Adam Lind played catch prior to yesterday’s game and after receiving acupuncture and anti-inflammatory medication for his injured back the Blue Jays first baseman is hoping to rejoin the lineup Friday.

That would mean avoiding the disabled list, which Lind seemed to think was unlikely as recently as Tuesday, but Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that Lind’s back spasms have subsided.

David Cooper has started three times in Lind’s absence, with Edwin Encarnacion getting the other start at first base. Lind was hitting .313 with seven homers and an .858 OPS in 32 games prior to the injury.

    Oh please let it be true! This dude is on fire; just smokin’ hot. He would eat the Twins ALIVE. The Jays need another sweep to really start to make some noise. Their pitching is solid now; just get enough guys hitting and it’ll all happen. Adam Lind is the sack and the Jays need him like the Twins need Mauer.
