Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi could be a nice play on Monday. Update: Giambi is in Monday's starting lineup.
Insight: Giambi is a career .325 hitter with three homers versus Boston right-hander John Lackey. Add in a strong wind blowing out to right field and he's a viable fantasy option. Giambi has homered in two of his last five games.

Description: The Indians have activated DH Jason Giambi on the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: He was out with a strained calf. Giambi is hitless for the season in ten at-bats and doesn't usually see enough action in his pinch hitting role to warrant attention from fantasy owners.

Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi is a career 6-for-16 (.375) with four home runs versus Kansas City starter Bruce Chen.
Insight: This is contrary to Giambi's career numbers which show he's a much better hitter against right-handers (.283, .945 OPS) than lefties (.264, .852 OPS). With DH Ryan Raburn batting .191 this season and unfavorable numbers against Chen, expect to see Giambi in the lineup and he'll have fantasy value if started.

Description: Indians DH Jason Giambi has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: He was dealing with a broken rib. At age 43, Giambi (.183, 9 HR, 31 RBI last season) is the oldest active player in Major League Baseball. He was hitless in 10 minor league at bats, so isn't likely to be ready for your fantasy lineup.

Description: Cleveland DH Jason Giambi has suffered a non-displaced rib fracture and will miss 3-4 weeks, according to the team
Insight: It's pretty incredible that Giambi is still playing at age 43 but things heal slowly at that age. Though he did smack nine homers in 2013, we doubt he'll get enough at bats to warrant fantasy consideration this season.

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).
