Logan Forsythe Hits The DL

MLB – Logan Forsythe

The Ray’s announced yesterday that second baseman Logan Forsythe will be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Saturday, tests showed that Forsythe has a hairline fracture in his left shoulder.

Forsythe was hit on the shoulder on May 10th by Felix Hernandez. No one knew how bad the injury was until Saturday’s tests.

The second baseman has a career .255 batting average with 39 home runs and 163 RBI’s. Forsythe has not played in more than 153 games in a season but has showed value this year with the Ray’s.

This is a blow to the Ray’s as Forsythe is leading the team in hits, walks, and slugging percentage. The Ray’s will call up Danny Farquhar from Triple-A Durham.
