Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 19, against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Fantasy Tip: Check back for an update on how John Gibbons will assemble his lineup without the option to use Lind as the designated hitter. Lind might only get a few at-bats during the series in Milwaukee.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) is in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 12, after being activated from the disabled list. He'll hit cleanup and serve as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays may use Lind frequently at DH, at least until Edwin Encarnacion returns from the DL later this week. Once Encarnacion is back, though, Juan Francisco will likely find it tougher to crack the lineup on a daily basis.

The Toronto Blue Jays activated 1B Adam Lind (foot) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Get Lind back into your lineups immediately. His return probably will hurt the playing time of Juan Francisco, who will now likely enter into some sort of platoon with Danny Valencia at third base when Lind isn't used as the designated hitter.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (back, foot) will report to the team Tuesday, Aug. 12, according to manager John Gibbons.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (back, foot) isn't playing in a rehab game because of back tightness Friday, Aug. 8, but general manager Alex Anthopoulos said it's nothing to be concerned about. Anthopoulos continues to say that Lind could return to the team early next week. "No change to Lind's status from what I said a day ago," Anthopoulos said. "He was scheduled to have two ABs and he got them …"
Fantasy Tip: Whether Lind can return to rehab action this weekend will be the determining factor if his timetable is still on track for a return early next week from the DL. Stay tuned on his progress.

Blue Jays | Adam Lind has tight back
Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (back, foot) said his back was "a little tight" after his rehab game Thursday, Aug. 7, according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos. With rain in the forecast Friday, Aug. 8, the team will hold him out.
Fantasy Tip: This is a clear setback for Lind. He was previously expected to return from the DL early next week, but this will definitely push back his timetable to maybe later in the week.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) is 'days away,' according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos.
Fantasy Tip: Lind crushes right-handed pitching, but rarely plays against lefties. He has upside in the majority of formats, if you can manage your roster to sit him against southpaws.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed 3B Brett Lawrie (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique strain. The team also recalled RP Rob Rasmussen from Triple-A Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Lawrie goes right back on the disabled list and could miss the rest of the month of August. Munenori Kawasaki and Danny Valencia could receive time at the position, but Juan Francisco could become the regular starter when Adam Lind returns to the lineup. Kawasaki and Valencia probably are short-term options in AL-only leagues while Francisco could help in some mixed leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) doubled twice and scored and was replaced after his two at-bats in a rehab game with the Gulf Coast Blue Jays Thursday, Aug. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Lind apparently looked pretty darn good in his first game. If he doesn't have any setbacks with his foot, he could return from the DL this weekend.
