The Red Sox have released first baseman Adam Lind after he opted out of his minor league contract.

Lind signed with the Red Sox in May after opting out of a similar pact with the Yankees. This after being unable to find work this past offseason despite hitting a pretty darn swell .303/.362/.513 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI in 301 plate appearances for the Nationals last season.

Lind struggled mightily in the minors this season, however, hitting .241/.302/.414 at Scranton in April and May and an even worse .216/.270/.398 at Pawtucket before his opt-out.

Now he’ll look for work elsewhere though, at 34, it’s hard to see where he may latch on.
