Things aren't going well for the Blue Jays, and they could get worse real soon. Designated hitter/first baseman Adam Lind has missed the past two games with a back injury and it doesn't appear to get responding to treatment. He reportedly has very strong spasms that won't go away. He's getting an MRI, but manager John Farrell doesn't sound optimistic for the near future.
“I think at some point in the near future we certainly wouldn’t rule it out at this point,” he said, when asked if Lind was headed to the disabled list. (Toronto Sun )
Lind has really been swinging a hot bat for the Jays -- giving them a potent two-man punch in the middle of the order with Jose Bautista. He's hitting .313 with seven home runs, 27 RBI, 19 runs and an .858 OPS. He was especially locked in the past two weeks, having hit .400 with six home runs and 15 RBI in his last 15 games before the injury.
