MIAMI -- Scott Rice was unavailable Tuesday and likely will go unused in Wednesday's matinee because of a back issue, Terry Collins said.

Rice could not lift his arm because of the crankiness, the manager added.

Collins did say that Carlos Torres, unavailable earlier in the series, is OK to resume pitching. Torres had a lat muscle issue.
