Toronto Blue Jays - Adam Lind

Lind isn't the first hitter you think of when naming the Blue Jays' sluggers, but he averaged 28 homers in a three-year span from 2009-11.<br>

Back injuries slowed him last year, and he was also demoted to the minors for a stretch. In 93 games with the Jays, he batted just .255 with 11 HRs and 45 RBIs.<br>

At just 29, Lind -- who can also play first base or a corner outfield spot -- shouldn't be written off. If he gets more pitches to hit thanks to Toronto's bolstered lineup, he could be in for a bounce-back season.
