Mariners to acquire Adam Lind from the Brewers

Mariners camp will include “Hi, my name is….” nametags.

There is no word yet who the Mariners are sending to the Brewers, but they will need to create one space on the 40-man roster which is full to add Lind.

Originally drafted by the Blue Jays in the 3rd round of the 2004 draft Lind hit .272/.360/.460/.820 with 20 HR and 87 RBI last year for the Brewers with a 19 wRC+ and 2.2 WAR. The downside with Lind is he has not hit lefties well, just .212/.277/.298/.575 in 112 plate appearances in 2015. While the Mariners may not go with a straight platoon at first if Lind is acquired, he most likely would sit against tougher lefties.
