5) Adam Lind – Milwaukee Brewers

Still searching for a quality answer at first base in the post-Prince Fielder era, the Milwaukee Brewers traded for left-handed-swinging Adam Lind this offseason. The 31-year-old has spent his entire career with the Toronto Blue Jays – so 2015 will be his National League debut.

Last season north of the border, Lind batted .321/.381/.479 – the best numbers of his big league career, while also adding six home runs and 40 RBI in just 96 games. Just a year prior, he clubbed 23 home runs – a respectable mark for the former third-round pick.

His best season came back in 2009, when he launched 35 homers and drove in 115 runs, while also adding 46 doubles for Toronto. He has not replicated that type of success since – but if he can get back into the 20-homer range for the Brew Crew, he could be an answer moving forward.
