Adam Lind (back) will be re-evaluated after doing some drills Friday.

Lind was removed from Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. If he feels alright after doing drills Friday, he'll avoid the disabled list. If he doesn't, he could be the roster move the Blue Jays make when they activate Jose Reyes (hamstring) from the DL on Saturday.
Apr 18 - 5:14 PM

Although the Blue Jays are listing him as day-to-day, Adam Lind (back) admitted that it "would be a miracle" if he felt better Wednesday.

Lind was lifted from Tuesday's game with lower back tightness. It's sounding like an injury that could ultimately force him to the disabled list, but we'll just have to see how he recovers. At the very least, he figures to miss the next couple games.
Apr 16 - 12:38 AM

Adam Lind left Tuesday's game against the Twins with lower back tightness.

Lind dealt with back issues late last season, as well, though it's not clear if this is a flare-up of that ailment. The Blue Jays should provide an update on his status after the game.
Apr 15 - 10:50 PM

Adam Lind went 3-for-3 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Orioles.

Lind also walked twice, reaching base all five times he came to the plate. The first baseman/designated hitter has been one of the Blue Jays' best hitters in the first few weeks, as he's now batting .312 with a .450 on-base percentage. He was awarded for his strong start by hitting cleanup in Sunday's game, and it could continue -- meaning a boost to his counting stats -- if his hot hitting does as well.
Apr 13 - 4:26 PM

Adam Lind provided the bulk of the Jays' offense on Tuesday, blasting a three-run home run against the Rays.

Lind went yard in the first inning, staking starter Drew Hutchison to an immediate 3-0 lead. Lind also singled and walked, capping off a productive night. He had his best season in five years last season. For fantasy purposes, the RBI opportunities won't be so plentiful as he hits behind the homer-prone Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, who will end up clearing the bases frequently before Lind steps to the plate.
Apr 1 - 10:50 PM

Adam Lind doubled, singled and walked in his three plate appearances against the Rays on Wednesday.

Lind is 8-for-20 with a homer and four doubles this spring. He'll be the Blue Jays' No. 5 hitter against right-handers this year. The team would prefer to sit him versus lefties, but a platoon partner hasn't been settled on yet.
Mar 12 - 4:14 PM

Adam Lind belted a solo homer in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Lind went down and got a breaking ball from B.J. Rosenberg, putting it into the palm trees over the right field fence. The 30-year-old is coming off a strong .288/.357/.497 season and will look to maintain or improve upon it in his walk year.
Mar 4 - 9:34 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Blue Jays could trade Adam Lind this winter.

The club picked up Lind's $7 million option for 2014, but Cafardo believes they could then turn around and trade him. He writes that there is "some sentiment in the organization that he doesn’t fit what the Blue Jays are trying to build in terms of attitude." Lind had a big bounce-back season in 2013, batting .288/.357/.497 with 23 homers and 67 RBI.

Blue Jays picked up 1B Adam Lind's $7 million option for 2014.

Lind had a big bounce-back season in 2013, batting .288/.357/.497 with 23 homers and 67 RBI, making the $7 million option seem quite reasonable. He'll be back as the club's first baseman again and should make for a solid corner infield option in fantasy leagues.

Adam Lind was removed from Saturday's game against the Rays after his nagging back injury began acting up on him again.

Lind seemed to tweak something after lining a two-run single to left in the fourth inning, jogging very gingerly to first base afterwards. It's a pretty safe bet that he's taken him final plate appearance of the season.

Adam Lind (back) returned to the Blue Jays starting lineup and will hit third against the Rays on Saturday.

Lind has been nursing some soreness in his back in recent days, but claims he's healthy enough to return for the final two games of the regular season. The 30-year-old has enjoyed a nice season offensively, slugging 23 homers and driving in 64 runs while slashing .285/.355/.496 in 460 at-bats.

Adam Lind (back) is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Rays.

Lind is currently nursing some back soreness. He could pinch-hit Friday and hopes to return to the lineup Saturday.
Fri, Sep 27, 2013 05:37:00 PM

Adam Lind launched a pinch-hit, two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

Lind was called upon to hit for Kevin Pillar in the eighth inning, and smashed a Junichi Tazawa offering over the wall in left field to pull the Jays to within 5-3. He's had a terrific bounceback season offensively, slashing .285/.355/.501 with 23 long balls and 63 RBI in 445 at-bats.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 10:44:00 PM

Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a walk and homer in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Lind's strong bounce back season continues. After posting batting averages and OPS' of .237/.712, .251/.734 and .255/.728 over the last three years, respectively, he's up to a .280 average and .839 OPS in 2013. He's accumulated 21 homers and 58 RBI in 132 games.
