8/23 Minor League Summary

Jays Organization Player of the Day:
Adam Lind

Lind had a breakout season last year vaulting to the top of prospect lists and shot up through the system to get a major league shot. He struggled earlier this season with the Blue Jay and while some people are concerned about his struggles his .289/.331/.470 in AAA is nothing to worry about. He does have plate discipline issues he is dealing with but from what I've seen... I believe this is just a slight slump and he will still be a great starter if not fringe all-star for the Blue Jays.

Syracuse 7, Ottawa 3 (Game 1 - 7 innings)
