All-Star Erick Aybar went 0-for-4 on Friday and is just 13-for-70 (.186) since the break.

The Angels were fuming when Aybar was originally left off the All-Star squad after his nice first half (he later replaced Alex Gordon), but maybe he could have used the time off. With the slump, his season line of .267/.306/.377 is below his career mark.
