The Toronto Blue Jays have outrighted first baseman Adam Lind to Triple-A and have removed him from the 40-man roster, the team announced Thursday. In a related move, the club selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Robert Coello to replace Lind on the roster.

Lind, 28, was hitting just .186/.273/.314 on the season, with only twenty-two hits, six doubles, three home runs and fourteen walks while striking out twenty-four times in thirty-four games. Lind's rough season was down from his career averages of .263/.314/.459. He's still under his 4-year, $17.4 million contract, good through 2013.

Coello, 27, last saw Major League action in 2010, going just five innings and giving up four hits, five walks, and three earned runs while striking out five. He has six seasons of Minor League experience and holds a career ERA of 3.36 across several organizations, including the Los Angeles Angels, Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs.
