"Atkins was held out of the lineup Friday, and manager Clint Hurdle said he will give him a few days off to see if it breaks him out of his slump, the Associated Press reports.
Spin: Atkins is hitting .159 in his last 22 games. "I'll give him a couple of days to refresh or rekindle and then we'll get back at it," Hurdle said."

Hes just out of the lineup to try to get him out of slump for the weekend.

Sounds like he's going to be optioned to the minors if he doesn't turn things around after these "extended days off."

They'd much rather play a contussed Holliday than Atkins :-?

That tells you pretty everything you need to know.
