Day off for cleanup?

Baltimore manager Dave Trembley said Monday that he’ll probably give right fielder Nick Markakis a day off on Tuesday to rest and think about something other than his slump. Markakis, who singled on Monday, had gone into the game on a 2-for-26 skid.

Baltimore’s cleanup hitter has played in every game this season, and he’s started all but one. Trembley attempted to give Markakis a day off back in June but had to use him as a late replacement. Markakis played in 161 games in 2007 and 157 games last season.
