Brewers | Adam Lind takes the field

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 15:14:59 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) played first base Wednesday, March 18, and he said he will play first again Thursday, March 19.

Fantasy Tip: Lind is a proven hitter against right-handed pitching (.293/.349/.510 career slash line), but he has just 892 plate appearances against southpaws over his nine-year career. He is a late-round flier in mixed leagues, but if he receives an opportunity to hit lefties and succeeds, there is serious upside for fantasy owners. It is a nice calculated risk, because his success against right-handed pitchers is reliable. Make sure to check back for updates over the spring, especially with Lind's history of nagging back issues.

Brewers | Adam Lind to play Thursday

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 10:38:56 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) has been out with a back issue, but he will serve as the designated hitter in spring action Thursday, March 12, but he'll rest again Friday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries and bad luck in 2014 limited Lind to just six home runs. That means most fantasy drafters will gladly pass on him. However, even in a first base platoon situation, Lind could rebound nicely and approach the 20-homer mark in hitter-friendly Miller Park. He's a deep sleeper for his power in the late rounds of deep mixed leagues.

Brewers | Adam Lind to return Wednesday

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 20:44:19 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) said Monday, March 9, that he expects to make his Cactus League spring debut Wednesday, March 11, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Lind's injury does not appear to be serious. He has dealt with back issues in the past, so if you plan to roll with him in the regular season you need to have plenty of depth on hand.

Brewers | Adam Lind to miss time

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 18:11:07 -0800

Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) is sidelined due to a back injury. Manager Ron Roenicke said Friday, March 6, that he hopes it will only be a few days until Lind can return.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that the injury does not sound serious, but it isn't great that it is early March and a guy with back issues in the past is sidelined. Fantasy owners will want plenty of depth if they plan to include Lind on their roster.

Brewers | Adam Lind dealing with back issue

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 15:35:39 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Adam Lind (back) did not play Friday, March 6, because his back "flared up," according to manager Ron Roenicke.

Fantasy Tip: Lind dealt with back issues last season, too. So this is a situation to monitor this spring. Lind is a proven commodity against right-handed pitching (.293/.349/.510 career slash line), but he has never been given a real opportunity against southpaws. If he proves capable of hitting against left-handed pitching and receives everyday at-bats, he'll be a viable late-round flier in mixed leagues heading into the 2015 season.

Brewers | Jonathan Lucroy to play some 1B

Tue, 03 Feb 2015 13:31:10 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy is expected to be used at first base when the team faces left-handed pitchers. C Martin Maldonado would be behind the plate, and 1B Adam Lind would sit the bench. Lucroy will work out at first base during spring training in order to become familiar with the position. Lucroy has played 211 1/3 innings at first base in his career, and he's made 25 starts there in the last two years.
