Sunday night linkage..
- Blue Jays manager John Farrell would not comment on last night's news that Adam Lind was placed on outright waivers and spoke as though the slugger will remain with the organization, writes Chris Toman of MLB.com. The skipper believes that Lind can find his way back to Toronto with a "controlled aggressiveness" at the plate.
- The Indians plan to stick by Johnny Damon despite his struggles so far with the team, writes MLB.com's Justin Albers. Damon has a clause in his contract which would allow him to be released if he isn't getting enough playing time or isn't a good fit for the team.
- Offseason acquisition Mark Ellis has been a tremendous clubhouse influence and will be sorely missed by the Dodgers after undergoing emergency surgery on Saturday, writes Steve Dilbeck of the Los Angeles Times. Had the surgery been put off for six or seven hours, the veteran could have potentially lost his left leg, Dilbeck writes.
