was hitting .186 with a .586 OPS on May 16th. The Blue Jays organization had seen enough and Lilnd was sent down as a result. Lind dominated in 32 games with Triple-A Las Vegas. And even though it is considered one of the better places to hit in the hitting heavy Pacific Coast League, Lind's .392 batting average and 1.112 OPS had to be acknowledged as a recovery. The Blue Jays recalled Lind back on June 25th. Since that time he has crushed 4 home runs in just 35 at-bats and hit a respectable .286. He appears to have regained his confidence and could be worth adding in a mixed league depending on what you may need.
- In a game made for trade deadline drama, Zack Greinke and Wandy Rodriguez face off against each other for the Brewers and Astros.
- Dan Uggla is 2 for his last 33 and has just one hit in July. He has been dropped to 7th in the Braves order.
- The Cardinals also aren't getting much from their second basemen. That's why Matt Carpenter made a start there yesterday and why Kolten Wong can't be discounted in 2012.
- Matt Kemp said he is not sore at all. He is going to play two rehab games for Triple-A today and tomorrow then participate in the home run derby on Monday. Shouldn't someone from the Dodgers be putting a stop to that? And while we're on the subject, shouldn't the Marlins do the same with Giancarlo Stanton?
- Francisco Liriano's success since being sent down can be attributed to his ability to keep the ball down in the zone according to Fangraphs. Liriano walked 6 yesterday.
- Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers said he'd be open-minded when it came to the prospect of trading Justin Upton. The likelihood that Upton is dealt is not great, but Towers' response was interesting.
- Chase Headley has drawn interest reportedly from seven different teams. He would improve his fantasy value in virtually any move, but it would also give Jedd Gyorko a shot in San Diego for deeper leagues.
- Colby Lewis will be activated without needing a rehab outing after the break.
- Evan Longoria is still weeks away from a potential return to Tampa Bay.
- Clay Buchholz threw a side-session, Carl Crawford is heading to Triple-A, and Will Middlebrooks will not need a DL stint for the banged up Red Sox.
