Following today's 9-0 speedball drubbing at the hands of Mark Buerhle and the Marlins of Miami, the Toronto Blue Jays recalled first baseman Adam Lind from Triple A Las Vegas, while activating Ben Francisco and demoting Mike McCoy and David Cooper back to the Minor Leagues. Sergio Santos has been placed on the 60 day Disabled List to make room for Lind's return to the 40 man after clearing waivers early this month.


Over 138 plate appearances for the Blue Jays Minor League affiliate in Triple A, Lind put up a rather astounding .476 wOBA, getting on base more than 45% of the time while slugging a mean .658.

Those are gawdy numbers, no doubt. And it's certainly better that he put up those kind of results than not putting up those kind of results, but Lind's problems have never been about not being able to feast off of lesser pitching. It's been about swinging and missing or making bad contact off of breaking pitches and against left handed pitching.
