    News: Lind is batting .171 (7-for-41) with two doubles and three RBI over 21 spring training games.
    Impact: Lind inked a one-year deal with the Nationals this offseason to serve as a left-handed bench bat and backup first baseman. The 33-year-old has seen his offensive numbers dip in each of his past three big league seasons, and his slow start to spring is not an encouraging sign. He'll need to pick things up during the regular season if he hopes to receive semi-regular at-bats for the Nats.

    News: Lind says his struggles at the plate last season came from stubbornly trying to pull the ball through infield shifts rather than going the other way, The Washington Post reports. "He said he's gotten a little pull happy, so perhaps we can get him back to the center of the field, the big part of the ballpark," Nationals manager Dusty Baker said Friday.
    Impact: While Lind did pop 20 or more home runs in 2016 for the sixth time in his career, he also slashed .239/.286/.431 while pulling the ball 39.5 percent of the time, a far cry from his 2014 performance, when he hit .321/.381/.479 with a pull rate of just 31.4 percent. Ryan Zimmerman remains the Nats' starter at first base, but his own health issues and declining offense make him far from a sure thing. If Lind can get back to his 2014 form at the plate, he could force his way into a much larger role.

    News: Lind agreed to a one-year contract with the Nationals on Monday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.
    Impact: There were earlier reports speculating a deal, and it seems that the reports became true sooner than expected. Assuming he passes his physical, Lind will likely head into spring training with hopes of providing depth for the Nationals at first base and in the corner outfield spots while serving as one of their top lefty pinch hitters.

    News: Lind is nearing a contract agreement with the Nationals, Jim Bowden of ESPN reports.
    Impact: The veteran first baseman was dealt to the Mariners last year after a productive season in Milwaukee, although a disappointing season in Seattle has sapped the market of any interest for his services. If this deal goes through, Lind would likely compete with Clint Robinson for a spot as Ryan Zimmerman's backup at first base, although it would take a lot for the veteran to regain his standing as a fantasy-relevant first baseman.

    News: The Nationals agreed to a contract with Lind on Monday, according to multiple media reports.
    Impact: The 33-year-old Lind clubbed 20 home runs and had 58 RBIs in 126 games with the Mariners in 2016. It marked the sixth time in his career that Lind hit at least 20 homers.
