The White Sox and the Cuban first baseman say the move is a precaution. The DH night gives him a chance to get more rest to help clear up the issue.
Speaking through an interpreter, Abreu says Friday: ''It bothers me a little bit. We don't know exactly where it's coming from. It might be from playing, but it's nothing alarming.''
Manager Robin Ventura says the problem probably is a result of fouling pitches off the ankle. Ventura says Abreu is not comfortable wearing a leg guard and the righty batter has hit his front foot a few times.
Abreu was batting .266 with 12 home runs and 35 RBIs.
