Adam Lind was held out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday night, but he did get into the game as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning. Lind grounded out to second base with a pair of runners on in his only at-bat. It marked the first time Lind appeared in a game since he fouled a ball off his right foot on Saturday in Baltimore.

The veteran designated hitter is expected to be available as a pinch-hitter this weekend in Cincinnati as the Blue Jays play a three-game Interleague series. Edwin Encarnacion will continue to receive all of the starts at first base.

Brett Lawrie wasn't in the starting lineup one day after he was struck on his left hand on a pitch from Chase Whitley on Wednesday. Lawrie also is considered day to day and is expected to make his return this weekend in Cincinnati. Juan Francisco got the start at third base while second base duties went to Steve Tolleson for Thursday's series finale.
