News: Lind (foot) is expected to take batting practice Tuesday, the National Post reports. Impact: Dealing with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot, Lind remains on track to return in late July or early August. Prior to hitting the DL, Lind was hitting .320/.389/.489 with 27 RBI and 16 doubles.(RotoWire, )

News: Lind (foot) is now expected to miss only 2-to-3 weeks, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Impact: Initially handed a 6-to-8-week estimate after being diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot, Lind had his timetable virtually cut in half after a follow-up exam with Dr. Robert Anderson. The 30-year-old Lind will be confined to a boot for approximately a week, but if his rehab goes off without a hitch, he could be back with the Blue Jays by late July or early August.(RotoWire, )

News: Lind (foot) was placed on the 15-day DL on Friday. Impact: Lind is expected to miss 6-8 weeks due to a non-displaced fracture in his right foot, so his movement to the disabled list comes as no surprise. He'll rest and rehab the broken foot until roughly September, with the hopes of returning to help the Blue Jays with a potential postseason run. Look for Juan Francisco, Jose Bautista and Nolan Reimold to split reps as the DH slot in Lind's absence. Dan Johnson was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move, and could see some reps at first base while Lind is on the shelf.(RotoWire, )

News: The Toronto Blue Jays placed Lind on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a broken right foot and recalled Dan Johnson from triple-A Buffalo. Impact: Lind has been dealing with foot pain for weeks and aggravated the injury last Saturday at Baltimore. The injury originally was diagnosed as a bone bruise. In 61 games this season, Lind has a .320 average with four homers and 27 RBIs. (STATS, 1:56am)
Wed. July 9, 2014
News: Lind says he's likely out 6-8 weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his right foot, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports. Impact: Lind's mother apparently nudged him into getting the MRI on Wednesday, which revealed the fracture. He hasn't been in the lineup for the last two games, so he may have suffered the injury during Monday's contest. Juan Francisco, Jose Bautista and Nolan Reimold are all options to slot in at DH over the next two months, and the Jays should place Lind on the DL soon.(RotoWire, )
Tue. July 8, 2014
News: Lind is out of the lineup Tuesday. Impact: It was announced Monday that Lind will be a part-time player for the time being, sitting against southpaws due to a .071 average against them this season. Dioner Navarro will start at DH Tuesday, but Cole Gillespie also figures to get some starts at DH against lefties.(RotoWire, )

News: Lind and Cole Gillespie will be in a platoon at designated hitter until one of them gets hot, according to manager John Gibbons, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports. Impact: This comes as no surprise, as Lind's splits this season are cavernous. He's crushing righties to the tune of a .377 batting average, while posting an .071 average against southpaws, so it's probably for the best that he takes the strong side of a platoon in leagues that factor in batting average.(RotoWire, )
