From Svrluga, re. B):

Indeed, Dmitri Young's tight back made him unavailable to pinch hit with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth inning of today's 8-7 loss to the Phillies. Willie Harris thus hit, and he grounded out to first to end the frame.

"Dmitri Young was not available for the game," Manager Manny Acta said. "He came up to me and said that his back was too tight. He couldn't get it loose and he couldn't play today."

Young declined comment after the game. Acta said Young in fact had an MRI, and that will be examined. He will also be checked out by a doctor in St. Louis. For now, he's day-to-day, but this thing may have gotten worse.

A 300 pound smiling paperweight. Glorious. Just what we need.
