Latest Update Lind (foot) will take batting practice on Tuesday Mon Jul, 21, 04:48 PM
A natural hitter with a sweet, lefty swing and a superb batting eye, he sprays the ball all over the field, piling up doubles, home runs and RBI while also batting for average.
Flaws: : Lacks mobility, which limits him defensively and on the bases. Strikes out his fair share as well. Can go into prolonged hitting slumps.
Lind is expected to return in about two week's time. His original prognosis was six-to-eight weeks but it was shortened to three. Continue to monitor his progress as the jays will be anxious to get his bat back in their DH slot.Analyst: Howard Bender
Lind's estimated time of recovery from the foot injury was reduced to 2-to-3 weeks right before the All Star break, so heading for a rehab stint next week puts him right on schedule. How many games he'll need in the minors will be determined then, so expect him to still be almost two weeks away from now.Analyst: Howard Bender
This is quite the change from the six-to-eight week timetable originally given. We're happy to split the difference and say it's going to be roughly a month before Lind is ready to return. They'll likely try and push it on the early side which could be detrimental to Lind in the long run, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.Analyst: Howard Bender
Lind will likely be out anywhere from six-to-eight weeks which means an early to mid-September return. Considering how little time that leaves you with him, he can probably be dropped in most re-draft leagues. Dan Johnson will apparently take his spot as a DH.Analyst: Howard Bender
