On Sunday, a relaxed Adam Lind predicted that he would be back in the lineup for Monday's game as his lower back pain was responding to treatment. But Monday arrived and Lind instead suffered back spasms and was headed for an MRI and not a return to the lineup.

"He's not available, he's still the same as yesterday (Sunday) and I haven't seen much improvement," Jays manager John Farrell said Monday prior to the Tigers-Jays game. "It's day-to-day right now. He is symptom-free when it comes to neurological, but the spasms are strong."

Given the wonky nature of backs — they tend to get worse before they get better — Lind looks to be heading for a stint on the disabled list.
