Adam Lind went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI to help propel the Mariners past the A's 13-3 on Wednesday.
Between his steady track record and the Mariners' fine start, Lind hasn't lost playing time to Dae Ho Lee at first base. He really should consider himself lucky, given that he entered the night with a .216/.246/.319 line. Of course, even if Lee does seem capable, Lind was always the better bet as a starter against righties. He should be solid from here on out. May 26 - 1:32 AM

Adam Lind hit a three-run homer off the Orioles' Tyler Wilson in Thursday's victory.

The opposite-field shot was aided a bit by the wind or probably would have been caught at the wall. Still, it was good hitting either way and we haven't seen much of that from Lind this year. He's at .224 with three homers and a 29/4 K/BB ratio in 107 at-bats. He's fortunate the Mariners have remained patient and haven't given his job to Dae-Ho Lee.

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer Wednesday against the Astros.

Lind has started hitting ahead of Kyle Seager in the order, not because he's off to a good start but because Seager is in the worst slump of his life. Even after tonight, Lind has just three extra-base hits, three RBI and one walk to go along with his adequate .259 average in 58 at-bats.
Apr 28 - 3:05 AM

Adam Lind is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday.

As he typically does against most southpaws, Lind will grab a seat on the bench against C.C. Sabathia on Saturday. Dae-Ho Lee will start at first base and bat seventh for the M's.
Apr 16 - 10:14 AM

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with an RBI single versus the Yankees on Friday.

Lind entered Friday’s action with just two hits in his first 21 at-bats this season, so this was nice to see. The 32-year-old is capable of helping in mixed leagues on the strong side of a platoon at first base, but he’s not as interesting after moving from Milwaukee to Seattle.
Apr 15 - 11:32 PM

Adam Lind is starting at first base in the Mariners' season opener Monday against the Rangers.

Texas is throwing ace southpaw Cole Hamels, but Seattle skipper Scott Servais wants to go with the left-handed-hitting Lind instead of newcomer Dae Ho Lee. Servais said Lee, a right-handed-hitting slugger out of South Korea, will start Tuesday versus Rangers left-hander Martin Perez. The full Opening Day lineup for the M's: Nori Aoki LF, Ketel Marte SS, Robinson Cano 2B, Nelson Cruz RF, Kyle Seager 3B, Franklin Gutierrez DH, Adam Lind 1B, Chris Iannetta C, Leonys Martin CF. Felix Hernandez is pitching.
Apr 4 - 12:50 PM

Adam Lind was scratched from Wednesday's Cactus League lineup with the flu.

There has been a nasty flu bug going around M's camp and now it has claimed Lind. He should be back to normal in the next couple of days.
Mar 16 - 12:00 PM

Mariners acquired 1B Adam Lind from the Brewers for RHPs Daniel Missaki, Carlos Herrera and Freddy Peralta.

All three prospects involved are under 20 years old. Lind struggles against left-handers, but he should see most of the playing time at first base for Seattle. He'll provide some pop and on-base ability in the middle of Scott Servais' lineup. The 32-year-old is owed $8 million in 2016 before becoming a free agent.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners have a deal to acquire Adam Lind from the Brewers.

Jerry Dipoto never rests. The Brewers are expected to receive a couple of lower-level minor league prospects in return. Lind fills a need at first base for the Mariners and will make just $8 million in 2016 before becoming a free agent. The 32-year-old batted .277/.360/.460 with 20 homers and 87 RBI this past season.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners are close to acquiring Adam Lind from the Brewers.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reported early Wednesday morning that the two sides had made "very substantial progress" toward a deal. It now appears that they are near the finish line. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman hears that Mike Zunino's name has come up in trade discussions, though it's unclear whether he's in the deal.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 08:31:00 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are among the teams trying to trade for Adam Lind of the Brewers or Mitch Moreland of the Rangers.

The Orioles have already added Mark Trumbo this winter and remain in talks to retain free agent Chris Davis, but they are keeping an eye on possible alternatives. Lind has reportedly drawn interest from at least a dozen teams and is more likely to be moved than Moreland.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 12:26:00 PM

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that "at least a dozen teams" have checked in on Adam Lind.

The Mariners are one of them, but they have some competition from first base/DH-needy ballclubs. Still, Haudricourt considers Lind as "good as gone." Lind hit .277/.360/.460 with 20 homers and 87 RBI for the Brewers in 2015 and is owed just $8 million in 2016.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 09:13:00 AM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners are trying to get Adam Lind from the Brewers.

It's already been a whirlwind offseason for the M's under new general manager Jerry Dipoto, and they're not done dealing. Lind hit .277/.360/.460 with 20 homers and 87 RBI for the Brewers in 2015 and is owed just $8 million in 2016. He'd make sense for any team with a need at first base or DH.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 03:25:00 PM

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal wrote that according to a source, there's been "lots of activity [in trade talks]" regarding Adam Lind.

The Brewers picked up Lind's $8 million club option in early November. The 32-year-old first baseman's bat has shown no signs of slowing down. In 2015, he slashed .277/.360/.460 with 20 homers and 87 RBI. While there's nothing imminent on the trade front, it would make sense for the rebuilding Brewers to actively consider trade possibilities given Lind's age.

Brewers exercised 1B Adam Lind's $8 million club option for 2016.

It was an easy call after Lind batted .277/.360/.460 with 20 home runs and 87 RBI this past season. The rebuilding Brewers could always consider trading the 32-year-old this offseason or by midseason next year. He would likely generate plenty of interest.
