Back issues have plagued Lind throughout the past few seasons. He started experiencing back spasms in 2011, as noted by Aaron Gleeman of Hardball Talk. The back injury forced Lind to spend time on the DL in 2011, and the issue reoccurred in 2012, earning Lind another stint on the disabled list.
The injury problems hampered Lind at the plate, as he hit .251 in 2011 and .255 in 2012. The left-handed hitter has revived his career this season, hitting .329/.388/.550 in 250 plate appearances.
Lind's resurgence has helped the Blue Jays climb back into contention, as the team entered Sunday's game with a 40-40 record after starting slow this season. However, Toronto still sits in last place in the AL East, and a serious injury to Lind would deal a blow to their playoff aspirations.
