Lind was released by the Red Sox on Wednesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reportedly had an opt-out in his contract which could be exercised if he wasn't on the major-league roster by today, so the two parties elected to part ways. Lind hit a strong .303/.362/.513 in a part-time role for the Nationals last season, though his minor-league numbers are poor this year, as he's struggled to a .245/.300/.424 line. That may or may not be enough for another team to take a shot on the 35-year-old as a potential platoon bat.

Lind has elected not to opt out of his minor-league contract with the Red Sox and will continue to play for Triple-A Pawtucket, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lind's contract contains a clause that would have allowed him to become a free agent if he weren't promoted to Boston by July 1, but he'll stick with the organization for at least as little while longer with the hope of earning his way back to the majors. The 34-year-old, who is slashing .263/.321/.455 across 109 plate appearances with Pawtucket, seems unlikely to receive the call to the big club so long as Mitch Moreland remains healthy and productive as Boston's primary first baseman.

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.
