ST. PETERSBURG – Adam Lind visited with a foot specialist on Friday afternoon in Charlotte, North Carolina and the news, as reported by the club, is positive. While the specialist, Dr. Robert Anderson, confirmed a fracture of the first metatarsal, theres apparent clarification of Linds timeline to return. Hell be back in two to three weeks, not the six to eight weeks Lind suggested when confirming his diagnosis on Wednesday in Anaheim. When presented with Linds comment that he requested an MRI on his foot because his mother thought it would be a good idea, manager John Gibbons came the defence of the clubs medical and training staff. "That was already scheduled," said Gibbons. "(Head trainer) George (Poulis), they talked about when it started to bother him in Oakland." There remains confusion about who knew what and when it was known. Lind fouled a pitch off the top of his right foot on June 14 in Baltimore. He underwent an X-ray and a CT scan, both of which showed no break. After pinch-hitting in games on June 19 (New York), June 20 and 21 (Cincinnati), Lind returned to the starting lineup on June 23, a home game against the Yankees. He acknowledged to TSN.ca on June 23 that he hadnt returned to full health but felt he needed to be in the starting lineup following injuries to Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista. Lind said, on Wednesday, hed been told by the specialist who read his CT scan that he could play as long as he could tolerate the pain; that he couldnt make the injury worse. What remains unclear is whether Lind was given bad advice. At this point its impossible to know whether the foot fractured because he played 17 games on it in a weakened state. "Ive got no idea, Im not a doctor but its always a possibility," said Gibbons. Given the inability to go back in time, its also impossible to determine whether the CT scan missed the fracture. "It was starting to bother him again," said Gibbons. "When he first had the CT scan they didnt see anything and then he started feeling pretty good. He was productive in some limited roles and then it started bothering him again." Gibbons then appealed to a Canadians hockey mentality. "Its big league baseball, man," said Gibbons. "Play when you can play and he was productive." Lind was to speak to the media after Friday nights game. Hes due to arrive in the Tampa Bay area, from Charlotte, while his teammates play the first of a three-game series against the Rays. In the fifth inning, the media were informed that general manager Alex Anthopoulos would be speaking post-game. Lind, the club said, "wasnt available." It will be interesting to hear the explanation of Linds timeline. The prognosis is six to eight weeks from the time of the injury (June 14) rather than from Tuesdays MRI. Under that premise, the two to three week scenario presented by the Blue Jays makes sense. The club released a statement at 4:13pm et. on Friday afternoon. Arriving players hadnt heard the news that Lind could return as early as late this month. They seemed surprised. "Thats not what Lind told me," said one player, who interpreted a conversation he had with Lind to mean that Lind was six to eight weeks away from playing again. Make of it what you will. Whats a little more confusion? Its been clear as mud up to now.
