Lind will become a free agent after the Nationals declined to pick up his mutual option for 2018, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lind bounced back after a disappointing 2016 campaign, hitting .303/.362/.513 with 14 homers in 116 games (301 plate appearances) for the Nationals last season. Still, he was owed $5 million next season and didn't have a direct avenue to everyday at-bats, so the Nationals decided to part ways with the 34-year-old. He joins a large group of first basemen available in free agency this offseason, so he could have some difficulty finding a favorable deal.

Lind went to 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Lind launched his 10th bomb of the season in the ninth inning, but it wasn't enough, as the Nationals lost by a score of 4-2. Despite the low home run total, he has an excellent .295 batting average to go along with a solid .490 slugging percentage, and he's been a reliable fantasy option this year.

Lind is not in the lineup for Thursday's game in Houston, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lind will retreat to the bench after starting six of the past seven games, going 3-for-20 during that span. Although Alejandro De Aza continues to see regular starts in right, Lind remains a solid contributor off the bench while earning regular starts in left and at first base.

Lind is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against the Angels, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After receiving playing time in left field over the last several games, Lind will take a seat against left-handed pitcher Tyler Skaggs of the Angels. In his place will be Howie Kendrick, who will bat leadoff.

Lind will start in left field and bat fifth in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday against the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lind has been deployed at first base or designated hitter for much of his career, but the Nationals will deploy him in left field for the fourth consecutive contest due to the team's extensive injuries in the outfield. With all of Adam Eaton (knee), Jayson Werth (toe), Ryan Raburn (back), Trea Turner (wrist) and Bryce Harper (knee) on the disabled list and Howie Kendrick recently having gotten over a back issue, Lind should continue to handle at least semi-regular work in the outfield for the time being, at least against right-handed pitching. Considering Lind is hitting .317 with nine home runs in 198 plate appearances this season, he could provide some sneaky value in deeper leagues where he's still available.

Lind will start in left field and bat sixth Monday against the Marlins, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's the sixth start in seven games for Lind, who has been able to carve out some regular run in the Nationals lineup thanks to injuries thinning the outfield ranks. While Lind is miscast as a left fielder, he's proven more than capable at the plate this season, batting .320 with nine home runs and 37 RBI in just 170 plate appearances. He's worth a look in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues while the at-bats are available for him.

Lind hit a two-run home run Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Lind's blast off Rockies starter Jon Gray in the fifth inning was all the Nationals would need to earn their 62nd win of the season. The veteran is now hitting a solid .320 through 150 at-bats in a depth role this year, though his pedestrian nine homers and 37 RBI bring down his fantasy value.

Lind went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Playing in an AL park afforded the Nats the opportunity to get Lind's red-hot stick into the lineup as their DH -- he's now 7-for-10 since the All-Star break, and has homered in each of his last two starts.

Lind went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Sunday's rout of the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

While Ryan Zimmerman's resurgence this season has kept Lind on the bench more often than not, the 34-year-old is putting together an impressive year in his own right, slashing .312/.373/.544 with seven homers and 31 RBI in only 142 plate appearances. Should the injury bug find Zimmerman again, Lind would become a priority add in almost every fantasy format.

Lind has a .300/.365/.508 slash line with six home runs in 137 plate appearances this season.

EDGE Analysis

The Nationals reserve first baseman has been one of the best bench options in the league this season, and is slashing .357/.419/.714 as a pinch hitter in 28 at-bats. Lind has a handful of appearances in left field as well, but his usage will likely stay the same if first baseman Ryan Zimmerman remains relatively healthy. When he receives the starting nod, the 33-year-old could prove to be a solid plug-and-play option in most formats.
