Updates from Friday, July 11
The Blue Jays' official Twitter feed has bad news regarding Lind's foot:
Sportsnet's Shi Davidi has an update on Lind:
It was bad enough news for the Toronto Blue Jays when Edwin Encarnacion went to the disabled list with a strained right quadriceps, but Shi Davidi of Sportsnet updated fans with even more disappointment Wednesday regarding Adam Lind:
Lind has been a productive member of the Blue Jays lineup all season and sports a .320 batting average with four home runs and 27 RBI. Now that he is going to miss significant time, Toronto’s lineup has two gaping holes in it going forward.
Scott MacArthur of TSN provided something of a potential silver lining to the situation:
It will certainly be interesting to see if the Blue Jays make any moves to compensate for this recent attrition as the trade deadline approaches, because they have a serious chance to win the American League East.
Losing Lind certainly hurts the Jays' chances at reaching the postseason, but it may just spur them to make a move. Stay tuned for more updates as they develop.
