Adam Lind reached an agreement today with the Toronto Blue Jays on a 4 year, $18 million dollar contract with a club option beyond the 4 years.
According to the Associated Press Lind's contract is set up as follows, $600,000 signing bonus, $400,000 this year, and $5 million in each of the following three seasons. Toronto holds a $7 million option for 2014 with a $2 million buyout.Â The deal also includes a $7.5 million club option for 2015 with a $1 million buyout, and an $8 million club option for 2016 with a $500,000 buyout.
Lind hit .305, with 35 HR and 114 RBI last season and will definitely be a threat to do the same for this season and beyond.Â Great job by the Jays to lock him up for the next few years.
