Rays 2B Logan Forsythe piling up multi-hit games


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe apparently doesn't like one-hit games. It's either multiple hits or forget it.

At least that's his recent trend. Forsythe has more than one hit in five of his last seven games and is hitless in the other two. It all adds up to a hot streak in which he is batting .481 (13-for-27).

Most of those hits, however, have gone to waste. He has scored just one run during that stretch and has only one RBI over his last six games.

Forsythe has been a pleasant surprise for a team that has also been a pleasant surprise. His .288 average is at its highest point since June 2.

Logan Forsythe 'keeping the line moving' for Rays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rays 2B Logan Forsythe looking for consistency at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Rays second baseman Logan Forsythe is working to become a more consistent hitter, regardless of his role on the team, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"I think consistency depends on how you feel at the plate if the rhythm and timing are there," Forsythe said. "Last year I think that my swing was at a good point to where the rhythm and timing were there going into playing every day, so when I got into that consistency of more at-bats, more playing time, my swing kind of came out more. It's not hit or miss, but I think there's certain times in the season when the swing is there and it's not there. That's baseball."

Forsythe hit .223 with 26 RBI in 301 plate appearances in 2014. He is feeling good about his approach with Opening Day right around the corner.

"There's time when you feel good about your swing. It comes based on results you get in a game,” Forsythe said. "That feedback doesn't necessarily always have to be, 'Oh I got a hit.' Or, "I drove a run in.' Or 'I hit a home run.' As long as you put the barrel to the ball, it can be a line drive out or a web gem made on you, that confidence is boosted, and the more opportunity you get when your confidence is up, you're going to get better results."
