STON -- The All-Star break comes as a welcomed respite for many during a long 162-game schedule. First baseman Travis Ishikawa is one of those who said he would enjoy the much-needed time off.
"It's been a tough year with the injuries and obviously I've had a tough season," said Ishikawa, who entered the Houston series hitting .167 over his last 10 games and .247 for the season.
"One day off is always nice but I think having a couple of days just to mentally get away from everything and I guess reset our minds and reset our focus and just come back ready and refreshed..."
Ishikawa said he had specific plans for the break.
