Adam Lind homered, doubled and walked twice versus the Rockies on Wednesday.

Lind is 6-for-10 with three walks to start his Brewers career. It won't be quite so rosy once the team starts facing some left-handers, but Lind has some mixed-league value as a middle-of-the-order guy in a good home run park.
Apr 8 - 11:55 PM

Adam Lind went 3-for-4 in Monday's Opening Day loss to the Rockies.

All three hits were singles. Lind might eventually hit against some lefties, but he produces against right-handed pitching and remains in a hitter-friendly ballpark with the move from Toronto to Milwaukee. He's an underappreciated option in mixed leagues.
Apr 6 - 5:35 PM

Adam Lind (back) is at first base again on Thursday.

Which is a good indication that his debut at first base Wednesday went well. Lind had been limited to DH duties in the Cactus League because of some lower back issues, but there are no restrictions now. He carries good power potential into 2015.
Mar 19 - 12:51 PM

Adam Lind (back) will start at first base Wednesday for the first time this spring.

Lind has been limited to DH duties this spring due to lower back issues, but he's finally ready to play the field. The expectation is that he'll play around 3-4 innings.
Mar 18 - 1:00 PM

Adam Lind (back) hopes to start at first base on Wednesday.

Lind has been limited to DH duties this spring due to lower back issues, but he's finally close to playing the field. The 31-year-old should at least see regular at-bats against right-handers this season and is a nice cheap power option in fantasy leagues.
Mar 17 - 3:53 PM

Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI single in Sunday's 12-5 loss to the Rangers.

Lind made his spring debut on Thursday, but he already appears to be in top form. He's now 4-for-8 in three Cactus League games. When healthy, Lind is close to a lock for 25 home runs, but he's only been able to play a full season in one out of the last three years.
Mar 15 - 7:38 PM

Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a solo home run on Saturday versus the Cubs.

Lind cranked a fourth-inning Pedro Strop offering out of the park to register his first round-tripper of the spring. The Brewers acquired Lind, their new first baseman, in a trade with the Blue Jays for Marco Estrada in November. Due to back issues as well as a broken foot, Lind was only able to hit six home runs last season, but he should be good for 20-plus if he can stay healthy in 2015.
Mar 14 - 7:59 PM

Adam Lind (back) went 0-for-2 with a walk in his Cactus League debut on Thursday.

Lind has been slowed in camp by back issues. He was used in the designated hitter spot Thursday and it appears that he will remain there for a little while before being allowed to play the field. "I haven't even really taken ground balls yet, so I think we're going to progress over the next two weeks slowly," Lind said. "I've got plenty of time in the baseball world."
Mar 13 - 10:38 AM

Adam Lind (back) expects to make his Cactus League debut on Wednesday.

Lind has been slowed early on in camp by back issues. Having problems with his back is nothing new for him, but he's felt much better in recent days and is ready to give it a go. He'll start at first base against right-handers for the Brewers this season.
Mar 9 - 6:20 PM

Adam Lind hopes to return to game action in a couple days after feeling improvement with his ailing back.

Lind has a long history of back issues and should have a pretty good idea of how to manage them at this point. It's not the start he wanted to get off to with his new team, but he should be alright in the long run.
Mar 8 - 12:32 PM

Adam Lind was held out of the Brewers lineup on Friday due to soreness in his back.

Lind has dealt with a long history of back issues, which flared up while taking grounders on Thursday. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke indicated that he believes the issue is minor and that Lind should return to the lineup in a couple of days.
Mar 6 - 8:43 PM

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.
