Fantasy Baseball's Line of the Day: 04/26/2011

1B/OF/DH Adam Lind of the Toronto Blue Jays went 3-for-5 with two home runs, five RBI and three runs scored in a 10-3 win over the Texas Rangers. It was his fifth career multihomer game and his third at Rangers Ballpark, where he now has nine home runs in his last 12 games.

Line: 5 AB, 3 R, 3 H, 5 RBI; 2 HR

My fantasy perspective: Lind's batting average has crept its way up to .256, which is better than last season's .237 but still way below his .305 average in 2009. If he can keep his average moving in a positive direction, at his current pace, he'd hit 21 home runs, drive in 120 runs and score 85. Those are very fantasy-relevant numbers for a first baseman.
