LIND AND McGOWAN
David Srinivasan, a special contributor to ESPN.COM, mentioned Adam Lind and Dustin McGowan in his Minor Achievement: Adding it all up on Friday.
Lind has hit a homer in each of the last two games and has found a home in the #2 slot in the Blue Jays lineup. Hitting in front of Vernon Wells, Frank Thomas, Troy Glaus and Lyle Overbay, Lind has scored 9 runs in 13 games. For all you fantasy players with room on your roster Lind would make a nice addition.
McGowan has pitched outstanding this season although his 1-2 record doesn’t show for it. In five starts McGowan has struck out 29 while allowing just 9 walks over 22 innings. With Josh Towers having been moved to the bullpen Victor Zambrano will get the next shot as the Jays #5 starter. If Zambrano also falters the Jays have a nice insurance policy in Triple-A with McGowan. If you noticed yesterday the Blue Jays five spot started and McGowan is starting on the same day in the Syracuse rotation.
