With a .302/.406/.475 slash line through 165 plate appearances this season, Forsythe has been exceptionally productive when given the chance to play, but his opportunities have dwindled with the Texas infield back to full strength. Since Elvis Andrus returned from the 10-day injured list May 25, Forsythe has started in only five of the Rangers' nine contests.
Forsythe will start at first base and bat fifth Sunday against the Angels.
Forsythe will draw his fifth consecutive start, but his path to an everyday role nonetheless appears more blocked than it was a week ago. The Rangers brought Elvis Andrus (hamstring) back from the 10-day injured list Saturday, no longer leaving Forsythe the top option for starts at shortstop.
Forsythe entered Saturday's game as a pinch runner after Danny Santana was hit by a pitch on the ankle.
Santana, who filled in at shortstop for the injured Elvis Andrus (hamstring), told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com following the game the ankle "hurts a lot." That suggests he could miss a few days, which means the hot-hitting Forsythe (10 hits in his last 19 at-bats) could return as Andrus' fill-in the next few games.
Forsythe is out of Saturday's lineup against the Cardinals.
He has been swinging a red-hot bat, tallying 10 hits in 19 at-bats over his last five games. Danny Santana will start at shortstop and hit seventh in his stead.
Forsythe started at shortstop in place of the injured Elvis Andrus (hamstring) and went 2-for-3 with a walk, two doubles and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Royals.
Forsythe is expected to get the bulk of starts while Andrus is on the 10-day injured list. Wednesday's effort was Forsythe's third straight multi-hit game, during which he's 7-for-11 with five doubles, a triple and two RBI. He's been a nice surprise for the Rangers, slashing .316/.414/.541 through 29 games, and represents a potential fill-in at second base if manager Chris Woodward wants to replace a disappointing Rougned Odor (.146/.221/.493).
Forsythe went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple, a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's 11-5 loss to the Royals.
He got the start at first base before shifting over to shortstop after Elvis Andrus (hamstring) exited the game, and Forsythe raised his SLG over 50 points with the extra-base barrage, finishing the night with a .305/.402/.516 slash line. The veteran utility player has seen action at all four infield spots already this season, and if Andrus' injury ends up requiring an IL stint, Forsythe's playing time should tick up.
Forsythe is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Benched for the third time in five games, Forsythe's role appears to be on the decline with Danny Santana settling in as manager Chris Woodward's preferred option at first base. Forsythe's ability to play all over the infield should help him stick in a part-time role for now, but his opportunities could take another hit when Ronald Guzman (hamstring) returns from the injured list, likely at some point during the upcoming week.
Forsythe is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates.
Forsythe will head to the bench for what appears to be a routine day off following a string of 20 straight starts. The veteran infielder slashed .278/.369/.486 with a trio of homers and one stolen base over that stretch. In his place, Danny Santana is starting at first base and hitting seventh.
Forsythe went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in Sunday's 14-1 victory over Seattle.
Forsythe launched a three-run shot in the eighth inning to make it 13-1, giving Seattle no hope of storming back. The veteran infielder has already surpassed his two-homer total in 416 plate appearances last season. He's also collected 14 RBI alongside an .848 OPS.
