When Adam Lind came to the Milwaukee Brewers via trade this winter, most reactions were the same. There were moans, groans and chuckles as most questioned whether he was the answer. So far however, Lind has been more than valuable to the Brewers. Not only has he hit, but he is one of the only bats that has done anything this April. His strong start has helped to earn him our Brewers’ April MVP.

Going strictly based on numbers to start the year, Lind has been head and shoulders above the rest of the team. As the month has come to a close, he is the only player to be batting over .300 with a current .333 average. He has also been the team’s biggest run producer, not only leading the team in batting average but also home runs, total bases, RBIs and OPS.
His start has been very important not only for the Brewers’ offense, but it could also be instrumental in the possible upcoming rebuild. Though he comes with health concerns, he has been able to remain on the field all month and prove that he can take the grind of playing first base, too. As a cheap bargain, with a very affordable option for next year, Lind could bring a nice return in a trade.
Throughout April, Lind has proved all doubters wrong by not only staying healthy, but also mashing in the Brewers’ lineup. As the calender flips to May his sustained success could prove vital not only for the offense, but also the future talent that could be brought in if and when he is dealt.
