Adam LaRoche: (Back) Hopes to Play Tuesday

Update: LaRoche (back) said he was feeling better on Monday and hopes to play Tuesday, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports. "It's a little better today," LaRoche said. "I didn't do anything. I think that's what got it better. I took some muscle relaxing stuff to stop the grip [in my back]. I can move around a little more today."

Recommendation: He's missed two games so far with a sore back, with Chad Tracy filling in for him at first base, and LaRoche should be back soon even if he gets held out again on Tuesday.
