Brewers' Ryan Braun bats leadoff for first time in career


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was slotted in the leadoff position in the team's starting lineup on Saturday, the first time in his career he's batted leadoff. 

The Brewers' lineup had other major changes on Saturday. Martin Maldonado will bat seventh and catch, in just his fourth game of 2015. Regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy replaces Adam Lind at first base. 

"Trying to do something different, getting [Braun] sparked," Roenicke said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's had better at-bats, but just to get his mind off some things and maybe on something else. Then also, I think he is swinging the bat better. He's just not getting hits. Put him in a little different atmosphere. Hopefully he can get on base for us and have the other guys drive him in."

Hector Gomez gets the start at second base, batting sixth. He replaces Scooter Gennett

Logan Schaefer is in center field, batting eighth. It will be his first start of the season.

"He had told me that before," said manager Ron Roenicke per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He said, 'You move me wherever is best for the team. I don’t care. I just want to win and I want the best lineup out there.

"It's nice because it frees me up that if something does come up I can talk to him. But in this case he came in wanting to talk and we both talked about it."

Lind went 2 for 3 with a double and two RBI on Friday. He is hitting .615 (8 for 13) with three doubles, a home run and four RBI through four games.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Both players have platooned for most of their careers, only matching up against right-handers. 

"It’s probably going to be pitcher by pitcher," Roenicke said, per the Journal Sentinel. "They’ll show me whether they should stay in there or we should make a chance. So if it’s a really tough left-hander on a lefty, I probably wouldn’t do this."

Brewers' Roenicke chooses Carlos Gomez to bat leadoff


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Tuesday's spring lineup against the Reds will be the team's Opening Day batting order, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Tuesday's lineup had center fielder Carlos Gomez batting first, and he was followed by catcher Jonathan Lucroy, right fielder Ryan Braun, third base Aramis Ramirez, first baseman Adam Lind, left fielder Khris Davis, second baseman Scooter Gennett and shortstop Jean Segura.

Lind is hoping to play four innings Thursday provided he doesn't suffer any setbacks overnight. He's 5 for 10 at the plate this spring.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"It's better it's the first week of camp instead of the last," Lind said. "So, we'll see. Hopefully, it will go away and stay away for a while. Hopefully, it's my body just getting into baseball shape."

Lind's back problems are related to an issue with a lower disc.

"It's exactly the same (as in the past)," he said. "It's part of me. I never know when it's going to pop up. That's kind of the problem with the whole thing. I didn't really show any symptoms before it happened. It just kind of got tight through the course of a day. By the next day, it was kind of bad. All I can do is do the best I can to try and stop it from happening."

Lind hopes to be on the field in "a couple more days."

Brewers acquire Adam Lind from Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2014) The Brewers have acquired first baseman Adam Lind from the Blue Jays, MLBDailyDish.com reports. CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman has confirmed the deal, and Sportsnet.ca initially reported that the two teams were close to working out a deal to send the first baseman to Milwaukee.

The Blue Jays exercised Lind's option for $7.5 million early Saturday, but the first baseman was reported to be drawing plenty of trade interest. The Brewers had first basemen Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds both post OPS marks of under .700 in 2014. Lind hit 321/.381/.479 with six home runs and 40 RBI in 290 at-bats over 96 games with the Blue Jays. There is no word on who the Brewers will send to Toronto in exchange for Lind, but the Blue Jays could use some pitching help.

Report: Inquiries pouring in for Blue Jays 1B/DH Adam Lind


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Fresh off a season in which he batted .321, Blue Jays first baseman Adam Lind is receiving plenty of attention in the trade market, according to the Toronto Sun.

Lind totaled six home runs and 40 RBI in 2014. "I hear the Blue Jays are getting a lot of interest on Lind and not just from American League teams," an executive told the Sun.

He started 47 games at first base and 36 at designated hitter this season. His limited skills as a position player makes interest from NL teams a bit of a surprise. What is not a surprise is that teams are intrigued by his contract situation. The Jays will likely pick up his 7.5 million option for 2015 and, if he performs well, his $8 million option for the following year.

The Jays also have an option on Lind for 2016 at $8 million.


Adam Lind anxious about contract situation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"I'd like to get a little more clarity than I had last year," Lind said. "I think I've been here long enough that I deserve a straight answer. Just tell me, just let me know. We're all on the same team here, right? I played injured a lot this year, unknowingly, I guess, if you want to call it that, and we're all on the same team. I know it's front office and clubhouse, but you want players to be happy."

Lind has certainly produced when healthy despite a lack of power. He boasts a .324/.386/.489 stat line with six home runs and 39 RBI in 278 at-bats.
