Asdrubal, Fukudome rest in Texas finale
ARLINGTON -- Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, hitless in eight at-bats in this series against the Rangers, was given the day off Thursday. Extending back to the Indians' two games against the White Sox, Cabrera is hitless in his last 16 at-bats.

"It's just a day off for Asdrubal," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "It has nothing to do with the way he's hitting."

Kosuke Fukudome, who has played in 44 consecutive games, because of team injuries, since being acquired from the Cubs, also had the day off.

"He deserved one since he has played every single game since he came over," Acta said.

Acta did acknowledge that Cabrera has been showing some signs of fatigue. He is 2-for-19 with a double and a run scored on the current road trip.

"He's scuffling a little bit," Acta said. "It's appropriate that he gets a day off here and there."
