CBS Sports is reporting that a day after demoting Adam Lind to Triple-A Las Vegas, the Toronto Blue Jays also placed their struggling first baseman on outright waivers.

Danny Knobler of CBS Sports reports that although the team has not announced the move, Lind's name was among those placed on waivers on Friday according to a major league source.

Outright waivers are irrevocable, so if Lind is claimed by another Major League franchise he would immediately become their property.  

If claimed, that team would be responsible for the entire remaining value of Lind's contract, which will pay him $5 million this and next season and includes three club options that guarantee him another $3.5 million.

In 34 games this season with the Blue Jays, Lind hit .186 with three homers and 11 runs batted in, before being sent down to the Las Vegas 51s.

The 28-year-old had a career high 35 home runs and 114 RBIs in 2009, after which he was rewarded with the American League Silver Slugger award for the position of Designated Hitter.
