Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) might return from the 15-day disabled list sometime during the team's upcoming road series against the Houston Astros starting Thursday, July 31. However, it is possible the team waits until Aug. 5 when the team returns home, too. "He's running, he's still a little bit hobbled, but he's able to do a bit of everything," manager John Gibbons said Monday, July 28.
Fantasy Tip: Keep Lind reserved in all fantasy leagues until he is officially activated and able to play one full game without any setbacks. That might not be until early August.

Toronto Blue Jays 1Bs Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps) and Adam Lind (foot) are unlikely to be back by the team's current road trip, according to manager John Gibbons. Encarnacion is still resting after a minor setback and Lind is taking light batting practice.
Fantasy Tip: You'll have to stay a bit more patient with both players, but once they're back from the disabled list, you'll need to get them both back into your starting lineups immediately.

Fantasy Tip: There is still no definite timetable for either player, but owners should add them to their starting lineups when they come off the disabled list.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) is no longer wearing a boot on his fractured right foot, according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) received a second opinion on his right foot fracture, which set his timetable for returning at two to three weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Lind's lack of power this season has limited his fantasy impact. He also struggles mightily against left-handed pitching and rarely plays with a lefty on the mound. The timetable seems optimistic. Lind is only worth stashing (outside of a disabled list slot) in AL-only formats and deep mixed leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture. Toronto recalled 1B Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo and designated RP Bobby Korecky for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson should be an AL-only asset, at least in a platoon role, and may earn fleeting deep mixed utility. Lind should be out for at least one month.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) has a fracture in his foot, and he's expected to miss six to eight weeks. He will go for a second opinion.
Fantasy Tip: Lind will land on the DL, obviously. He was hitting .320 but with only four homers this season. With Edwin Encarnacion also out, Juan Francisco will likely see the majority of starts at first base. Francisco should already be owned in the majority of leagues.
