Blue Jays designated hitter Adam Lind left Tuesday’s game with lower-back tightness.

Although manager John Gibbons said he was merely “day-to-day,” Lind was not looking or talking like a player who would be on the field any time soon.

The 30-year-old was in obvious discomfort after the game, walking gingerly and struggling to tie his shoes as he changed into street clothes inside the visitors’ clubhouse.

Lind, who has dealt with chronic back pain and spent time on the disabled list in both 2011 and 2012 with back issues, was also visibly dejected.

“I was just running to second base after my walk and it just grabbed,” he said, adding that the feeling was similar to what he felt in 2011.

Lind said he had been feeling some tightness for the last few days, but nothing like he felt in the fourth inning on Tuesday. He stayed in the game for one more at-bat — singling and coming around to score amid the Jays’ five-run sixth-inning rally that was the catalyst to their 9-3 victory over the Twins — but the pain was too much to bear after that.
