Adam Lind slugged a go-ahead pinch-hit two-run homer in a 4-2 win over the Marlins on Opening Day.
The Nationals were down 2-1 going into the bottom of the seventh before Lind hit for Stephen Strasburg and took David Phelps deep. He received a curtain call after the go-ahead blast. Not bad for his first day at the office. Lind is projected to serve as a left-handed bench bat, but there’s the potential for more given Ryan Zimmerman’s injury history and recent underperformance.

Nationals signed 1B Adam Lind to a one-year, $1.5 million contract with a $5 million mutual option for 2018.

While the veteran first baseman posted a relatively uninspiring .239/.286/.431 triple-slash over 401 at-bats with the Mariners last season, he also walloped 20 home runs. He has managed at least that many dingers in six of the last eight seasons. With the Nationals he could see split work in a platoon with the right-handed hitting Ryan Zimmerman. All in all, this is a fine under-the-radar February signing.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal confirms that the Nationals have signed free agent Adam Lind to a one-year contract with a club option for 2018.

Lind struggled to the tune of a .239 batting average and .286 on-base percentage over 126 games with the Mariners in 2016, but he's reached 20-plus home runs in six of the last eight seasons and has always mashed right-handed pitching. He should fit nicely into a kind of platoon at first base with injury-prone right-handed-batter Ryan Zimmerman. Lind his typically performed well as a pinch-hitter too. It's a nice late-offseason addition for Washington.

Jim Bowden of ESPN reports that Adam Lind is close to signing with the Nationals.

Lind can spell oft-injured first baseman Ryan Zimmerman against some right-handed pitchers and operate as a strong left-handed bat off the bench for Washington. It's a good fit. No word yet on the financial terms, but this figures to be a one-year major league deal with a relatively low base salary. Lind, 34, slashed .239/.286/.431 with 20 home runs and 58 RBI in 126 games last season with Seattle.
Feb 13 - 1:27 PM

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Indians "have shown interest in a broad range" of first basemen, including Mike Napoli, Mitch Moreland, Adam Lind and Chris Carter.

Re-signing Napoli is no doubt the Tribe's first choice after he smacked 34 home runs and drove in 101 runs for them last season, but they're casting a wide net in their search. The defending American League champions are pretty left-handed heavy in their lineup right now, although that doesn't necessarily mean Carter would be their top choice after Napoli.

Adam Lind (finger) is back in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

He's back a day early from his sprained right index finger. Lind is at first base and batting sixth versus Doug Fister and the Astros.

Adam Lind (finger) isn't expected to play until at least Monday.

Lind tried to hit on Friday but his sprained finger was still bothering him. He'll try again on Saturday, though it doesn't look like he'll be available at all this weekend. Lind has shown decent power this year (20 homers), but his .232 average leaves a lot to be desired.

Adam Lind (finger) remained out of the Mariners starting lineup on Friday.

Lind sprained his right index finger on Sunday and hasn't played since. Dan Vogelbach will get another start at first base and will bat eighth against the Astros on Friday.

Adam Lind (finger) took swings in the cage on Wednesday.

Lind is fighting through a sprained right index finger suffered on Sunday. While he was able to take some swings on Wednesday, his finger remains "very sore," according to The Seattle Times' Ryan Divish. The Mariners were initially hoping that the veteran first baseman would be able to return on Thursday or Friday, but it might take a little longer here.
Wed, Sep 14, 2016 07:28:00 PM

Mariners manager Scott Servais said Monday that Adam Lind (finger) is likely to miss at least 3-4 games.

Lind suffered a sprained right index finger on Sunday and is fighting through some swelling, so the Mariners will give him some downtime. Dan Vogelbach was called up on Monday, but Dae-Ho Lee is getting the first crack to fill in at first base.

Adam Lind sustained a sprained finger in the first inning of Sunday's game against the Athletics.

He's listed as day-to-day but isn't expected to miss any significant time due to the injury. He went 1-for-1 and also drew a walk in Sunday's victory over the A's and is now hitting .232/.279/.443 on the season.

Adam Lind hit two homers, one of them a grand slam, Wednesday in leading the Mariners to an 8-3 win over the Rangers.

It was his fourth career grand slam. Lind now has 20 homers in 350 at-bats, matching his total from 502 at-bats with the Brewers last year. However, everything else remains down, down, down. His OBP is about 90 points lower than last year's .360, and he has just 14 doubles, compared to 32 last year. What he does have going for him is that he's been clutch; he's been quite good with RISP and positively terrible with none on. It's been quite the unusual year.

Adam Lind is not in the Mariners starting lineup for Friday night's contest against the Athletics.

He'll get a routine day of rest with opposing left-hander Sean Manaea on the hill. Dae Ho Lee will start in his place at first base and will bat fifth for the M's.

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.

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.
