Adam Lind 1B SEA 5 days ago

Lind went 2-for-4 with his first homer of the year Wednesday in a loss to Houston.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Over the first 17 games of the year, Lind was hitting .241 with just two extra-base hits and two RBI, so this was a pleasant change of pace for his fantasy owners, who expected something a little closer to last year's 20-homer, 87-RBI performance. Of course, Seattle's a tougher place to hit than Milwaukee and Lind is basically guaranteed to sit against lefties.

Lind (illness) is in the lineup for Saturday's split-squad game against the Diamondbacks, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After spending a little time away with flu-like symptoms, Lind rejoined the team Thursday and is now slated to return to first base and the No. 5 spot the batting order. Lind homered and doubled Monday in his last spring game, giving him five extra-base hits in 16 at-bats. He is expected to be strictly platooned this season, starting exclusively against right-handed pitching.

Lind was traded to the Mariners on Monday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After losing Mark Trumbo, the Mariners were in search of a another first baseman to fill the void. It appears Adam Lind is the guy, though his splits would suggest he's a much better option against right-handed pitching (.291/.380/.503 with 20 home runs) than against southpaws (.221/.277/.298 with no homers). The veteran remains a solid defender, but could see a dip in production by moving to Seattle after playing his career in two hitter-friendly environments to this point.

Lind's $8 million contract option for 2016 was exercised by the Brewers on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 32-year-old proved a bargain at his $7.5 million price tag for 2015, as he hit .277/.360/.460 with 20 homers, 87 RBI and a career-high 66 walks in 149 games. Lind made the decision to pick up his option an easy one for Milwaukee, though the club still figures to entertain offers for the first baseman's services over the winter.
