Adam Lind continues to progress through rehabilitation for his lower back injury and could be back in the lineup as soon as Friday.

The 27-year-old has missed the Blue Jays' last three games with the ailment after leaving Saturday's game against the Tigers in the seventh inning.

Lind has been receiving a number of treatments, including acupuncture and anti-inflammatory medication, which finally began to set in over the past two days. He played catch before Wednesday's game and was scheduled to hit off a tee as well.
