Adam Lind missed the past three games with a lower back injury and the Blue Jays have placed him on the disabled list.

Two months ago Lind was dropped from the 40-man roster and sent to Triple-A after the other 29 teams passed on a chance to claim his contract off waivers. He’s returned to hit .288 with five homers and an .850 OPS in 24 games since, so the back problems are a tough break.

He’s not expected to miss much more than the minimum 15 days and the Blue Jays recalled first baseman David Cooper from Triple-A to take Lind’s roster spot.

    He had been showing some home run power since his return. Cooper is OK but does not have the same home run power as Lind. Last night, the Jays had both of their speedsters (Davis and Gose) in the lineup. Expect to see a lot of the same until Bautista or Lind returns.

    Well, one of the two greatest guys in the universe won his wager with the other one concerning Job. I bet you the one he beat demanded another try and they settled on the Feather Lice as their next test subject.

    Dude can’t catch a break. His recurring back issues now qualify as a major concern.
