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.

The first baseman scored each of the Jays' first two runs. Lind has taken only 250 plate appearances this season, but is slashing .317/.380/.471 with four home runs and 29 RBI.

Aug 9 - 11:22 AM

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.
Aug 8 - 1:09 PM

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 7 - 9:12 PM

Adam Lind (foot) doubled twice Thursday in his first rehab game in the Gulf Coast League.

Lind hit a double to left field in his first at-bat and a double to right field in his second at-bat. He was then lifted from the game. Lind, who's been out since early July with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot, is about a week away from being activated.
Aug 7 - 1:43 PM

Adam Lind (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays on Thursday.

It's not clear how many rehab games he'll need before being activated, but he seems likely to rejoin the Blue Jays within a week or so. Lind has been on the shelf since early July with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.
Aug 6 - 3:11 PM

Adam Lind (foot) could begin a rehab assignment early- to mid-next week.

He should only need a few rehab games before being activated. Lind is expected to beat Edwin Encarnacion (quad) back from the disabled list. He's been out since early July with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot.
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.
