Looks like the Giants will be giving Abe time off until the 17th.  And it seems they are a little worried about Abe taking a foul ball off his shin.

Shinnosuke Abe did not take part in pre-game practice on Saturday and was not available to play.  There was some concern his absence on Saturday might have something to do with taking a foul ball off his right shin during Friday's game, but it seems the team just figured they'd take this time to give Abe an extra day of rest.
