Adam Lind, who has missed the past seven games because of pain in his lower back, had been told he will not play in Monday night's opening game in Detroit also.

The news came as a surprise to Lind who went through a series of drills and test during Sunday's game, passed them all and felt no additional pain.

"I'm a little disappointed," Lind said. "I went hard today."

Before the game Lind was all smiles and believed he had turned a corner and the thinking is the Jays are just being cautious.
