Blue Jays | Adam Lind feeling good

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind, who is hitting well this spring, said he dropped 10 pounds in the offseason and started doing yoga. "I think maybe it's given me more bat speed because my muscles are a little longer, more flexible," he said. "I'm not saying if you want to hit, you've got to do yoga. I didn't do it for hitting." Lind said he hasn't had any problems with his back while hitting .424 with a .488 on-base percentage in camp. Manager John Gibbons will give Lind a chance to prove he can be the everyday designated hitter, but if he struggles against lefties again, Gibbons has plenty of other options.

Fantasy Tip: There is real profit potential with Lind this year if he can stay healthy. His back injury likely sapped much of his power and was responsible for his demotion. His overall value will be determined by how well he hits southpaws, though.
