Forsythe looking at few more days in protective boot

SAN DIEGO -- Logan Forsythe thought he would have been able to remove the boot from his right foot by now and begin a more active recovery process from the plantar fasciitis that has sidelined him all season. On Monday, however, Forsythe was still wearing the boot, but does expect to take it off soon.

"It was supposed to be last Wednesday," Forsythe said of removing the boot. "They said it will be this Wednesday instead. They added a week to it."

That week pushed back what could be a long recovery process for Forsythe. Even when he has the boot taken off, he said it would take two weeks before starting any kind of rehab assignment, which could last over a week.

Forsythe, who has been on the DL since March 31 with the injury, also missed time at the start of last season with a broken bone in the foot. He played in 91 games in 2012, batting .273 with six home runs and 26 RBIs.
