Blue Jays Place Adam Lind On DL

Look at the speed Cooper brings to the club. Mandatory Credit: John E. Sokolowski-US PRESSWIRE

The JAys have put Adam Lind on the DL, retroactive to Jule 26, with a mild back strain (if it is mild, why isn't he just day to day?). David Cooper gets the call from Las Vegas.

It is Cooper's second time up with the Jays this season. He hit .292, with 2 home runs ni 24 game earlier this season. He is htting .314 with 10 home runs and 27 doubles with the 51's.

I wonder if the back problems caused Lind's bat to cool off over the last couple of weeks. He started off great, when he was recalled, but slowed. Since being called back up Adam has hit .288 with 5 home runs and 16 RBI in 24 games,For th season he is .227 with 8 home runs and 27 RBI.

Nice that Cooper gets another chance to show what he can do. I'd guess he'll mostly DH against RHP and spell Edwin Encarnacion at first base occasionally.
