Adam Lind (foot) is scheduled to take batting practice in Florida on Tuesday.
Lind landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot. After receiving a second opinion, it was estimated that he could return in about 2-3 weeks, so there's a chance he'll be back in the Jays' lineup in early August if he can avoid setbacks.

Adam Lind (foot) is expected to return in 2-3 weeks after undergoing a second opinion.

Lind was initially expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks, so obviously this is great news. He'll wear a walking boot on his fractured right foot for the next 5-7 days before then beginning his rehab. Dan Johnson has replaced Lind on the roster.

Blue Jays placed 1B/DH Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 8, with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.

Adam Lind will miss the next six to eight weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.

Lind played in games as recently as Monday, but an MRI revealed the fracture after the first basemen felt some discomfort in the foot. It's a huge blow for the struggling Blue Jays, as they're already missing Edwin Encarnacion for the next few weeks.
Jul 9 - 8:05 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Monday that Adam Lind and Cole Gillespie will platoon for a while.

Lind is batting a robust .377/.442/.582 against righties this season but has just two hits in 28 at-bats against lefties. The 30-year-old has always been benched often against southpaws, so this is no surprise. Gillespie, who was claimed off waivers on Saturday, is a career .230/.295/.329 hitter over 270 plate appearances.
Jul 7 - 8:18 PM

Adam Lind is not in the Blue Jays lineup on Saturday against the White Sox.

It's nothing more than a routine day of rest as Jays manager John Gibbons is stacking his lineup with right-handed bats against opposing southpaw Chris Sale. Lind is enjoying a strong season at the plate, hitting .340/.415/.519 with four homers and 26 RBI through his first 52 games.
Jun 28 - 10:14 AM

Adam Lind went 3-for-5 with an RBI double and a two-run single in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

Lind gave the Jays a 2-0 lead with an RBI double in the first inning. Melky Cabrera was able to score on the hit due to a fielding error. In the fourth, Lind made it 5-0 with a two-run single. Lind has hit safely in 10 out of his last 12 games and now carries a fantastic .342/.417/.523 slash line with four home runs and 26 RBI.

Adam Lind had a three-run homer, an RBI single and a walk versus the Yankees on Monday.

Lind was making his first start in nine days after missing time with a foot injury, but all that time off didn't slow his bat. While he has just four homers in 143 at-bats, he's hitting .343 this season.
Jun 23 - 10:19 PM

Adam Lind grounded out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Lind missed a fourth straight start due to a bone bruise in his right foot, but obviously it's a good sign that he was able to pinch-hit. He should return to the lineup sometime over the weekend.

Adam Lind (foot) is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Thursday.

Lind is currently dealing with a bone bruise in his right foot, but the Blue Jays are trying to hold off on a decision about the disabled list. Edwin Encarnacion will play first base Thursday while Dioner Navarro serves at the DH and Erik Kratz catches Drew Hutchison.

A CT scan has confirmed that Adam Lind has a bone bruise on his right foot.

Lind was spotted with a walking boot on his right foot Sunday, but he's avoided a fracture. Consider the designated hitter day-to-day.

Adam Lind (foot) was spotted with a walking boot on his right foot Sunday.

X-rays Saturday on Lind's foot came back negative, but he could undergo further testing to see if anything else is wrong. Obviously, at the very least he's not going to be available Sunday. The Blue Jays should provide an update on his status before long.
Jun 15 - 10:52 AM

X-rays on Adam Lind's foot came back negative.

Lind was forced from Saturday's loss to the Orioles with a bruised right foot. He had a noticeable limp in the clubhouse afterward but told reporters that he wants to play Sunday. It's obviously not a major concern.
Jun 14 - 7:56 PM

Adam Lind left Saturday's game against the Orioles because of a bruised right foot.

Lind was 1-for-3 with a run scored before departing with what will likely be considered a day-to-day injury. Dioner Navarro replaced him at designated hitter.
Jun 14 - 7:00 PM

Adam Lind went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI and four runs scored as the Jays steamrolled the Royals 12-2 on Saturday.

It's the first time in Lind's career that he's scored four times in a game. In fact, he hadn't even scored three times in a game since April 26, 2011. The three hits raised his average to a surprising .351. Sitting out against lefties has paid off for him after so many attempts to use him as a full-time player in spite of his limitations.
