It has been a tough season for Blue Jays DH/1B Adam Lind. Due to a demotion to the minors and injuries, Lind was participating in just his 92nd game with the Jays on Tuesday. He came into the game hitting .256 (81-for-316) with 11 home runs and 45 RBIs. Manager John Farrell, though, was full of praise when asked to assess his season. "Adam Lind has done a very good job since coming back," Farrell said. "For those who might have questioned where is he at in his career, I think he's realized there's a lot of productivity left with Adam Lind. Is it best taken advantage of with more at-bats against right-handers vs everyday, that's to be determined. But I think the work that he's done to get himself in a better frame of mind when he came back, physically he's maintained that regiment to keep his back stability in place and he's hitting the ball to all fields as we've seen recently with more consistency. He's done a very good job." BACK FOR MORE? One of the big questions facing the Jays organization is whether they will bring back their coaching staff back in 2013? Farrell suggested they would. "(General manager) Alex (Anthopoulos) and I have yet to finalize everything but there's nothing to suggest that changes will be made," he said.
Lind has lots left: Farrell
