MLB roundup: Adam Lind lands on DL with broken foot after mom orders MRI

Tom Szczerbowski

Lind played for three weeks before doctors discovered he had a broken foot.

The Blue Jays placed first baseman Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday after an MRI advised by his mother revealed a fracture in his right foot, according to Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star.

Lind suffered the injury while the Jays were in Baltimore in mid-June, per Griffin, but X-rays did not reveal a break. He was back in the lineup five days later, but the pain persisted, eventually resulting in his mom suggesting the MRI. Lind remained in action through Monday, meaning he played three weeks with the broken bone. During that stretch, Lind hit .286/.318/.429, pretty respectable numbers considering the circumstances.

Lind, who is hitting .320/.389/.489 on the season, joins All-Star slugger Edwin Encarnacion on the DL as Toronto's injury woes continue. The Jays have lost 18 of their last 27 games to fall out of first place in the American League East, but still remain only 2½ games behind the Orioles.

Springer makes terrific catch

Astros rookie outfielder George Springer has wowed people with his powerful bat on multiple early in his career. That continued against the Rangers on Wednesday, when he hit his 19th home run of the season. But perhaps more impressive was when Springer flashed some serious leather in the third inning:

Also in that game, Robbie Grossman had four hits and was a triple shy of the cycle through seven innings. That prompted an unintentionally humorous tweet from Rangers beat writer Evan Grant. Find the hidden words:
