Happy to have a 'J-O-B,' Lind lands in camp with Nationals

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) Even if Adam Lind signed with an annual contender that has a first baseman coming off his worst season and an aging left fielder, he spoke in frank terms while discussing what his contract offer from the Washington Nationals meant.

"It's a J-O-B," Lind said. "I mean, really. Didn't have too much to choose from, so it was nice that (general manager Mike Rizzo) offered me the opportunity to help this team."

It wasn't until two days before Washington's position players began reporting to spring training that Lind found what presumably will wind up being that job - as a pinch hitter, primarily, but perhaps also as someone who could spell Ryan Zimmerman at first base or Jayson Werth in left field. Zimmerman and Werth bat righty, and Lind hits from the left side.
