Adam Lind will make a $2 million salary if he is called up to the Yankees.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today also reports that there are three opt-outs for Lind, as he can elect free agency if he's not on the New York roster on May 1, June 1 and July 1. The 34-year-old first baseman was released by the Yankees in the middle of spring training, but re-signed with New York last week to a minor league deal. He'll have to hit in his time with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but if Tyler Austin continues to hit, it may not matter.

Yankees re-signed Adam Lind to a minor league contract.

Lind was released in the middle of March after signing a previous minor league deal with the Yankees. The 34-year-old first baseman will likely head to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and depending on his production there -- and the production of Tyler Austin -- he could be up with New York before the start of May. There will likely be an opt-out on the deal, as well.

Yankees released 1B/OF Adam Lind.

Lind signed a minor league contract with the Yankees earlier this month but never stood a chance of cracking their Opening Day roster. The veteran first baseman was 3-for-15 (.200) this spring in the Grapefruit League. He'll try to latch on with a different organization before Opening Day.

Yankees signed 1B Adam Lind to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

General manager Brian Cashman referred to Lind as an "insurance policy" and noted that the veteran first baseman has an opt out in his contract at the end of spring training. Lind sported a .303/.362/.513 batting line with 14 home runs as a part-time player with the Nationals last season but was unable to land a major league deal. He looks like a bench bat for the Bombers, assuming he doesn't opt out of his contract.

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, Adam Lind is among the first base options expected to be considered by the Mets.

The Mets don't appear fully-sold on Dominic Smith as their regular first baseman, so Lind would give the club some insurance at first base. It's worth noting that he also saw time in left field with the Nationals, though ideally he wouldn't be used out there much. The 34-year-old rebounded from a down 2016 season by hitting .303/.362/.513 with 14 homers over 301 plate appearances this past season.

Nationals announced first baseman Adam Lind's mutual option for 2018 was declined.

Exactly who declined the $5 million option is unclear at this point, but it made sense for Lind to move on to see if he can find a starting job against righties. He was great in his limited action for the Nationals, hitting .303/.362/.513 with 14 homers in 267 at-bats. Still, the team might not have wanted to pay him $5 million for 2018, given that Ryan Zimmerman had a healthy and productive 2017 and Lind is only useful at first base (he started 25 games in left field last season, but that didn't go so well).

Adam Lind went 2-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in a win over the Mets on Saturday.

Lind got the Nats on the board with the two-run shot in the fourth inning, his second homer in as many games. It was also a historic shot for the Nationals, setting a franchise record for homers in a season with 204. Lind has chipped in 14 of those while batting .310/.369/.527 in 112 games.

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Mets on Saturday.

He drove in a run in the first inning with a fielder's choice grounder, then came around to score on an Adrian Sanchez knock. Lind added an RBI single in the second frame. The veteran first baseman has been a part-time player this year but has really come through when given the chance to play. He has a .299 batting average with 10 home runs and 45 RBI in just 238 plate appearances.

The 34-year-old has been useful in a part-time role this season, batting .295/.348/.490 with 10 homers and 43 RBI through 90 games. He’s hit all of his homers against right-handers.

Adam Lind went 3-for-3 and drove in a run during Saturday's defeat of the Giants.

He pounded an RBI double in the sixth inning to expand his team's lead. He also drew a walk in the contest. The 34-year-old has served as a part-time player this year but has been highly productive when given the chance to play. The former Blue Jay, Brewer and Mariner has a .317/.364/.522 slash line with nine home runs and 39 RBI in 180 at-bats.

Lind launched his go-ahead two-run homer off of Rockies' starter Jon Gray in the fifth inning, and it proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He finished the evening 1-for-3. Lind has excelled in a reserve role for the Nationals this season, slashing .320/.371/.556 with nine homers and 37 RBI.
