LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers will be without Logan Forsythe for a while, on Wednesday placing the infielder on the 10-day disabled list with a broken big right toe. Utility man Chris Taylor was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Forsythe was hit on the left foot by a pitch in the first inning on Tuesday, and left the game after three innings. Initial X-rays proved inconclusive, which led to further examination on Wednesday.

Not that getting hit on the toe by a pitch is necessarily related, but Forsythe has missed time before with different foot injuries in his career. He missed the first two months in 2012 with a fractured left foot, and missed the first two months of the 2013 season with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
Taylor was one of the final cuts of spring training for the Dodgers, vying for the utility role that went to Kiké Hernandez. In 10 games for Oklahoma City, Taylor hit .233/.327/.442 with five extra-base hits and eight runs scored.
Taylor in Triple-A started five games at shortstop, three games in center field, once at second base and once at third base.
