Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that he wants to see Adam Lind against left-handers in the spring.
The assumption was that Lind would sit against most left-handers, as he has been awful against them for a few years running, but Roenicke wants to see for himself. We still see this shaking out as a platoon situation, but fortunately Lind will be on the strong side. Feb 24 - 12:39 PM

Brewers acquired 1B/DH Adam Lind from the Blue Jays for RHP Marco Estrada.

The 31-year-old has slashed .301/.366/.490 with 29 homers and 107 RBI over 239 games the past two seasons with the Jays and will add a nice left-handed power dimension to the middle of the Brewers lineup. He is a below-average defender at first base though, and should get plenty of days off against tough southpaws.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Brewers have agreed to a deal to acquire Adam Lind from the Blue Jays.

No word yet on the potential return that the Blue Jays would receive in the deal. Cotillo notes that the deal is pending physicals, but that Lind and any other potential players involved are being notified that it's a done deal. Lind has made a living by mashing right-handed pitching and provides an element of left-handed power that the team was sorely lacking.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports that the Blue Jays are nearing a trade that would send Adam Lind to the Brewers.

No word yet on what the potential return package might be. With a logjam at first base/DH for the Blue Jays, Lind has been a very popular name on the trade front recently. He would represent a nice cost-effective addition for the Brewers who are severely lacking in left-handed power.

Blue Jays exercised 1B Adam Lind's $7.5 million option for 2015.

The 31-year-old slugger was limited to just 96 games during the 2014 campaign, but slashed a terrific .321/.381/.479 with six homers and 40 RBI. He has been drawing a lot of interest on the trade market and could conceivably be donning a new jersey for the 2015 season.

According to Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun, the Blue Jays have received calls about Adam Lind.

"I hear the Blue Jays are getting a lot of interest on Lind and not just from American League teams," an unnamed executive told the Sun. "I’ve heard three or four clubs." Lind struggles mightily against left-handed pitching, but he mashes righties and is only due $7.5 million in 2015 and $8 million in 2016 (via a pair of club options). That relatively low price tag makes him an attractive trade target for teams that want to upgrade offensively but won't be able to compete for the bigger bats on the open market this winter.

Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays are expected to pick up Adam Lind's $7.5 million option for 2015.

The Jays wound up picking up his $7 million option for this season after vaguely telling Lind last September that they would. He's looking for "a little more clarity" than he had last year. Lind has battled injuries this season and hit just homers over 92 games, but he's batted .324/.386/.489 overall so it would be a surprise if the Jays let him go.

Adam Lind is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup for Saturday's afternoon tilt against the Yankees.

It's simply a routine day of rest for Lind against opposing left-hander Chris Capuano. John Mayberry Jr. will get the start in his place at first base and bat sixth for the Jays, with Edwin Encarnacion serving as the designated hitter.

Adam Lind belted his fifth home run of the season and plated three run, leading the Blue Jays to a 6-3 win over the Rays on Saturday.

Lind drove home a run on an infield single as part of a three-run uprising in the third inning, then tagged Brad Boxberger for a two-run homer in the seventh to give the Jays the lead for good. He has been outstanding when on the field this season, slashing .328/.394/.492 with five long balls and 35 RBI in 256 at-bats.

Adam Lind (back) could rejoin the Blue Jays on Monday, provided his back feels better over the weekend.

He was held out of his minor league rehab game on Friday due to tightness in his back, but Blue Jays manager John Gibbons indicated that additional rehab games weren't necessary.

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.
