Blue Jays | Adam Lind placed on DL

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 19:40:57 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed 1B Adam Lind (back) on the 15-day disabled list because of a back injury and recalled 1B Juan Francisco from Triple-A Buffalo. The team also transferred 2B Maicer Izturis (knee) to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Francisco may get most of the playing time while Lind is out of the lineup and should be an option for most AL-only owners.

Blue Jays | Adam Lind hoping to avoid DL

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:36:57 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are hoping 1B Adam Lind (back) can avoid a trip to the disabled list, but he hasn't looked much better two days after suffering a lower back injury, and he has been walking around gingerly. The team will wait at least another day before making a decision. 1Bs Dan Johnson or Juan Francisco would be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo if Lind is put on the shelf, and the designated hitter would turn into a platoon with the likes of C Dioner Navarro and OF Colby Rasmus.

Fantasy Tip: Both Johnson and Francisco are intriguing for AL-only managers for their power, but Francisco is younger and has more upside.

Blue Jays | Moises Sierra, Erik Kratz in front

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 07:48:37 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Moises Sierra and C Erik Kratz are in good position to make the club as bench options. Sierra has an advantage over OF Anthony Gose because Sierra is out of options and hits right-handed, which would complement DH Adam Lind for platoon duties. Melky Cabrera would be the backup center fielder if Sierra makes the club. Kratz is beating out C Josh Thole because he's been SP R.A. Dickey's primary receiver. Still, the backup backstop competition probably will last until the end of camp.

Fantasy Tip: Sierra is an intriguing AL-only dice roll because of his power-speed mix. Gose's speed could be just as useful for hopeful, cautious bidders.

Blue Jays | Adam Lind already in camp

Wed, 19 Feb 2014 19:37:47 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind reported to camp well before the Thursday, Feb. 20, deadline for all players, and he has already been working with new hitting coach Kevin Seitzer.

Fantasy Tip: Lind is a depth fantasy addition at this point, worth grabbing in the middle rounds of AL-only leagues, and the final rounds in mixed formats.

Blue Jays | Moises Sierra candidate for platoon

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 18:04:50 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays OF Moises Sierra appears to be the early favorite to platoon with 1B Adam Lind next season. Lind is expected to see a bulk of the starts against right-handed pitching, and there is a need for someone to fill the role against left-handed pitching vacated by OF Mark DeRosa (Retired). Sierra recently started taking grounders at first base. Since he is out of options, a platoon with Lind appears to be the only way he could stick with the organization. "Sierra could be that guy," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Friday, Dec. 6.
