Lind was taken off the 40-man roster to make room for Coello, a 27-year-old right-hander who was 3-1 with a 3.22 ERA in 17 games for Las Vegas.

Lind was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on May 17 after batting .186 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 34 games for the Jays.

Toronto had a spot to fill after left-hander Aaron Laffey was optioned to Las Vegas following Wednesday's 4-1 win over Baltimore.
