Adam Lind is back.

Sent to Class AAA Las Vegas on option on May 17 and then offered on waivers with no takers, Lind batted .392 with eight homers and 29 RBI in 32 games with the 51s.

After the Toronto Blue Jays lost 9-0 to the Miami Marlins on Sunday, it was announced that Lind was rejoining the Blue Jays.

Lind began the season as the Blue Jays' cleanup hitter, but he played his way out of the four-hole and eventually out of the starting lineup.

The 28-year-old was batting .186 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 34 games when he was sent down.

There were a lot of factors that concerned the Blue Jays when he was demoted, including his physical condition and his passive nature at bat. But mostly they wanted him to try to regain the hitting form that has been missing for too long.

"The way he has been swinging in Las Vegas, he has gone down and done exactly what we had hoped to do and that's get into a positive frame of mind," manager John Farrell said. "He has gotten much better rhythm to his overall approach and swing. We're getting him back here to insert him into the lineup."

Outfielder Ben Francisco also returns to the team after being on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. That means Mike McCoy and David Cooper were sent back to Las Vegas.
