Drafted in the 3rd round (83rd overall) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2004 (signed for $445,000)
An eighth-round pick out of an Indiana high school by the Twins in 2002, Lind is a draft-eligible sophomore who will go as far as his bat takes him. He's put together a consistent career for South Alabama, posting nearly identical seasons and showing a fluid stroke with good bat speed and raw power potential. His swing played well with wood last summer as he hit .269 (well above league average) in the Cape Cod League. While he has shown the ability to draw a walk, his power would evince itself more in games with better pitch recognition and strike-zone judgment. Lind isn't a great athlete, making him a fringy defender in left field and better suited for first base.
