Adam Lind (back) said Monday that he's feeling better and expects to return to the lineup Tuesday.

Lind is missing a second straight start because of a tight lower back. He thinks he could be available to pinch-hit, though, and is aiming to return to action Tuesday. Lind is a good bet to be traded this week, with the Cardinals being one club that's in on him.

Adam Lind (back) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Monday.

He's sat out the last two contests after exiting Saturday's game with lower back tightness. It's not considered more than a day-to-day thing at the moment, but it's worth noting that Lind has a history of back issues. The first baseman is known to have received trade interest from the Cardinals, among other clubs, but they'd obviously like to see him healthy first. Shane Peterson is at first base Monday.

Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have discussed a potential trade with the Brewers involving first baseman Adam Lind.

St. Louis has needed a boost at first base ever since Matt Adams went down in late May with what's likely to be a season-ending quad injury. Mark Reynolds has struggled in a full-time role and the Cardinals aren't sure what to expect yet from rookie Stephen Piscotty. Lind, a left-handed hitter who's sitting on an .865 OPS, 16 home runs, and 58 RBI through 92 games, would be an absolutely perfect fit. The 32-year-old is making $7.5 million this season with a relatively-inexpensive $8 million club option for 2016.

Adam Lind (back) is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

Lind exited Saturday's game with lower back tightness and is considered day-to-day. Jonathan Lucroy is at first base, with Martin Maldonado behind the plate.
Jul 26 - 12:53 PM

Adam Lind left Saturday's game in the second inning after experiencing lower back tightness.

With trade rumors swirling around Lind, the flareup comes with pretty awful timing. Shane Peterson took over at first base and may have to start there on Sunday. Lind struck out in his only at-bat Saturday against Diamondbacks right-hander Rubby De La Rosa.
Jul 25 - 9:43 PM

Adam Lind went off in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Indians, finishing the contest 4-for-5 with a two-run homer and four total RBI.

Lind took Indians starter Cody Anderson to task in the first inning when he launched a two-run homer off the rookie. He added an RBI single in the second and an RBI double in the ninth, ultimately driving in four of the five runs scored by the Brewers on the day. The long-time Blue Jay is posting a quietly fantastic season and is slashing .293/.374/.515 with 16 homers and 58 RBI over 307 at-bats.
Jul 22 - 5:48 PM

Adam Lind is not in the Brewers starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against the Pirates.

As is often the case, Lind finds himself on the pine against a tough left-hander. Jonathan Lucroy will slide over and play first base while Martin Maldonado does the catching for the Brewers on Saturday.
Jul 18 - 1:52 PM

Adam Lind hit his 15th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Lind hit a solo shot off Braves reliever David Aardsma in the eighth inning to cut the deficit to one, but the Brewers wouldn't get any closer. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. Lind has been one of the few bright spots for the Brewers in the first half, batting .299/.377/.525 in his first National League go-round. His 52 RBI rank him among the league leaders, and he'll surely continue to draw interest as the trade deadline nears.
Jul 8 - 12:00 AM

Adam Lind went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a two-run home run as the Brewers extended their winning streak to eight games on Sunday versus the Reds.

Lind has knocked in a run in each of his last nine ballgames, homering four times with five multi-hit games in that span of time. On Sunday, he gave the Brewers some insurance with an RBI single in the fifth inning, then homered in the seventh to put the game out of reach for the Reds. Lind is batting a productive .298/.373/.518 with 14 home runs and 51 RBI on the year.
Jul 5 - 3:58 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Angels have had trade discussions with the Brewers regarding Adam Lind and Gerardo Parra.

Rosenthal notes that the talks about Parra came before former general manager Jerry Dipoto resigned and that "nothing was close" to getting done. Still, both Parra and Lind make a lot of sense for the Halos since they're in need of left field and designated hitter help. The Brewers have caught fire of late, but they still figure to be sellers at the deadline and both Lind and Parra likely will be on the move.
Jul 5 - 10:40 AM

Adam Lind went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.

Lind connected for his 13th homer when he took Reds starter Josh Smith deep in the fourth inning. He also added a single and walked twice to finish the day 2-for-3. Toiling away for a bad Brewers team, Lind is quietly posting a .295/.370/.507 triple-slash line with 13 homers and 48 RBI. After some lean years with the Blue Jays, his bat has come back in style over the last two-going-on-three seasons.
Jul 4 - 11:34 PM

Adam Lind broke a 7-7 tie with an RBI single in the 11th inning on Thursday, propelling the Brewers to an 8-7 victory over the Phillies.

Lind finished the night 2-for-6 with a run scored and two RBI. Prior to his 11th inning heroics, he delivered an RBI single as part of a three-run uprising in the first inning against Phillies starter Chad Billingsley. Lind is enjoying a terrific season in the middle of the Brewers lineup, slashing .295/.365/.502 with 12 homers and 46 RBI.
Jul 2 - 10:51 PM

Adam Lind hit a two-run home run in a 2-for-5 effort as the Brewers topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

Lind got the scoring started, taking Aaron Harang yard in the first inning for a two-run shot. The first baseman now has 12 home runs, 44 RBI, and a .294/.366/.506 triple-slash line on the season.
Jul 1 - 10:09 PM

Adam Lind is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

He'll take a seat against left-hander Cole Hamels. Jason Rogers will start at first base and bat seventh.
