However, as manager Bud Black said, that move -- retroactive to March 22 -- doesn't equate to a setback for Forsythe, who still wears a protective boot to keep his foot in place as it heals.
"If it does, it might only be impacted by a few days, based on what I've heard from our medical staff," Black said.
That means the soonest Forsythe could return would be May 22, though he has a long way to go first.
"He's got to do Spring Training again," Black said.
That means once Forsythe is cleared for baseball-related activities, he'll likely go to the team's complex in Arizona for extended spring trraining before he can begin a Minor League rehabilitation stint.
