D. . . . Logan Forsythe

It’s been a somewhat lackluster start to Forsythe’s Dodger tenure. He ended up on the disabled list due to a few injuries, highlighted by a fractured toe. After batting .295 in April, Forsythe dipped to .160 in May in just 25 at-bats after his stint on the disabled list.

Despite this, he has shown signs of life as of late. He had a walk-off hit against the Cardinals in extra innings, and he blasted his first Dodger home run of the season. So it looks as if a turnaround is on the horizon. Luckily, the Dodgers had enough depth to cover his absence, but they will most certainly need his bat down the stretch.

With more consistent playing time and hopefully with better health, Forsythe will at least get back to his .260+ batting average he’s displayed over the past three years.

Final slash line in May: .160/.344/.320
