Adam Lind came off the bench to hit a walkoff three-run homer off David Robertson in the Mariners' 4-3 win over the White Sox on Monday.
Lind, who didn't start against Chris Sale, pinch-hit for Chris Iannetta with two outs in the ninth and delivered one of the biggest blasts of his career. It was his 14th homer, eight of which have come with men on. He's had a really rough year, but he's actually been strong in bigger situations, which is why he has 42 RBI. He's batting .206 with no one on, .265 with runners on and .300 with men in scoring position. Jul 19 - 1:33 AM

Adam Lind struck out twice in an 0-for-3 performance on Monday against the Astros.

The Mariners were held to just five hits and one run against Lance McCullers and the Houston bullpen. Lind is coming off a .190/.235/.444 June and while he had one big game over the weekend has struck out two times in three of four July contests. He's at .243/.274/.449 for the season.
Jul 4 - 5:07 PM

Adam Lind delivered a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Mariners a 4-3 win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Lind's 11th homer of the year came off Trevor Rosenthal. He has five homers in his last 11 games, though he's recorded just two other hits in that span. His average has actually tumbled from .259 to .234 during the month of June.
Jun 25 - 1:26 AM

Adam Lind went 3-for-6 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Tigers on Monday.

Lind hit the home run off Tigers starter Mike Pelfrey in the fifth inning. He's now got four homers in his last eight games and 10 overall. It's been largely feast or famine -- he's batting just .243/.277/.441 on the year -- and Lind regaining his power stroke could bode well for the 32-year-old's immediate future.
Jun 21 - 12:05 AM

Adam Lind hit his ninth home run of the season in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

Lind took Red Sox starter Rick Porcello deep in the second inning, his only hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. After a promising month of May, Lind has struggled in June and is slowly losing some at-bats to Dae-Ho Lee, who has acquitted himself very well in his first year in MLB. Lind, meanwhile, does have three homers in his last five starts. He's hitting .235/.271/.418 on the year.
Jun 18 - 7:41 PM

Adam Lind went 1-for-3 with a home run off the Rangers' Colby Lewis on Saturday night.

The blast provided the only run the Mariners would score all night. Lind has been platooning with Dae-Ho Lee at first base and there is talk that Lee will start to see some starts versus right-handed pitchers due to Lind's poor results this year. Lind's production has dropped off markedly in his first campaign in Seattle. He has a long track record of extreme platoon splits. His career OPS vs righties is .855 but only .590 vs lefties.
Jun 12 - 1:41 AM

Adam Lind went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI to help propel the Mariners past the A's 13-3 on Wednesday.

Between his steady track record and the Mariners' fine start, Lind hasn't lost playing time to Dae Ho Lee at first base. He really should consider himself lucky, given that he entered the night with a .216/.246/.319 line. Of course, even if Lee does seem capable, Lind was always the better bet as a starter against righties. He should be solid from here on out.
May 26 - 1:32 AM

Adam Lind hit a three-run homer off the Orioles' Tyler Wilson in Thursday's victory.

The opposite-field shot was aided a bit by the wind or probably would have been caught at the wall. Still, it was good hitting either way and we haven't seen much of that from Lind this year. He's at .224 with three homers and a 29/4 K/BB ratio in 107 at-bats. He's fortunate the Mariners have remained patient and haven't given his job to Dae-Ho Lee.
May 19 - 4:13 PM

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 and hit his first homer Wednesday against the Astros.

Lind has started hitting ahead of Kyle Seager in the order, not because he's off to a good start but because Seager is in the worst slump of his life. Even after tonight, Lind has just three extra-base hits, three RBI and one walk to go along with his adequate .259 average in 58 at-bats.
Apr 28 - 3:05 AM

Adam Lind is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday.

As he typically does against most southpaws, Lind will grab a seat on the bench against C.C. Sabathia on Saturday. Dae-Ho Lee will start at first base and bat seventh for the M's.
Apr 16 - 10:14 AM

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with an RBI single versus the Yankees on Friday.

Lind entered Friday’s action with just two hits in his first 21 at-bats this season, so this was nice to see. The 32-year-old is capable of helping in mixed leagues on the strong side of a platoon at first base, but he’s not as interesting after moving from Milwaukee to Seattle.
Apr 15 - 11:32 PM

Adam Lind is starting at first base in the Mariners' season opener Monday against the Rangers.

Texas is throwing ace southpaw Cole Hamels, but Seattle skipper Scott Servais wants to go with the left-handed-hitting Lind instead of newcomer Dae Ho Lee. Servais said Lee, a right-handed-hitting slugger out of South Korea, will start Tuesday versus Rangers left-hander Martin Perez. The full Opening Day lineup for the M's: Nori Aoki LF, Ketel Marte SS, Robinson Cano 2B, Nelson Cruz RF, Kyle Seager 3B, Franklin Gutierrez DH, Adam Lind 1B, Chris Iannetta C, Leonys Martin CF. Felix Hernandez is pitching.
Apr 4 - 12:50 PM

Adam Lind was scratched from Wednesday's Cactus League lineup with the flu.

There has been a nasty flu bug going around M's camp and now it has claimed Lind. He should be back to normal in the next couple of days.
Mar 16 - 12:00 PM

Mariners acquired 1B Adam Lind from the Brewers for RHPs Daniel Missaki, Carlos Herrera and Freddy Peralta.

All three prospects involved are under 20 years old. Lind struggles against left-handers, but he should see most of the playing time at first base for Seattle. He'll provide some pop and on-base ability in the middle of Scott Servais' lineup. The 32-year-old is owed $8 million in 2016 before becoming a free agent.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners have a deal to acquire Adam Lind from the Brewers.

Jerry Dipoto never rests. The Brewers are expected to receive a couple of lower-level minor league prospects in return. Lind fills a need at first base for the Mariners and will make just $8 million in 2016 before becoming a free agent. The 32-year-old batted .277/.360/.460 with 20 homers and 87 RBI this past season.
