Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi will get the start on Wednesday at DH against Bronson Arroyo and the Reds.
Insight: Giambi is a career .333 hitter with three home runs in 18 at-bats versus the Cincinnati right-hander. He's worth a play on Wednesday.

Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi went 2-for-4 with a double, a homer, five RBIs and three runs Saturday against the Astros.
Insight: Giambi has only played four games this year and really serves as a pinch-hitter and another coach on the bench for manager Terry Francona. Best case scenario is that he duplicates his 2011 numbers -- .260, 13 HR, 32 RBI, .958 OPS (with Colorado).
3/25/2013 10:00:00 PM
Description: Indians first baseman Jason Giambi has been placed on the 15-day disabled list.

2/10/2013 1:42:00 PM
Description: 1B/DH Jason Giambi signed a minor league contract with the Indians which includes an invitation to spring training.

Description: Colorado PH/1B Jason Giambi "owns" Miami hurler Mark Buehrle with a career .414 batting average, four homers and 11 RBI in 29 at-bats.
Insight: Should you see than Giambi is in the starting lineup for Todd Helton (.219), don't hesitate to get Jason in your starting lineup. In limited opportunities this season, Giambi is batting .321 with a .987 OPS.
5/2/2012 7:56:00 PM
Description: Jason Giambi delivered a walk-off three-run homer Wednesday afternoon against the Dodgers. It was Giambi's first blast of the season.
Insight: Giambi (.222, 1 HR, 5 RBIs) has only had 18 at bats so far this season so even if he contributes with a clutch pinch-hit every once in a while, he won't get enough playing time to be a realistic fantasy option at first base.
4/20/2012 10:05:00 AM
Description: If Jason Giambi gets the opportunity to play against Milwaukee starter Shaun Marcum, it would be hard to not take a flier on the Rockies first baseman. He's faced Marcum 14 times, with a career .500 batting average including three home runs and eight RBI (1.917 OPS).
Insight: Giambi has made two starts this season with subpar results - batting just .143.

Description: Jason Giambi hit three home runs and drove in seven in Thursday's 7-1 victory over the Phillies.
Insight: Giambi looked like the Giambi of old tonight, but I wouldn't read too much into it. He remains DH in a league that doesn't have one.

Description: Giambi re-signed with the Rockies Monday on a minor-league deal.
