Lind signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lind was cut loose by the Yankees on Friday after slashing .241/.302/.414 over 63 plate appearances with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to start the season. He'll report to Triple-A Pawtucket and serve as first base depth for the Red Sox.

Lind was released by the Yankees on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Lind signed a minor-league deal with New York in mid-April and was mostly providing organizational depth at first base. He was stationed at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before the Yankees decided to part ways with the 34-year-old.

Lind signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lind has latched back on with the Yankees after being released by the team in spring training. The veteran third baseman is expected to report to extended spring training before joining Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre or potentially even the big club. He'll provide an insurance option at first base should Greg Bird's recovery from an ankle injury take a turn for the worse, as it did last season.

Lind was released by the Yankees on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Lind had joined the team's camp as a non-roster invitee less than two weeks ago but will look to latch on with a new organization in the coming weeks following this move. In 2017, he hit .303 with a .513 slugging percentage over 116 appearances for the Nationals. In addition, he swatted 14 home runs and added 59 RBI as provided the ability to man left field as well as first base.

Lind signed a minor-league deal with an invite to spring training Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Lind hit a strong .303/.362/.513 in 301 plate appearances for the Nationals last season, his highest marks in all three categories since 2014. The veteran will likely be battling Tyler Austin for a role as a bench bat and the primary backup to Greg Bird. Austin is hardly an insurmountable obstacle, as he's hit just .236/.294/.447 in 136 career major-league plate appearances and is already 26, so Lind has a fairly clear path to a roster spot. His playing time will likely be limited initially, but if the oft-injured Bird goes down again for a portion of the 2018 season, Lind has a shot at temporary fantasy relevance as a power hitter in one of the best parks for lefty power in the league.

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.
