Adam Lind has always been formidable against right-handed pitchers, and 2015 was no exception. While Lind did very little with his 112 plate appearances against lefties, he posted a .291/.380/.503 slash line against righties. Having been traded by the Brewers to the Mariners, Lind may not get as many opportunities to face lefties, since they can use Jesus Montero as his platoon partner. That could be a good thing for Lind, especially in Rotisserie, as his batting average should improve. While he is more of a deep league first baseman for owners in points formats, Lind is worth a late round pick in standard mixed Roto leagues.
Lind was traded to the Mariners on Monday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. After losing Mark Trumbo, the Mariners were in search of a another first baseman to fill the void. It appears Adam Lind is the guy, though his splits would suggest he's a much better option against right-handed pitching (.291/.380/.503 with 20 home runs) than against southpaws (.221/.277/.298 with no homers). The veteran remains a solid defender, but could see a dip in production by moving to Seattle after playing his career in two hitter-friendly environments to this point.
Brewers first baseman Adam Lind is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds. With the left-handed Brandon Finnegan set to take the hill for the Reds, Lind will take a seat Friday. Jason Rogers will continue to see starts at first base in his stead against southpaws, batting fifth.
