Outfielder Adam Lind was promoted from the Fisher Cats to the Triple-A Syracuse SkyChiefs today.

The 23-year-old Lind was having a tremendous season for New Hampshire. He led the Eastern League in many offensive categories, including home runs with 19, RBI with 71, slugging percentage at .543, and extra-base hits with 43. He also ranked second in the league with a .310 batting average.

Lind recently missed eight games after suffering a mild concussion, but in just his second game back from injury he went 2-for-5 with his league-leading 19th homer.

Earlier this season he tied a Fisher Cats franchise record by hitting safely in 16 straight games between May 20 and June 6.

He was originally selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the third round of the 2004 draft out of the University of South Alabama.
