Adam Lind (foot) was held out of Friday's rehab game with the Gulf Coast Blue Jays because his back was "a little tight," according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

It's sounds like the club is just being extra careful because of a rainy forecast Friday. "We decided to hold him out today," Anthopoulos said Friday. "We don’t anticipate any issues. Obviously if it’s sore or tight tomorrow we’ll adjust." The GM added that there was "no change to Lind’s status from what I said a day ago." Lind is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Adam Lind (foot) will likely be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

An earlier return hasn't been ruled out, but Monday seems to be the most likely scenario. Lind hit a pair of doubles in his first rehab game for the Gulf Coast Blue Jays on Thursday and looks to have put his fractured right foot behind him. "He didn't feel like he was going to need a whole lot of rehab games," Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. "He just felt his timing was there. He said he faced Neil Wagner and [Roberto] Osuna, who were throwing hard. His big thing was more velocity. He said he was seeing the ball great, he was hitting the ball very hard."

Aug 1 - 5:58 PM

Adam Lind (foot) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Thursday.

However, the Blue Jays could decide to wait until they begin a homestand on August 5. "He's running, he's still a little bit hobbled, but he's able to do a bit of everything," manager John Gibbons said of Lind, who has been sidelined since early July with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.

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.

Jul 11 - 11:11 AM

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

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.
