  • Adam Lind: Released by Red Sox

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

    The veteran reportedly had an opt-out in his contract which could be exercised if he wasn't on the major-league roster by Wednesday. 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.

  • Red Sox's Adam Lind: Sticking with Boston

    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.

    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 a 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.

  • Red Sox's Adam Lind: Joins Red Sox on minors deal

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

    Lind opted out of his minor-league contract with 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.

  • Adam Lind: Let go Friday

    Lind was released by the Yankees on Friday.

    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.

  • Yankees' Adam Lind: Re-signs with Yankees

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

    Lind has latched back on with the Yankees after being released by the team in spring training. The veteran first 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.

  • Adam Lind: Released by Yankees

    Lind was released by the Yankees on Wednesday.

    Lind had joined the team's camp as a non-roster invitee less than two weeks ago. He 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 while playing left field in addition to first base.

  • Yankees' Adam Lind: Joins Yankees camp

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

    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 at first base 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.

  • Adam Lind: Heads to free agency

    Lind will become a free agent after the Nationals declined to pick up his mutual option for 2018, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

    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.

  • Nationals' Adam Lind: Cranks out 10th homer of season Friday

    Lind went to 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Mets.

    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. He has an excellent .295 batting average to go along with a solid .490 slugging percentage in just 210 at-bats, and he's been a reliable fantasy option this year when in the lineup.

  • Nationals' Adam Lind: Out of lineup Thursday

    Lind is not in the lineup for Thursday's game in Houston, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

    Lind will retreat to the bench after starting six of the past seven games and 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.
