I would rather see Cooper get everyday playing time over Lind
. That's how little I value him.
Over the past 3 seasons, Lind has a combined WAR of -0.2, good for 3rd worst in the league, ahead of only Ty Wigginton and Chone Figgins.
While Cooper's lack of power isn't ideal at least you know he'll hit for good average. Cooper uses an entire field. Plus with Bautista and Encarnacion there is plenty of power in that lineup.
