Adam Dunn will get a few days of rest in a manner similar to slumping teammate Alex Rios as manager Ozzie Guillen hopes his slugger will snap out of his 62-game malaise.

"Hopefully it will refresh his mind, get his stuff together and hopefully start over," Guillen said. "That's the reason I did it. Hopefully that works. We've been doing a lot of different things with him and nothing works. Hopefully a little break for a couple of days recharges his batteries."

Guillen wants Dunn to keep his faith, added that Dunn has taken early batting practice for each of the past five days.
