Just a quick update after some confusion last night, as we now know that it’s definitely possible for the Jays to have placed Adam Lind on waivers, while still keeping him on the 40-man, meaning that the reports that the original story was false, premised on the notion that he’d have been removed from the roster on Wednesday, aren’t looking so hot right now.
Back to the guys who originally confirmed that Lind was, indeed, on waivers…

So… there’s that. It seems as though the Jays did put Lind on waivers, just to see if anyone was willing to bite on taking on his contract, but that they’ve kept him on the 40-man, in case he actually gets his shit together in Triple-A– and he isn’t doing so badly, with five hits and three walks in thirteen plate appearances, including a homer and a double. Vegas, baby!
