Adam Lind finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI as the Nationals stomped the Reds on Sunday.

Lind cranked a two-run bomb off Reds reliever Ariel Hernandez in the top of the fifth inning and he put the Nationals up 14-4 with an RBI single in the top of the eighth. The veteran first baseman is sporting an excellent .312/.373/.544 batting line with seven home runs and 31 RBI in 60 games this season.
Jul 16 - 5:18 PM

Adam Lind hit a two-run home run in Saturday's win over the Mets.

Lind got a start at first base spelling Ryan Zimmerman and helped the cause with the two-run shot in the eighth inning. It was his only hit in four at-bats. In a part-time role this season, the 33-year-old has six homers and 26 RBI with a .344/.413/.622 line in parts of 42 games.

Adam Lind mashed a three-run home run and finished 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored against the Athletics on Saturday.

He lifted a Daniel Mengden offering over the wall with Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman aboard in the third inning. Lind hasn't gotten much playing time this year but has been highly productive when given the chance. He is batting .344/.423/.639 with four homers and 20 RBI in 69 at-bats.
Jun 3 - 8:55 PM

Adam Lind went 1-for-3 and plated two runs on Sunday as the Nationals fell to the Padres.

Lind plated his club's first run on a fielder's choice in the first inning. He then delivered an RBI double in the fifth. He has been impressive in limited action this season, slashing .340/.400/.604 with three homers and 16 RBI.
May 28 - 8:56 PM

Adam Lind slugged a go-ahead pinch-hit two-run homer in a 4-2 win over the Marlins on Opening Day.

The Nationals were down 2-1 going into the bottom of the seventh before Lind hit for Stephen Strasburg and took David Phelps deep. He received a curtain call after the go-ahead blast. Not bad for his first day at the office. Lind is projected to serve as a left-handed bench bat, but there’s the potential for more given Ryan Zimmerman’s injury history and recent underperformance.
Apr 3 - 4:12 PM

Nationals signed 1B Adam Lind to a one-year, $1.5 million contract with a $5 million mutual option for 2018.

While the veteran first baseman posted a relatively uninspiring .239/.286/.431 triple-slash over 401 at-bats with the Mariners last season, he also walloped 20 home runs. He has managed at least that many dingers in six of the last eight seasons. With the Nationals he could see split work in a platoon with the right-handed hitting Ryan Zimmerman. All in all, this is a fine under-the-radar February signing.
Feb 15 - 8:21 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal confirms that the Nationals have signed free agent Adam Lind to a one-year contract with a club option for 2018.

Lind struggled to the tune of a .239 batting average and .286 on-base percentage over 126 games with the Mariners in 2016, but he's reached 20-plus home runs in six of the last eight seasons and has always mashed right-handed pitching. He should fit nicely into a kind of platoon at first base with injury-prone right-handed-batter Ryan Zimmerman. Lind his typically performed well as a pinch-hitter too. It's a nice late-offseason addition for Washington.
Feb 13 - 2:15 PM

Jim Bowden of ESPN reports that Adam Lind is close to signing with the Nationals.

Lind can spell oft-injured first baseman Ryan Zimmerman against some right-handed pitchers and operate as a strong left-handed bat off the bench for Washington. It's a good fit. No word yet on the financial terms, but this figures to be a one-year major league deal with a relatively low base salary. Lind, 34, slashed .239/.286/.431 with 20 home runs and 58 RBI in 126 games last season with Seattle.
Feb 13 - 1:27 PM

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Indians "have shown interest in a broad range" of first basemen, including Mike Napoli, Mitch Moreland, Adam Lind and Chris Carter.

Re-signing Napoli is no doubt the Tribe's first choice after he smacked 34 home runs and drove in 101 runs for them last season, but they're casting a wide net in their search. The defending American League champions are pretty left-handed heavy in their lineup right now, although that doesn't necessarily mean Carter would be their top choice after Napoli.

Adam Lind (finger) is back in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

He's back a day early from his sprained right index finger. Lind is at first base and batting sixth versus Doug Fister and the Astros.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 01:49:00 PM

Adam Lind (finger) isn't expected to play until at least Monday.

Lind tried to hit on Friday but his sprained finger was still bothering him. He'll try again on Saturday, though it doesn't look like he'll be available at all this weekend. Lind has shown decent power this year (20 homers), but his .232 average leaves a lot to be desired.

Adam Lind (finger) remained out of the Mariners starting lineup on Friday.

Lind sprained his right index finger on Sunday and hasn't played since. Dan Vogelbach will get another start at first base and will bat eighth against the Astros on Friday.

Adam Lind (finger) took swings in the cage on Wednesday.

Lind is fighting through a sprained right index finger suffered on Sunday. While he was able to take some swings on Wednesday, his finger remains "very sore," according to The Seattle Times' Ryan Divish. The Mariners were initially hoping that the veteran first baseman would be able to return on Thursday or Friday, but it might take a little longer here.
Wed, Sep 14, 2016 07:28:00 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Monday that Adam Lind (finger) is likely to miss at least 3-4 games.

Lind suffered a sprained right index finger on Sunday and is fighting through some swelling, so the Mariners will give him some downtime. Dan Vogelbach was called up on Monday, but Dae-Ho Lee is getting the first crack to fill in at first base.
