Rays expect to have Forsythe back vs. Phils

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Logan Forsythe will be back in the lineup Thursday, when the Rays play the Phillies in Clearwater, Fla.

Forsythe left Tuesday's Phils-Rays game, a 5-2 Tampa Bay loss, after getting hit by a pitch in the bottom of the first. He told reporters after the game that "everything's all right," and that he had no concerns about his status.

"I think it feels all right," Forsythe said. "It just got me in a good spot, and they just wanted to be extra cautious and come in and get a look from the doc. Everything's cool right now."
